VIBS 2014In collaboration with Canadian Boat Shows, Inc., BCMTA administration and Board members have participated in meetings with VIBS exhibitors to review and select the best show dates for 2014. The need for such an in-depth review was based on this year’s survey results, which identified exhibitor concern with increased costs associated with the show being open on the statutory Family Day holiday, and a growing concern that even with modifications to the show’s schedule, any overlap with Family Day long weekend is a risk to the show’s attendance – the latter of which is also confirmed by consumer survey responses.
