ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Whether you’re dreaming of a day on the lake in a speedboat or a year at sea in a luxurious houseboat, there’s something for every skipper at an annual event which turns a land-locked Atlanta venue into a flashy, eye-popping marina!
The 2019 Progressive Insurance Atlanta Boat Show returns to the Georgia World Congress Center (Hall A) from Thursday, January 10th through Sunday, January 13th, bringing 600 of the hottest boats on the market under one roof. The annual event, which is celebrating its 57th year, brings together boats of all shapes, sizes, and price points, giving prospective buyers a chance to do some comparative shopping without ever leaving the Georgia World Congress Center.
Along with boats, the event features vendors selling marine accessories, more than a hundred seminars covering boating and fishing, and a new “Touch-a-Boat” tour for kids, during which they’ll collect stamps to go inside their Boat Show passport.
Hours for the 2019 Progressive Insurance Atlanta Boat Show are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $15 for guests ages 13 and older, and free for youth 12 and under. The Georgia World Congress Center is located at 285 Andrew Young International Boulevard in downtown Atlanta.
