Oriental’s annual In-water Boat Show has grown exponentially since its beginnings in 2009. The 2015 show drew 95 exhibitors from as far away Hampton, Virginia, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bryson City, NC. In addition to nautical goods and services, dealers and brokers brought in boats on land and in the slips at Oriental Harbor Marina, many of which were available for in-water sea trials.
Based on the combination of number of vendors, number of boats, sales attributed and number of attendees, the Oriental show has become one of the largest and most successful in-water shows between Annapolis and Savannah. The 2016 show is scheduled for April 8-10. (From orientalboatshow.com)
The 2015 show set a record with 95 registered exhibitors – 2016 has already topped that with 102 vendors onboard and more coming.
