WorkBoat's moving next year?


NEW ORLEANS - The final numbers are in for the International WorkBoat Show 2012: 1,100 exhibitors and 14,500 attendees, an increase of roughly 1,000 over last year. It's hard to believe anyone walking the show floor could have missed the increased activity and traffic over last year (a year when many thought the show was very busy).

Still, one rumor was buzzing around the show like no other: The WorkBoat Show is moving? Well, not location, just dates. For the first time in recent history, the show will now be before Thanksgiving. To get the exact particulars of the whys and whens, online editor Sam Pfeifle caught up with WorkBoat show director Bob Callahan on the show floor. For the full interview, watch the following video:

I presume that the October date is temporary (2013 only), because of reconstruction at the Morial Convention Center. Early October is usually a nice, sunny time in New Orleans, with such attractions as the Louisiana Seafood Festival. But it can be very hot; and prospective visitors should bone up on their hurricane drill; for the peak of the N Atlantic hurricane season falls in September and there can be quite a likelihood of a hurricane or at least an alert in early October.
