The Toronto International Boat Show celebrates its 60th anniversary from January 12 -21, 2018 at the Enercare Centre, in the CNE grounds on Toronto’s waterfront. Since 1959, the Toronto Boat Show has grown exponentially to become North America’s largest indoor boat show featuring world-class displays, 550 exhibitors, and more than 1,200 boats from 6ft to 51ft for visitors to see and board. Exhibitor spaces are sold-out with all the major boat dealers from across Canada getting ready to showcase the latest boat innovations alongside manufacturer representatives who will be on hand to provide knowledgeable product information. Visitors also can shop among thousands of marine accessories at the Mariners Marketplace and get summer-ready with outdoor gear, toys, and décor at Cottage Country.
In addition to new products (more than any other show in Canada), boaters can look forward to an exciting new slate of programming and educational seminars. Talk one-on-one with how-to experts at The Boathouse, discover new boating destinations to plan your next trip, or register for a hands-on workshop on boat maintenance. The Toronto Boat Show has a feature for every type of boater to enjoy from SailFest to the Great Canadian Fish Tank and Antique & Classic Boats. There’s also plenty of programming on the presentation stages with more than 250 seminars and workshops on a variety of topics.
New this year, the Toronto International Boat Show is pleased to host Mercy Ships Canada, an international charity that operates the largest floating hospital ship in the world, providing free health care to those without access in the developing world. Come meet and be inspired by some of the doctors, nurses, crew, and volunteers who are making a difference. The indoor Lake will also feature new water trends such as the debut of Stand Up Paddle Polo and Kayak Polo; and celebrity guest, Baywatch and Survivor reality star Brenda Lowe, will be demonstrating stand up paddle boarding and meeting fans on opening weekend.
The Toronto Boat Show’s Preview Day VIP Experience starts at 2pm on Friday, January 12, with proceeds benefiting the show’s partner boating charities. FREE parking will be included with Preview Day tickets and offered every weekday evening after 4pm!
