The "Detroit Boat Show", a renowned boat exhibition, takes place at Huntington Place in Detroit. This annually event, organized by the Michigan Boating Industries Association, is widely recognized for its significance in the boating and water sports industry. Over the last 60 years, the show has established itself as one of the leading boat exhibitions in the country and ranks among the top 5 in the USA in terms of sales and attendance..

The focus of the show is on a wide range of products and services related to water sports. It features boats of all types and sizes, as well as special offerings for anglers, wakeboarders, and water skiers, including cruise options. Additionally, boat repairs, navigation electronics, and safety equipment are presented. Exhibitors come from various sectors, including boat and equipment manufacturers, water sports service providers, and nautical accessory dealers.

A distinctive feature of the Detroit Boat Show is its close connection to the city of Detroit and the boating industry in Michigan. It reflects the maritime tradition and the importance of water sports in the region. The visitors to the show are mainly professionals from the boating industry, water sports enthusiasts, and general consumers interested in maritime life.

The show also offers numerous highlights and interactive experiences. These include meetings with renowned personalities, opportunities to receive free t-shirts, paddle painting workshops, courses on boating safety education, and career days with information on training and career opportunities. The offerings are complemented by stalls selling nautical goods like clothing, decorations, sunglasses, and much more.

With its central location in Detroit, the show is easily accessible and provides an excellent opportunity to explore the city and its maritime culture.
