Create Your Print & Digital Show Guide Listing Now!
This information will be used for the:
Printed "SHOW GUIDE" Listing,
Interactive Floorplan, Exhibitor & Product Search

The printed "SHOW GUIDE" will continue to have your company listed as it was historically in alphabetical order and Booth #. 

All exhibitors need to update their company listing info within Unity
(Exhibitor Online Platform). See link below.

In the past the product and services search categories were printed in the show guide however, there were limits and this medium was not as helpful to attendees. 

The new Interactive FloorplanExhibitor & Product Search will be enhanced to help attendees find products while at the show. There will also be signage with QR codes at the entrances and show floor to encourage attendees to use the search features to be directed to your spaces.

All exhibitors are strongly encouraged to focus on key words and descriptions when they enter their company listing so that consumers can easily find you and connect.

One of the features of the virtual platform are that attendee’s type in what they are looking for: products, services, brands, general phrases. Exhibitors that have those key words in their descriptions will appear for attendees to view.
Call For Speakers & Workshop Leaders
The 2023 seminar schedule is currently under development!!

Education continues to be a focus of the show and even more important now with the influx of new boaters on the waterways over the past two years.

Consumers coming to the show place high value on seminars and leave being better informed, educated, inspired and motivated.

If you would like to participate and present at one of the seminar stages in February, or know of a relevant topic or good speaker, please contact:

Cynthia Hare | Seminar Manager
chare@canadianboatshows.com | 905-951-4054 
Order Exhibitor Badges
All Exhibitors and Working Dealers require a name badge during the show dates.

Exhibitors and Working Dealers will have access to the show floor 2 hours prior to show opening, by showing their name badge at one of the show entrances. Once the show opens, a badge will be required to enter.

For security purposes, boat show badges are for the exclusive use of the person named on the face; they are not transferable. 
Sponsorship & Branding Opportunities
Use strategic branding, sponsorship and promotional opportunities to maximize exposure of your business to boat show attendees and exhibitors.

To discuss customizing a sponsorship package based on your marketing objectives and budget contact:

Other Important Deadlines & Quick Links
WARNING: Beware of Fraudulent Solicitations!
Unfortunately, fraudulent calls and emails do get sent to exhibitors with misleading information. See example.

These parties claim to represent the Vancouver International Boat Show

NOTE: They have no relationship with the Vancouver Boat Show. We ask that you remain cautious and do not enter into agreements or contracts, or release personal information – particularly credit card information – to any callers claiming to represent the Vancouver Boat Show.

These fraudulent attempts extend to HOTEL and TRAVEL solicitations.

The Vancouver Boat Show is not connected with them in any way (be vigilant).

Please feel free to contact our office at any time to confirm if a caller is an official show supplier or to report suspicious calls.
