Ottawa Boat ShowThe ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses to pivot and offer their services in unique and alternative ways. The 2021 edition of the Ottawa Boat Show – which has been postponed to the winter of 2022 – has moved to an online platform, designed to connect regular event attendees with the show’s exhibitors in a new way.
 
The Ottawa Boat Show Digital Marketplace is now available as part of the show’s website. Those who would have attended the show in-person can search the platform by company name, or filter by category. Exhibitor listings include detailed company information, photos, videos, product highlights, and any special offers or promotions they choose to feature. Seminars will also be released throughout the month. Users can easily connect by clicking email, website, and social media buttons.
 
“The decision to postpone to 2022 was not made hastily, but out of necessity,” said Show Manager Scott Sprague. “It’s important to us to help maintain a strong connection among show participants and annual Ottawa Boat Show visitors. We know both our exhibitors and attendees rely on face-to-face events to network and advance business opportunities and we hope that our new Digital Marketplace will facilitate that during this unpredictable time.”
 
The Digital Marketplace will be available for a limited time– from Monday, February 15 through Friday, March 19. This represents a significantly expanded timeframe from the typical four-day event, and lets users take their time to easily browse through the exhibitor database from the safety of their own home. The platform features a variety of exhibitor categories including Aluminum Fish, Bowrider, Clubs-Marina, Outboard Engine, Parts & Accessories, Service, Sport fish, and many more.
 
Would-be show visitors are also encouraged to visit the Ottawa Boat Show website to sign-up for email updates with the most current information as well as an opportunity to win door prizes and other giveaways.
