VIBS Exhibitors – don’t miss the Early Bird Rate!!


Sept 1, 2023

Vancouver International Boat Show exhibitors are reminded to please return their Space Application and deposit by September 15th to receive the Early Bird rate and to secure your space renewal!

If you were a 2023 show exhibitor then you would have received your space renewal application for the 2024 show in July.

If you have not received your application, please contact the show management right away!

The Early Bird Rate applies to the 2023 exhibitors, (as well as exhibitors who were not in the 2023 show and prospective new exhibitors). Any exhibitor who wants to receive the Early Bird rate for the 2024 show will be required to return their signed application and 50% deposit by September 15th.

After September 15th, the regular rates will apply, and the show will begin working on the layout and re-allocating non-renewed spaces.

We understand this is a busy time of year. Please know that we are receiving space requests from returning and new exhibitors, therefore, it is imperative we know what all 2023 exhibitors plans are for this year so that your needs are not left out of our planning.

You can return your Application by email to Amanda Henschell, or call 604-882-8024 to discuss your space needs for the 2024 show.
