COVID Health Guidelines

COVID Health and Safety Protocol

Progressive® Insurance Minneapolis Boat Show®

We are committed to creating a safe, welcoming event for all our guests, exhibitors, and staff, following the City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Convention Center Health and Safety protocols during the show. Vaccination or test requirements go into effect on January 26 for ticketed events. See the latest updates here.

Face Masks

In accordance with the City of Minneapolis and CDC guidance, any individual who is over age two and able to medically tolerate a face covering is required to wear a mask at the Minneapolis Convention Center, regardless of vaccination status. 


If you have been diagnosed or confirmed to have COVID, display symptoms including cough, fever or runny nose, we ask that you refrain from attending. 

Contactless Ticketing 

To minimize close contact between staff and guests, all ticket sales will be online. Digital tickets will be scanned when you enter the show.

Contactless Exhibitor Registration

New contactless digital mobile exhibitor credentials.

Increased Sanitation 

Highly touched and common areas will be cleaned on a regular basis; hand sanitizing stations will be added throughout the convention center for attendees. 

New Floorplans 

New show floorplans will allow for more space to support social distancing and minimize crowd gathering. 

Follow Latest CDC, State and Local Guidelines 

As guidance evolves, we will monitor and update our practices to ensure the safest and enjoyable boat show experience possible.
