Message From The Editor

Boat Show season is off to a great start!

Clearly 2017 is starting off with positive momentum! The Vancouver International Boat Show reported strong attendance and the Toronto show posted a 10% attendance increase over the previous year. That is very encouraging and we were on site virtually the entire time watching as even the smallest displays attracted interested show goers.

This week, on February 9th, the boat shows open in Calgary and Halifax. Let's hope that the positive trends continue.

We will be at the Miami Boat Show from February 15 to 19 and we anticipate that the business will also be good there. Plus, the NMMA promises much better point to point transportation from Virginia Key where the main displays are to Strictly Sail and around the primary show hotels. We'll report on that on our return.

See you at the shows!

Andy Adams,
Editor @BoatIndCan
