FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the world's largest in-water International boat show, and QuintEvents, America's leading major-event travel, hospitality and ticket package provider, have announced a multi-year partnership to develop the first-ever luxury experience program for marine and boating enthusiasts. The new offering, branded VIP Boat Show Experiences, will launch November 5-7, in the 'Yachting Capital of the World.'

"We wanted a proven partner that could elevate the boat show experience, meeting the expectations of the clients that QuintEvents already excels at servicing at other premier events," says Phil Purcell, Executive Director of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida.

Known for its stunning showcase reveals and exhibits in marine, aero and auto industries, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show joins the Super Bowl, Kentucky Derby®, Formula 1™ and Barrett-Jackson as a pinnacle lifestyle event and show-stopper on the QuintEvents roster.

Official Ticket Packages to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show are your only way to access a complimentary valet service in front of the Windward Club, the new all-inclusive luxury hospitality venue at the heart of the show.

This climate-controlled oasis will make its inaugural debut at 10am on primetime Thursday, Nov. 5, at the centrally-located Swimming Hall of Fame. The doors remain open to VIP guests until 7pm through Saturday for the convenience of private dining, gourmet food buffets, premium open bar and special showcases.

The Windward Club is also the perfect platform to network, close business or simply share the excitement of this international boating event. The club's scheduling service is the key feature to this offering, with a dedicated concierge on-hand reserving private, guided yacht tours Thursday – Saturday on behalf of VIP guests, so that they may enjoy the show's amenities at their own pace.

"Boating is a lifestyle, and we are filling a void that has been expressed at boat shows for many years," explains QuintEvents' C.E.O. Brian Learst.  "We couldn't be more excited about this new partnership in an industry that is growing so quickly worldwide."

The experience offers boating enthusiasts, foreign dignitaries, and Hollywood's and sports' greatest stars access to all of the various events in and around the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center show location, with the added benefit of a relaxed atmosphere at the Windward Club.

Manufacturers and exhibitors are equally as enthusiastic for the opportunity to recapture the attention of their clientele, reaching out with this new opportunity, as well as benefiting from a fresh outlet to provide an introduction to their brand and lifestyle philosophy.

With options for Thursday, Friday and/or Saturday, guests can customize their Official Fort Lauderdale Boat Show Ticket Package to fit specific needs and budgets. VIP packages start at just $399 and are available through Official partner, QuintEvents' website, or by calling 1-866-643-7699.

The VIP Boat Show Experiences program is set to launch a new website in the fall at, where additional program benefits and access will be revealed for future shows. Manufacturers and exhibitors are encouraged to visit this site or email to take part in the new offerings for the upcoming years.
