Rick HansenIt’s that time of year again – the 2015 Boating BC Conference presented by Mercury Marine is just around the corner and you won’t want miss it!

On November 24th and 25th members of the recreational boating industry in British Columbia will step away from their busy lives to learn, connect and share ideas. We’ve shaken things up this year and condensed the program to a day-and-a-half of presentations by our exceptional speakers (see below), meals and networking opportunities – all at a new location, the Pacific Gateway Hotel in Richmond, BC.

With a focus on ‘Learning to Lead’, this year’s conference will explore organizational, market and personal leadership - and how you can be more effective in your role and grow your business. Speakers include Mark Schwabero, President of Brunswick Corporation, Clint Mahlman, COO London Drugs and Marcus Sheridan, The Sales Lion. Full details of this year’s speaker line-up are included below.

Navis Marine Insurance is back to host the industry reception where you can connect with colleagues - and GE Capital will return with the latest economic trends and insights for the recreational marine industry.

Dinner on Tuesday, November 25th includes a special presentation by Rick Hansen – if you would like to share this evening of inspiration, guest tickets are available for dinner only.

As a member of Boating BC, you receive the preferred rate of $249 for the entire conference – and a subsidized room rate of $99 on November 23rd and 24th.

Further details about this year’s conference are below. We look forward to seeing you there!
