Plan Now For 20th Annual Port Credit Boat Show


Now celebrating its 20th year, the Port Credit In-Water Boat Show continues to attract an ever increasing enthusiastic audience of seasoned and novice boaters. Companies planning to exhibit at this summer's anniversary event should begin planning now.

Hosted at Port Credit Harbour Marina in Mississauga, ON, the Port Credit In-Water Boat Show is strategically located in the heart of Lake Ontario boat country. Not just a 'new' boats show, the Port Credit In-Water Boat Show has always featured a healthy percentage of used power and sail boats. Well timed at the end of August (27-29th), the show is a great place to clear remaining inventory.

Dock space begins at $300 for a 25-foot slip to $600 for a dock that can easily accommodate boats up to 50 feet.   There is room on the hard for bulk boat displays beginning at 1,000 feet for $2.00 per square foot. Booth space begins at $300 for a 10X10 space.  Local motels and eateries are close at hand, or exhibitors can stay on their boats.  The Port Credit Harbour Marina is a full-service marina with full changing facilities.  And there are numerous other show support services including free parking, tables and chairs, canopies (installation included), hydro and internet access available on request.

This year's show will also feature the full array of dockside displays featuring marine products and services, and the seminar tent featuring speakers on cruising, hands-on-learning and safety.  And unlike any other boat show, the Port Credit Boat Show has a marine consignment tent.  Boaters bring their 'gently used' product for sale at the show – all proceeds go to charity.

An aggressive and extensive advertising and promotion campaign has been set into motion beginning May, 2010. It will encompass TV, radio, print and internet advertising. Our internet reach will include social media tools such as Facebook; Twitter; free internet calendar sites and the Port Credit Boat Show blog – where show features and exhibitors are highlighted.   

The Port Credit In-Water Boat Show has a 20 year history of successfully selling boats.  Dock space is nearly half sold. For more information please contact Heather Robertson by  phone, at 416-892-9700, by email at  heather.s.robertson@gmail.com or online at www.portcreditboatshow.ca.
