The 2019 Editions will include enhanced digital offerings including video linkages, animated ads and special or feature ad placements along with and increased market penetration of over 100,000 recipients prior to the events.

“We are thrilled to be once again working with Canadian Boat shows again and our team is excited to be working and developing the enhanced features for this year’s edition. I am thrilled too, that Judy Richardson will be heading up our sales effort again this year along side her colleagues at Ad Astra” said John Kerr President.

The printed version of the guides at the front entrances to the shows, but our ability to reach attendees prior to both shows digitally will help boaters plan and research.

The Digital Version will easily link boaters to sites, related content and information to allow easy reference and review and all its features and easily accessed by any mobile device.  Powered by the same technology used by Canadian Yachting the digital version will provide advertisers a solid set of reports and metrics on their ad performance.
