Nautisme Québec Faced with the drastic rise of COVID-19 cases in recent days, the Alliance de l’industrie nautique du Québec - Nautisme Québec deems it preferable to cancel the presentation of the Montreal International Boat Show which was to be held from February 10 to 13, 2022, at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.

“This is a difficult decision we’re taking. Given the fact that pleasure boating is booming, the Show would undoubtedly have been the event “par excellence” for the public to discover new models, new technologies and innovations in the boating sector”, says Marc-André Loyer, chair of the Alliance de l’industrie nautique du Québec. “In addition, the Show offers boaters a great opportunity to perfect their knowledge of navigation and boating safety by attending the many conferences on our activities program. It is also an event where they can learn all about boating from several sailing and boating schools, as well as government agencies and police forces.”

We were confident that our flagship event would take place this year and it is with a heavy heart that we have to cancel for a second year in a row, adds M. Loyer. However, Nautisme Québec always has the needs of boaters at heart and understands that it is important for them to keep in touch with manufacturers, dealers, and boating supplies businesses. Over the next few weeks, Nautisme Québec will offer its corporate members various solutions to establish links with boaters in the months leading to the next boating season.

Nautisme Québec would like to thank the exhibitors, the Palais des congrès de Montréal and D.E.E. Global for their precious collaboration as well as its partners AVIVA and Desjardins.

Nautisme Québec is preparing for summer 2022 now!
