Come celebrate Family Day at the Vancouver International Boat Show, Western Canada’s premier Boat Show, early February.

Embracing BC’s new statutory holiday (Family Day), to be held the second Monday of February, the 2013 Vancouver International Boat Show will run from Thursday February 7 through Monday, February 11. Boat fans and novices will be able to explore the latest and greatest boats and marine products showcased by more than 250 exhibitors at Western Canada’s premiere boat show.

Show Director Linda Waddell says the decision to incorporate the inaugural BC Family Day Holiday – by shifting from the traditional Wednesday through Sunday boat show pattern to Thursday through Monday – was easy. “The Vancouver International Boat Show has always focused on providing an experience the entire family can enjoy. Parents and children can get up close to a wide range of boats and see which boats best suit their family; they can even enjoy a free boat ride at Granville Island. To be able to hold the 2013 Show on BC’s first Family Day is incredibly exciting for our industry.”
The Vancouver International Boat Show is owned by the British Columbia Marine Trades Association (BCMTA), and produced by Boat Shows Canada.
