TRADE SHOWS ARE BACK IN ATLANTIC CANADA AND SO IS THE HALIFAX BOAT SHOW!

Halifax Boat Show 2021

Nov 10, 2020

Master Promotions is thrilled to announce that the Halifax Boat Show will return for its scheduled 2021 date at the Halifax Exhibition Centre. After working diligently with the Province of Nova Scotia, the Chief Medical Officer, Boating Atlantic and the facility, new safety measures have been put in place that will allow the show to return February 4-7, 2021.  
 
We are grateful to our fellow Atlantic Canadians for abiding by the guidelines that the government and health officials set out for us. The Atlantic Bubble has been a huge success and we couldn’t be more excited that we’ll be able to once again hold localized events – even if they look a bit different than what we’re used to.
 
The 2021 edition of the show will still welcome many of the same dealers that visitors have come to expect, and will showcase hundreds of boats on site, plus boating lifestyle products and services that the event traditionally offers. Our event partners at Boating Atlantic, their members and dealers are excited to showcase their 2021 line-up in February as they anticipate big demand once again this spring.
 
All exhibitors and show visitors will be from the Atlantic Provinces only; anyone who has travelled outside the Atlantic Bubble within 14 days of the show will not be permitted to attend. During the event, one “bubbled group” at a time will be allowed aboard each boat to view, with frequent sanitization of high-touch surfaces such as gunnels, steering wheels, seats, tables, etc.  
 
Additional safety measures will include:  
 
• Mandatory masks in all locations inside the building, except while eating or drinking in the seated restaurant area.
• Directional aisles and social distancing measures, as well as lots of signage to help attendees navigate.
• Additional staff onsite to help with traffic flow, monitor social distancing, and answer questions.
• Online ticketing to facilitate contact tracing and minimize congestion at the entrance.
• Enhanced cleaning protocols and easy-to-access sanitization stations located throughout the building.
 
We are confident that people are ready to return to face-to-face events – especially for sports and recreation equipment like boats and marine products, which saw skyrocketing sales last summer. This trend is expected to continue into the summer of 2021, with boating being a fantastic recreational alternative for families.
