The 4th Annual Marine Industry Day is open to anyone who is in the marine industry or anyone who would like to learn more about it. Marine Industry Day is an annual event that is non for profit held at Esplanade Park in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale. Families with children of all ages are encouraged to come join the fun. 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. There is no cost to attend this event.

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.
