Dedicated Facebook Account Added to Promote Virtual Show!
Historically, the boat show's social media properties were housed within the Boating BC channels. 

Due to the evolving online environment during the pandemic, and opportunities for promoting the Virtual Show, a dedicated Facebook account has been added to expand marketing the new event!

In addition to Boating BC's social channels promoting the show, there will also be an extensive advertising plan under the new Vancouver Boat show Facebook account.  

We would like to ask all exhibitors to 'Follow' or 'Like' the Vancouver Boat Show FACEBOOK PAGE [Click Here] and please share with your social networks.
