Progressive Insurance has officially cancelled their San Francisco Boat Show for 2016. Originally scheduled January 15-18 and then rescheduled for April 29-May 1, the show organizers cited that weather issues caused by El Nino are to blame.

Unfortunately, the move itself is the biggest reason for the cancellation. The logistics and challenges for both the show organizers as well as the attendees and exhibitors proved to great. Wanting to maintain an extraordinary event legacy and give all in attendance the boat show that they expect, organizers felt that although it was possible, the event would fail to live up to their standards and was therefore unacceptable.

Dave Geoffroy, director of the San Francisco Boat Show said, “We are certainly disappointed and apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. In the meantime, we will continue supporting the marine industry year-round in Northern California as we work together to ensure a thriving recreational boating community throughout the region.”
