Produced by the same team as WorkBoat Magazine and WorkBoat.com, the International WorkBoat Show is a trade-only conference and expo for commercial vessel owners, operators and builders as well as the vendors and suppliers that serve them. WorkBoat is part of the Diversified Communications portfolio of commercial marine events, publications and digital products. The WorkBoat brand has been connecting qualified buyers with leading suppliers for more than 70 years.

Held every year in New Orleans, the show attracts over 900 exhibiting companies that are displaying thousands of products and services across all categories. In addition to the biggest and most influential brands in the maritime industry, you will find a myriad of new companies across the show floor. Exhibiting at the International WorkBoat Show is the most efficient way to hear what your commercial marine customers need from you right now, make genuine connections, showcase your latest products or services, and get meaningful feedback from purchasers and end users alike.
Don’t miss your chance to connect with and serve this powerful audience. International WorkBoat Show attendees spend millions of dollars annually on marine equipment and services, and together represent $2.3 billion in buying power. Of last year’s attendees, 89% discovered new products or vendors at the show and 69% planned to make a purchase as a result of attending. As attendees have been quoted saying, “everyone in the marine industry is here.” This includes the industry’s most innovative suppliers and vendors, who for three days transform the Morial Convention Center exhibition hall into a small city of diverse trade show booths, exhibits, and product demonstrations.
The International WorkBoat Show is a unique opportunity to come together with like-minded individuals to network, receive industry updates, and learn about the latest products on display throughout the exhibit hall. Each year, over 15,000 members of the commercial marine industry return to network, discover new products, and learn about evolving issues affecting the industry – from expert keynote speakers, innovative exhibitors, and most importantly, each other. From productive days on the show floor to nights with colleagues, new friends and great food, there is nothing quite like it.
