NAUTISME QUEBEC CANCELS THE 2021 MONTREAL BOAT SHOW

 

Nautisme QuebecSince mid-march, the Alliance de l’industrie nautique du Québec - Nautisme Québec has been devoting time and energy in order to present its main annual event, the Montreal Boat Show. However, with the organizational deadlines that such an event requires, the progress of COVID-19 in the last few weeks and the uncertainty of its outcome in the next winter period, Nautisme Québec finds that it is wiser to cancel the Montreal Boat Show, which was scheduled from February 4 to the 7, 2021.

NMMA CANADA PROACTIVELY MOVES TO ADDRESS TARIFFS, LUXURY TAX THREATS TO THE INDUSTRY IN 2020/21 

NMMA CanadaDespite the successful season enjoyed by many boating businesses, there are risks looming on the horizon for the recreational boating industry. For example, this past August President Trump announced a 10% tariff on raw Canadian aluminum being imported into the United States. This move took the political and business world by surprise given the recent coming-into-force of USMCA/NAFTA 2.0.

As soon as rumours appeared about possible tariffs, Sara Anghel and NMMA President Frank Hugelmeyer co-wrote a letter to President Trump and Prime Minister Trudeau urging them to avoid another trade dispute.
