The Progressive® Insurance Minneapolis Boat Show® Drops Anchor at the Minneapolis Convention Center

The 2020 Progressive® Insurance Minneapolis Boat Show® will drop anchor at the Minneapolis Convention Center January 23-26, 2020, providing a one-of-a-kind opportunity for guests to shop and see the latest and greatest boats and marine accessories and technology, swapping the winter blues for thoughts of summer fun. Minnesota is number one in boat ownership per capita, and the Minneapolis show is the longest running boat show in the region.
Attendees can peruse more than 700 boats, including pontoons, fishing boats, tow boats and cruisers, and enjoy annual favorites like the Antique & Classic Boat Display and Boating Skills Virtual Trainer, where you can set out on a simulated “boat trip” to practice boating skills. A new Lifestyle Feature will transport you to warmer days on the water, complete with cocktails, live music, food and fun.
