Boating BC Conference

November 23-25, 2020

Read More

Each November the recreational boating industry in British Columbia steps away from their busy lives to attend the annual Boating BC Conference. It’s an inspiring two days where people come to learn, connect and share ideas.

The program takes delegates through a rich program of the latest industry news and trends. Tangible takeaways will help grow recreational marine businesses in all sectors across our province.

It is the premier event for networking with current and new colleagues, and consistently creates an environment rich in camaraderie through shared activities, receptions and great entertainment. Our delegates tell us this is an exceptional experience — so it’s no surprise that each November, our industry feels just a little bit stronger and more united than the year before.

The 2020 Virtual Boating BC Conference presented by Mercury Marine will be held on November 23-25th . Register here.

There are many opportunities to sponsor the Boating BC Conference! Learn more about sponsorship and it’s benefits here and contact the Boating BC office at 604.238.7500 or info@boatingbc.ca.

The Indigenous tourism industry has risen to the many challenges faced this year. As we approach our Annual General Meeting via ZOOM on Wednesday, November 25, 2020 we reflect on how our connections to each other have been strengthened. Our theme this year is Pulling Together for Recovery.  We’ve been inspired by the resilience of the Indigenous tourism businesses. We know it’s been a different year and, as we look toward recovery for the next tourism season, pulling together as one will be key.
