Exhibit Space For BC Boat and Sportsmen's Show Nearly Sold Out

Show Manager Les Trendall reports that 95 percent of bulk space and more than 80 percent of booth space for the 20th annual BC Boat and Sportsmen's Show, to be held from March 4 to 6 at Tradex in Abbotsford, BC, is now sold out.

The event, held in conjunction with the BC Hunting Show, featured 221 exhibitors in 2010, who occupied more than 130,000 square feet of exhibit space. Gate attendance was announced at more than 30,000 people. Show attendees enjoyed more than 60 free seminars, including appearances by fishing expert Brian Chan and Dave Mercer, host of television's Facts of Fishing program. By the end of the three-day event, more than $20,000 in prizes were given away to people who attended the show.
