Cancun International Boat Show & Marine Expo
We invite Florida marine companies to exhibit at the upcoming Cancun International Boat Show & Marine Expo!
In its Pleasure Boating Guide, the U.S. Department of Commerce ranks Mexico as the second largest export market for the U.S. marine industry and the U.S. is the largest exporter of marine products to Mexico. The marine industry has experienced double digit growth since 2017 and this trend is expected to continue. There are almost 200,000 registered boats in Mexico and among the four major marine hubs in Mexico, the Cancun area is second in the volume of marine product imports. U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement affords U.S. origin exports duty-free status making for streamlined market entry. Mexico boasts over 40 marinas and Cancun offers state-of-the-art dry storage and luxury accommodations making it a world-renowned yachting destination.
In just its second year, the 2022 Cancun International Boat Show (CIBS) doubled in size and registrations for CIBS 2023 are tracking 20% greater than last year.
