Boat show a boon

Re the May 28 story Miami Commission approves key Boat Show agreements: I am the owner of Frigibar Industries Inc., a small family-owned business located in the Little River area of Miami. We are one of the longest established manufacturers of marine freezers and refrigeration systems for boaters.

For the past 49 years, Frigibar has been an exhibitor at the Miami International Boat Show.

For more than 30 years, we have also been members of the National Marine Manufacturers Association. The Boat Show and our partnership with the NMMA have been essential for the survival and growth of our business.

As a business without a retail store location, the Boat Show is a valuable resource, and our best opportunity to have potential buyers see, feel and purchase our products.

I have many fond memories of Miami Marine Stadium Park. My family would often enjoy the amazing waterfront views when dining at the Rusty Pelican. I have attended Miami International Boat Show since childhoodand I look forward to supporting and participating in next year’s event.

Shuly Oletzky, president, Frigibar Industries, Inc., Miami
