Dealers Arrive in Kelowna For Campion Dealer Meeting

Campion Marine dealers from Alaska, Europe, South Korea, Russia and across Canada have begun arriving in Kelowna, BC for the 39th annual Campion Marine dealer meeting, once again hosted at the Delta Grand Okanagan hotel  through August 27.

Crews today installed a new Chase 550 outboard model atop a decorative stand in the Delta Grand Okanagan's main entrance fountain. The Chase 550 outboard (displayed with an Evinrude ETEC 175) is one of three new boats the company will introduce for model year 2013. In all, Campion will show more than different 25 models in the water at the Grand Okanagan's lagoon for the Sunday evening cocktail reception, representing the company's Chase, Explorer, Allante, Svfara and Infinyte lines.

Campion President, Brock Elliott, treated early arrivals, including representatives from Moscow, Russia-based dealer Admiral Group, to a tour of the Campion production facilities in Kelowna. "We are excited to welcome our dealers for our 39th annual dealer meeting,' said Elliott. "We have some exciting new models to show, as well as upgrades and improvements to some existing boats. As a family-owned business with dealers in more than 30 countries around the world, we're moving forward and delivering products that consumers want.'
