Virtual Participation Exceeding Expectations!
Happy Friday Evening – What A Week!

All Exhibitors from the 2020 Show have received an email from one of the Canadian Boat Shows team members within the past 4 days, including the information and application packages for the Virtual Show! This is in addition to the newsletter with the same information sent last Friday (Dec 4).

The feedback and applications have surpassed expectations! Over 60 Exhibitors have already upgraded from a complimentary listing to a Virtual space in the 2021 Show! The enthusiasm and response has been fantastic. We’re looking forward to continuing to answer questions and work together in preparation for your spaces and show content, in this new environment for connecting you with potential customers.

Clarification regarding Deadline: There is no deadline to participate in any of the packages, you can decide at any time! It appears there may be some confusion regarding the reference to a December 11 deadline for Virtual #1. The time sensitivity message was specific to us seeking 25 exhibitors for inclusion in providing input and eventually testing, for a sales tools/resource benefit extension within the platform. And these participating companies are required to have Virtual #1 to be a Test-Pilot exhibitor. We apologize for the confusion! There is no deadline to participate as a Virtual #1 Exhibitor, or any of the Virtual Space Packages. The Extra Opportunities and Sponsorships are subject to availability.

As this is new for everyone and we want to answer more questions faster, we will be holding an Orientation Webinar on Tuesday, December 15, 2-3pm.
Virtual Platform Orientation Webinar
You are invited to Join us!
Orientation Webinar
Tuesday, December 15th, 2-3pm EST

This informative orientation webinar is designed to answer exhibitor questions, walk through the virtual platform and explain how it works, what it will look like and highlight the benefits to exhibitors and your customers.

The intent is not to teach you "how" to build your booth. That information will come early next week in the next newsletter.

Resources & Tools
As you get ready to design your virtual space and maximize your time in front of your customers, you may find you need some additional resources that you don't have internally.

In the next newsletter we will provide you with a list of resources that you may want to consider for help as you build your virtual space.

The list will include such resources as video production, marketing & strategic help, video/camera equipment, 360/3D Tour, IT& Unity Platform assistance.
Call for Seminar Speakers
The virtual show will have a robust education seminar program with relevant topics to suit all levels and types of boaters.
