FLIBS is held from October 30 – November 3, 2019 and runs from 10am – 7pm most days. There are over 100,000 people that attend every year from 50+ countries with 1200+ vendors showing their products. Visitors come to see every type of yacht from small tenders, sail boats, fishing boats to super mega yachts. In fact, there are 6 miles of floating docks where Yacht brokerage companies and yacht builders exhibit their yachts for sale.
The products are overwhelming with 3 million sq. feet of exhibition space …design, decorating, destinations, marinas, electronics, engines, fashion, finance…you name it you will find it here.
You will find a huge variety of people that attend. A family just there to see these magnificent yachts, clients looking to purchase or charter a yacht, someone looking for products for their boats, yacht brokerage companies, builders, crew agencies and of course thousands of crew. It is a brilliant display and something that should not be missed!
Our team attends every year to represent The Crew Network and our parent company, Fraser. We are located at the Fraser stand, in the heart of the show at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center. Representatives from the TCN Fort Lauderdale, Viareggio and Antibes offices will attend this year; Diane Leander, Alessandro D’Angelo, Kristen Husk, Iva Nyagolova, Ana Splosnova will be there to meet you in person. It is great for us to meet and greet new crew and seasoned crew alike in the context of a boat show. We like to take time to get to know you better and to reconnect with familiar faces because it makes it a more personal experience for us – and ultimately everything we do is about people and connecting with them. We check out the yachts and say hello to the crew. We are here to get to know you and to help you in finding your next great job as well as to meet Captains or Owners who may be around the show and need some assistance with recruiting crew.
During FLIBS there are many events around town as well and lots to experience in Ft. Lauderdale (the USA yachting capital). So get your deck shoes and sunscreen on and come and see us and the many sights at The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show – we look forward to meeting you!
