Montreal Boat ShowMontreal Boat Show: Feb 5 to 8, 2015

The Quebec Marine Association (QMA) invites boating enthusiasts on February 5th-8th, 2015 at the 16th edition of the Montreal Boats and Water Sports’ Show. This year is once again marked by a most festive atmosphere, with an event that is expected to be more impressive in all aspects. The figures are enough to make your head spin: 275 exhibitors, more than 450 boats spread over an exhibition area of over 275,000 square feet which is 17 times the Bell Centre ice!

Boating in Quebec

Each year, 30,000 visitors walk the four floors of the Place Bonaventure to discover the trends of the next boating season. According to a survey conducted by the QMA in 2013, 52% of boaters between 26 and 50 years old, visit the Montreal Boat Show in order to buy a boat. Note that many exhibitors will offer significant discounts, which partly explains the popularity of the event. Another reason for this enthusiasm, all the major brands of boats and marine accessories return each year to the delight of shoppers. This year, twenty nautical activities will thus be presented to the public including: motor boats, sailboats, personal watercraft, fishing, marinas, water stations, sailing schools, etc.

Features

One of the event’s highlights this year is the Virtual Trainer Boating skills. Presented by the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron (CPS), this driving simulator allows visitors to test their skills in a variety of weather conditions. Equipped with the latest technology and its three screens, the simulator displays a panoramic vision, which allows you to be at the heart of the action and adopt the right moves in every situation. Those wishing to try it will go directly to the ECP booth (# 75, level 300).

As usual, the Montreal Boat Show will also host conferences focused on boating topics. Among the big names expected, Patrick Campeau, George Leblanc and Damian Foxall (winner of the 2012 Volvo Ocean race) will present to the public their experience and also give advices on boating.

Also, for the first time, the students from the École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) will unveil their Class-C catamaran project which is scheduled to  participate in the next World Cup in September 2015 in Geneva.
