Atlantic City Boat Show moved to spring

Boat Show Captains Table

Visitors tour the Atlantic City Boat Show at Atlantic City Convention Center in February 2020, shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down so many businesses and events. The Convention Center will return to normalcy Sunday with the start of ImportExpo, the first such event held there since the pandemic.

The show was moved from its traditional February dates due to COVID-19, according to a news release Friday.

“We are continuing to monitor the impacts of COVID-19 in the region and working with federal, state and local authorities to ensure a safe event this spring for our guests and everyone involved,” show manager Jon Pritko said in the release. “A comprehensive health and safety plan in alignment with the guidelines and protocols of the Atlantic City Convention Center has been developed and submitted. We look forward to welcoming attendees to this annual boating tradition in April.”

As of Friday, the Convention Center was partly being used as one of six state mega vaccination sites.
