Optimism at Western Marine Dealer Show


Marine dealers from across Canada are gathered at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel for Western Marine and Transat Marine's  annual dealer trade show, continuing through Monday, October 18.

Products from more than 200 manufacturers are on display at more than 100 different booths, including more than 60 new SKUs for 2011.

“This is the third year for us at the Sheraton, and our 11th year overall,” says Alan Stovell, Western Marine VP/Managing Partner. “The dealers have an opportunity to take advantage of special pricing incentives they can't get at any other time, and with our acquisition of Transat Marine a couple of years ago, we're able to offer exclusive lines. Overall, things are a lot more positive this year, and I think that's reflected by the number of new products on display.”

Full details on the Western and Transat Marine Trade Show will appear in the November/December issue of Boating Business magazine, on press this week. To ensure you receive your copy, click here – subscriptions are complementary for the marine trade.
