Strictly Sail Miami Returns to Miamarina at Bayside

Strictly Sail Miami Returns to Miamarina at Bayside

Show Moves Back to Traditional Venue February 17-21, 2011

CHICAGO (June 14, 2010) – The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), North America’s leading boat and sportshow producer, announced today that Strictly Sail Miami is returning to its traditional landscape of an all-sail environment at Miamarina at Bayside, in 2011 to meet the needs and preferences of exhibitors and attendees. The show will continue to be held in conjunction with the Miami International Boat Show February 17-21, 2011.

Strictly Sail Miami made a temporary move in 2010 to Sea Isle Marina, co-locating with the in-water power portion of the Miami International Boat Show, which show organizers deemed necessary for the show to stay viable in the future.

“While Sea Isle Marina was a needed move to address industry demands in 2010, the return to Strictly Sail Miami’s traditional home at Miamarina at Bayside is the most logical and favored location for the sailing industry and enthusiasts,” said Kevin Murphy, Strictly Sail Miami show manager. “We’re thrilled to be returning to Bayside, a venue that has proved ideal in providing one place for everyone to reap the maximum benefits of an all-sail show.”

Miamarina at Bayside gives exhibitors and attendees an ideal all-sail buying and selling environment with an in-water marina and upland space adjacent to the sailboats, plus restaurants, entertainment, parking and hotels nearby.

The 26th annual Strictly Sail Miami boat show will take place February 17-21, 2011 with the Miami International Boat Show. Additional information about the show can be found at StrictlySailMiami.com.
