With a show floor of more than 250 marine interiors suppliers, numerous conference sessions, and the co-located Marine Catering Expo, there’s going to be a lot going on at the Miami Beach Convention Center come June 19. To help streamline your experience at the event and ensure you get a taste of the industry’s latest and most innovative offerings, we’ll be offering 16 live product demonstrations across two days. Taking place at their booths, exhibitors will showcase just one product or service during a designated 15-minute time slot.
Taking place from 10:30AM – 3:45PM on Wednesday, June 19 and Thursday, June 20, attending every live product demo could prove quite the challenge. To streamline the process, we’ve selected our top picks for each day (although, in our eyes, they’re all must-attends!)
