The 2017 edition of the Moncton Boat Show set a record for attendance, show organizers said Wednesday.
The Moncton Boat Show, which took place March 31 through April 2, was co-located with the New Brunswick Sportsmen’s Show and Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum at the Moncton Coliseum Complex in Moncton, New Brunswick. Just over 10,000 combined visitors were in attendance over the three days of the event.
“This is the third year in a row that we’ve set records with the show’s attendance,” said Show Manager Scott Sprague. “The numbers have been consistently up and we’re happy to see solid crowds and people shopping and taking in everything these events have to offer.”
According to exhibitors, both the quantity and the quality of show visitors made this year’s show a success:
“Thanks to the great weather and large crowds this year, the Quartermaster team had a fantastic show. Big thank you to Master Promotions for a great show!” said Jason Craig, Quartermaster Marine.
“The 2017 Moncton Boat Show was a pleasant surprise for The Binnacle. The customers were well educated, and prepared to buy with strong sales increases felt,” said Chris Shaw, The Binnacle.
The Moncton Boat Show is scheduled to return in spring 2018.
