Marine Industry Association

Marine Industry Day is a family-oriented event aimed at celebrating the region’s marine industry through a variety of fun, interactive experiences. The event features live music, food trucks that serve a variety of foods, children’s activities, numerous marine-related activities, water taxi tours, educational games and much more.


Marine Industry Day is an annual event that is non for profit held at Esplanade Park in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale. There will be all kinds of activities for adults and kids alike and many vendors that would be more than happy to talk about their role in the marine industry while giving out a bunch of goodies.

The event is organized and sponsored by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida with the support of Florida Yacht Brokers Association, the U.S. Superyacht Association, Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale, and Young Professionals in Yachting.

Marine Industry Day also builds awareness of our industry on local, state, and federal levels. The Marine Industry Day celebration is a gathering of Broward County’s diverse marine industry workforce and families who comprise the foundation of Broward’s number one economic driver.
