May 2-5, 2019
Port Sidney Marina
The BC Boat Show is hosted by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA) and has grown to become the largest in-the-water boat show on the west coast. The show is an opportunity for yacht brokers to display and sell boats for sale to a wide audience who can go on board all of the boats and discuss the many features with knowledgeable and professionally certified brokers. There are usually around 200 boats of all sizes in the water as well as many marine related business displays featuring everything from boat yard services, hardware, equipment, navigation electronics, clothing, etc. People attending the show over its four-day run can expect to spend many delightful hours touring the boats of their dreams, seeing the latest yachts both new and used, and witnessing many interesting demonstrations. Sales often occur right at the show, as the brokers are usually prepared to offer special pricing for an at-the-show sale.
Everyone is welcome and children are encouraged to attend with their parents.
Exhibitor Registration Now Open
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 02 – 05, 2019 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.
Once again The Town of Sidney, local businesses and associations have extended a very warm welcome. After last years’ very successful return to Sidney, more activities, displays and events, and a floating food and beverage garden will take place both in and around Port Sidney Marina. Dry land exhibition space will be in a large tented pavilion and we will be featuring more in-water display space than ever before.
We are also very pleased to welcome back the Mill Bay Marine Group as Presenting Sponsor for the 2019 BC Boat Show.
Please see below for pricing and details on how to book your exhibitor space. Early registration is highly recommended. We look forward to seeing you!
