atlantic caribbean blue marlin big game sport fishing tournament

Mark your calendars for February 14-18, 2013 to visit us in the Big Game Room (BGR) at the Miami International Boat Show. It's the largest "schooling up" of fishermen and the place to catch up with all your fishing friends. The Big Game Room is located on the second floor of the Miami Beach Convention Center, and it can be approached either by walking across the glass skywalk or simply entering through the Washington Avenue doors.

  • Visit Our Booth - click to enlarge photoThe ABMT was instrumental in the 2004 creation of the Big Game Room, and in appreciation of our efforts we were rewarded our large booth space by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA).

    The ABMT booth affords us the opportunity to meet with boat owners and captains who are interested in fishing our tournaments, and are in need of detailed information. We also meet with our sponsors and contributors and in between meetings - we are busy passing out 'ON THE EDGE' magazines, which are fresh off the press in time for the Miami show!

    Exhibits and Attractions found in the BGR - Three large display rooms and a wide corridor make up the area called the Big Game Room. In each of the rooms you'll find the vendors touting their wares and in the walking space outside you'll find even more! Walking into the center room you'll often see a large crowd is gathered around the 'Bait Rigging Station" where Capt. Tony Digiulian can be found sharing his knowledge on how to catch more fish!

    Everywhere you look there will be beautiful paintings by both the famous and the soon to be famous artists. The BGR is an art lover's paradise and a smorgasbord of color.

    You'll see more fish jumping in the BGR than in Biscayne Bay! If you're building a new home or a seafood restaurant, the place to find fishing art (at the right price) is in the BGR.

    Probably one of the best reasons for visiting the BGR is for the great tackle deals! The vendor's don't want to lug the stuff back to their warehouse and your ahead many dollars because of it! We see fishermen who have been waiting all year for the BGR - walking off with shopping bags full of tackle bargains!

    On the stage in the Big Game Room you'll hear the experts of the fishing industry speaking on a variety of subjects - the favorite for many is when the Miami Marlins Mermaids get up and do their cheerleading... suddenly the BGR gets crowded! There is something for everyone and we hope you will be there Feb. 14-18th.

    Attention Vendors, Boat Builders, Tackle Manufacturers and Artists - Display in the Big Game Room 2013. The Miami Boat Show is the largest in the world and is the place to be to get in front of the fishing, boating world. To arrange for booth space contact Joanne Zito of the NMMA. Tel. 954-441-3229.
