The long-awaited return of an in-person Vancouver International Boat Show has been confirmed for February 1-5, 2023.

The 60th edition of the event will provide attendees with a first look at the 2023 boating season’s premiere boat models and accessories, and include presentations and workshops led by boating experts.

“The pandemic presented a number of significant challenges, but if there is a silver lining, it’s how these circumstances have given us a better appreciation for the opportunity to come together and share our common love of everything associated with boating,” said Vancouver International Boat Show Manager, Amanda Henschell. “The return of this signature event connects visitors with salespeople and product specialists who will be representing all of the major brands, providing a perfect opportunity for experienced and novice boaters to purchase anything they need in order to get out on BC’s incredible waters.”

This year’s Show will once again be hosted in two locations, indoors at BC Place and the floating show at Granville Island. Free shuttle buses and water ferries will also be operating continuously between the two venues.
