Miami Boat Show and Strictly Sail

Any tips or suggestions for a first time boat show visitor? We're planning two days in February to visit the Miami Strictly Sail (at Bayside) - convention center (and the motor yacht part of the show, if time permits).

Why is the "Premier" day admission almost twice the cost over the rest of the days? Are there special events only on day one, not repeated during the rest of the show?

Thanks,
msl

I don't know why "Premier Day" costs more. The only thing I know of that's special is the Saturday evening Latitudes & Attitudes party. Free pizza and beer, the Eric Stone Band in concert, and lots of prizes. Doesn't cost anything to go to the party, but you do have to be in the boat show itself before it closes. Party starts at 6:00 and goes until 9:00.

Higher Prices

Done mainly to keep the crowds down and weed out tire kickers. Free tickets can usually be gotten from brokerage houses if you have a broker you are working with. It is actually worth going on "premier day" as the crowds are smaller and you can get more quality time with the vendors and manufacturers. It used to be called VIP day and was for trade and vendor invitations only. They found that they could charge us more money to get in on the first day so they fattened their bank accounts.
