The International WorkBoat Show, a leading trade fair and conference, is specifically targeted at experts from the maritime industry. It serves as a platform for owners, operators, shipbuilders, as well as suppliers and vendors of commercial vessels to exchange information about the latest trends, technologies, and services. The fair, which takes place annually at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, attracts visitors and exhibitors from a wide range of maritime industry sectors..

The fair is organized by Diversified Business Communications, a company specializing in the organization of trade fairs and conferences.

The name "WorkBoat" reflects the fair's focus on working boats, such as tugs, military and police boats, and barges. This event is known for its extensive exhibitions, covering a wide range of products and services. This includes everything from ship equipment and technologies to solutions for salvage, refurbishment, and ship reconstruction. The offering is complemented by a diverse program featuring shows and lectures, the Significant Boats Awards, demonstrations, and special presentations.

A particular highlight is the "Significant Boats Awards," where ships are recognized for being groundbreaking in their category or participating in unique missions. These awards emphasize the role of the fair as a center for innovation and recognition in the maritime industry. The International WorkBoat Show is further enhanced by the annual Submarine Symposium, which discusses topics such as new vehicles and technologies, global diving operations, research and expeditions, submarine rescue systems, advanced underwater technology, and advanced acrylic materials.

The fair also has significant importance for the city of New Orleans and the entire country, as it highlights the maritime economy and its contribution to the local and national economy.
