We are pleased to announce that exhibitor registration is now open for The BC Boat Show (formerly the Victoria Inner Harbour Boat Show). Vancouver Island’s signature and largest in-water boat show will take place at Port Sidney Marina May 03–06, 2018 in Sidney, BC.

The BC Boat Show draws several thousand visitors every year. Your presence as an exhibitor affords a unique opportunity to present your company at the leading edge of this dynamic industry. Previous exhibitors have reported increasing numbers of qualified prospects and potential buyers at the show each year – just one of the reasons the event is always a sell out for in-water and land-based exhibitors. A professionally managed marketing campaign has been tailored to your target audience and our new venue is already drawing inquiries from a higher than usual number of interested parties.

This year’s event will be more than a boat show – more like a festival for all to enjoy. The Town of Sidney, local businesses and associations are enthusiastic about the show’s return and have extended a very warm welcome. Activities, displays and events will take place both in and around Port Sidney Marina. Dry land exhibition space will be on a tented barge right in the Marina and we will be featuring a floating food and beverage garden. We are also very pleased to report that the Mill Bay Marine Group will be the Presenting Sponsor for the 2018 BC Boat Show.
