Planning Commences for Strictly Sail™ Shows in Chicago, Miami and Oakland
Exhibitor space applications were mailed in July for the nation’s
largest indoor “all-sail” show, Strictly Sail Chicago,
which sails into Navy Pier on Jan. 29-Feb. 1, 2009, and for Strictly
Sail Miami, the sailing component of “The World’s Greatest
Boat Show,” which runs Feb. 12-16, 2009 at Miamarina at Bayside.
Exhibitor space applications will be mailed
in October for Strictly Sail Pacific, the West
Coast’s only “all-sail” boat
show, which will be held from April 15-19,
2009 at the Bay area’s Jack London Square. Sail
America Executive Director Jonathan Banks and
NMMA’s Ben Wold and Kevin Murphy visited
the Bay Area in late August for a committee
meeting and to meet with the Port of Oakland
and Jack London Square Partners. Planning for
next year’s show is well underway and
the show team is working hard to secure additional
space to meet exhibitors’ requirements.
