Newport Exhibition Group announced today that its 45th Annual Newport International Boat Show will take place September 17th through 20th, 2015 on the Newport waterfront along America’s Cup
Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island.
One of the largest
in-water boat shows in the country and the premier show in New England, the Newport
International Boat Show encompasses 13 acres and will host hundreds of exhibitors
from around the world with new powerboats and sailboats ranging from 16 to 100 feet,

participants will be selected to find the necklace on Sunday during the show
