The producer of the Miami International Boat Show is sticking with the Miami Beach Convention Center, even though the building will be undergoing renovations over the next several years.

The boat show is also looing for other locations in Miami and Miami Beach to accommodate parts of the show that will need to leave the convention center, a spokesperson for the National Marine Manufacturers Association, which produces the annual show, told the Miami Herald.

“Creating a new and improved Miami Beach Convention Center means we have an opportunity to plan for a new and improved Miami International Boat Show,” show manager Cathy Rick-Joule said in a statement. “We have a lot of exciting options as to how we’ll layout the boat show in 2016 and 2017 and that’s a good place to be.”

The $500 million renovation project will kick off in December of 2015 and last two years. [Miami Herald] Christopher Cameron
