Progressive® Insurance Minneapolis Boat Show®

Friday, January 12, 2018 -

The 2018 Progressive® Insurance Minneapolis Boat Show® cruises to its home port at the Minneapolis Convention Center January 11 – 14 for four days of summer fun. The annual extravaganza offers attendees the chance to view, board and shop hundreds of new boats and innovative marine accessories. The Progressive® Insurance Minneapolis Boat Show® is a family favorite for replacing winter blues with dreams of summer fun spent on the water. This year’s show kicks off the inaugural Minneapolis Innovation Awards, where a committee of top journalists will award the top pontoon boats, aluminum freshwater fishing boats and fiberglass freshwater fishing boats, making the show the place to be for the latest and greatest in boating technology. 
Show goers will love the new lakeshore lifestyle exhibit as well as fan favorites returning to the 2018 show like the Antique & Classic Boat display, with a beautiful array of vessels from times gone by, and Fred’s Shed DIY & Interactive Learning Center offering popular boating DIY seminars. The Boating Skills Virtual Trainer will also be available again for attendees to boost their nautical knowledge hands-on.
