Ottawa Show Rebranded


Aug 28, 2016

The Ottawa Boat and Sportsmen’s Show has a rich heritage in the Ottawa Region and the 2017 show marks the 42nd edition of this classic exposition of products for summer fun.

For most of its history the show was held at multiple small buildings at Landsdowne Park in downtown Ottawa with the last show at the venue occurring in 2011 as the City of Ottawa commenced a major re-development of the site.  The Show moved to the EY Centre near the airport.

Over the last five years the Ottawa Boat and Sportsmen’s Show has evolved primarily into a boat show and it is now time to embrace and confirm this evolution by renaming the 2017 show The Ottawa Boat Show.

The new boat show will also strive to add other relevant exhibitors showcasing products of interest to boaters and all people who enjoy the beautiful summer days in and around the Ottawa Region.

The 2017 show runs from February 23 – 26, 2017.
