Not just a ‘new’ boats show, the Port Credit In-Water Boat Show has always featured a healthy percentage of used power and sail boats. The show is well timed at the end of August (24-26th), this show is a great place to off load any unsold 2012 product.

Show costs are extremely affordable.  Dock space begins at $300 for a 25’ slip to $650 for a dock that can easily accommodate boats up to 50’.   There is room on the hard for bulk boat displays beginning at 1,000 feet for $1.50 per square foot. Booth space begins at $350 for a 10X10 space.  Local motels and eateries are close at hand, or exhibitors can stay on their boats.  The Port Credit Harbour Marina is a full-service marina with full changing facilities.  And there are numerous other show support services including free parking, tables and chairs, canopies (at an additional cost), hydro and internet access available on request.

But the show is not just about boats.  There are numerous boat-related land displays of marine products and services.  There is the ever popular seminar tent featuring speakers on cruising, hands-on-learning and safety.  And unlike any other boat show, the Port Credit Boat Show has a marine consignment tent.  Boaters bring their ‘gently used’ product for sale at the show – all proceeds go to charity.

An aggressive and extensive advertising and promotion campaign has been set into motion beginning May, 2012. It will encompass, radio, print and internet advertising. Our internet reach will include social media tools such as Facebook; Twitter; free internet calendar sites and the Port Credit Boat Show blog – where show features and exhibitors are highlighted.
