BC Boat & Sportsmen's Show / BC Hunting Show 2012
The BC Boat & Sportsmen Show and the BC Hunting Show Enjoys ANOTHER Record Breaking Year!
The Producers of the BC Boat and Sportsmen Show are pleased to report that a new attendance record was set for the 2012 edition. This is a wonderful way to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the BC Boat & Sportsmen Show and the ninth anniversary of the Hunting Show component.
32,427 people made the trek to Tradex in Abbotsford and were not left disappointed.
Over 275 exhibitors and seminars were showcased and visitors were impressed with the awesome display of boating, fishing and hunting supplies that were showcased by exhibitors.
Seminars were well attended and entertaining and were enjoyed by visitors of all ages. Brian Chan’s Chironomid’s Hands on Seminars were sold out and Kevin Beasley from “Canada in the Rough” was very well received by the hunting crowd.
Exhibitors noted that traffic was steady and that the audience was there to shop and they did. Sales were brisk on the floor and many solid leads were gathered to follow up on during the next few months.
We would like to congratulate the following for winning some of our major prizes at the event.
Grand Prize - Can-am Outlander 400EFI BRP ATV – Teresa Spani of Squamish, BC
Twin Anchors Houseboat Vacation – Scott Langille of Maple Ridge, BC
Stoney Creek Fishing Adventure on Douglas Lake Ranch – Scott Ervin of Lynden, Washington, USA

Congratulations to all that won and attended the event and we will see you in 2013 on March 1-3, 2013 at Tradex for the 22nd edition of the BC Boat and Sportsmen Show and the 10th edition of the BC Hunting Show!
