Miami Yacht Show announces ‘VIP Experience’ for 2018

Miami Yacht Show has announced a new ‘VIP Experience’ for the 2018 event, with amenities designed to make the show even more enjoyable for attendees and exhibitors.

With the 30th edition set to take place between 15th and 19th February 2018, the show attracts a global audience to more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and a wide array of the latest marine technology and accessories.

This year, a new floating VIP waterfront lounge will be located at the centre of the show amongst some of the largest yachts on display, and will offer pass holders an open bar and refreshments, special showcases and concierge services, all within a climate-controlled setting. The dedicated concierge service, provided by Delmay & Partners, will provide a personalised service for arranging private yacht tours and other requests.

Featured among the special VIP showcases is Watches & Wonders Miami, a nearby event representing more than 20 of the world's leading luxury timepiece manufacturers. VIP Experience guests will be able to enjoy The Mastery of Time virtual experience, placing them at the centre of watchmaking's milestone inventions.

Watches & Wonders Miami coincides with the Miami Design District Concours: a showing of more than 100 of the most significant post-war vintage cars, sports cars and supercars including iconic examples from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce. 

A shuttle service will be available for VIP ticket holders to and from the Miami Yacht Show on Collins Avenue to Watches & Wonders Miami, located in the Miami Design District.

Mary Bender, vice president of marketing for Informa, the show's producer and co-owner said, "We are excited to welcome guests, exhibitors and sponsors to an event that has been elevated on many fronts."

“The new VIP Experience complements our recent re-branding of the show, formerly known as Yachts Miami Beach, to reflect its uniquely beautiful location and special appeal among yacht shows worldwide."

Priced at $150 per day per person, the VIP Experience ticket includes admission to the show and may be purchased online at

In addition to its iconic Collins Avenue location, the Miami Yacht Show also includes a display of superyachts on Watson Island at the Island Gardens Deep Harbour marina, known as Superyacht Miami. Transport can be arranged between the two show locations by registering at
