Master Promotions Ltd. is pleased to announce that they have purchased the Ottawa Boat Show from Canadian National Sportsmen’s Shows. This long established show held annually at Ottawa’s EY Centre is the largest boat show in the Ottawa region and features an impressive selection of boats as well as the gear and services that go with them. “This show blends well with Master Promotions Ltd.’s portfolio of marine events across Canada and we are looking forward to meeting and working with the Ottawa exhibitors in the near future and are excited to add this event to our national portfolio” says Master Promotions President, Wendell Howes. Peter Lockhart, President of Canadian National Sportsmen’s Shows commented “It’s the right time for us to pass this successful event over to a reputable, experienced and professional show producer and Master Promotions Ltd. was the obvious choice. With their extensive marine show portfolio and reputation across Canada we’re sure they are the right fit for the Ottawa Show”.
