BC Boat & Sportsmen's Show / BC Hunting Show 2013

The BC Boat & Sportsmen Show and the BC Hunting Show Enjoys ANOTHER Fantastic Year!

The Producers of the BC Boat and Sportsmen Show are pleased to report that a new attendance record was set for the 2013 edition with numbers being up 4% over 2012. This is a wonderful way to celebrate the 22nd anniversary of the BC Boat & Sportsmen Show and the tenth anniversary of the Hunting Show component.

  • 33,723 people made the trek to Tradex in Abbotsford and were not left disappointed.
  • Over 300 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 especially the Giant 50’ Fishing Tank Demo’s  presented by Toyota Trucks;  a highlight of all ages. David & Kevin Spenst from “The Hunting Chronicles” were 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 400 BRP ATV – Garry Higashi of Chilliwack, BC
  • The Canadian Princess Resort Fishing Weekend – Laura Bailey of Surrey, BC
