The Progressive® Insurance Chicago In-Water Boat Show® is Chicago's only in-water boat show. The four-day event, set on Chicago's magnificent lake front, showcases boats for every lifestyle, activity and budget, as well as the latest in marine gear, accessories and services. A wide variety of special features and family-friendly attractions offer something for everyone—from beginning boaters to seasoned sailors. 

31st Street Harbor is the newest and most anticipated addition to the Chicago harbor system. Completed in 2012 with slips for 1000 boats and a sustainable, eco-friendly design unrivaled in the industry, it provides an exceptional experience for boaters. All slips include electric, water, and complimentary cable TV and Internet access and can accommodate boats from 35'-70' in length. A naturally insulated parking garage and harbor house provide indoor winter boat storage in the off-season. A 63,000 sq. ft. green roof, rentable indoor community space, and brand new playground make 31st Street Harbor a welcome addition to the neighboring community.


The Progressive® Insurance Chicago In-Water Boat Show® is the Windy City’s premier boating lifestyle and sales event. Held at the beautiful 31st Street Harbor, it’s the ideal place to engage buyers - in a fun, consumer-friendly nautical environment where shoppers can see, touch and interact with your brand while enjoying the boating lifestyle.


People who attend the show are in the market for marine products and services. They come to see what’s new. They come to compare. They come to BUY. In short, exhibiting puts your products and services in front of consumers at the best time to make a sale - when they are LOOKING TO BUY!
