The Broward County Commission agreed on Thursday to give the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show clearance to take place, provided organizers add some safety measures to its extensive safety plan.

The five-day event — slated for Oct. 28-Nov. 1 — will move forward with Informa Markets’ comprehensive AllSecure health and safety standards in place that prioritizes the safety of all attendees, exhibitors, crew members and staff.

Commissioners and city and county officials wanted show owners and organizers to also commit to a zero-tolerance approach to those who potentially ignore safety precautions or rules at the show, and ensure that those waiting to enter the show don’t gather too closely.

“I think we need to reduce number of attendees to account for square footage that is not accessible to public,” said Commissioner Tim Ryan during the meeting. “We’re going to be at capacity on Saturday and Sunday by noon, we want to make sure people aren’t queuing up.”
