THE SHOW MUST GO ON – IN FEB!
The Boating Industry Association of Victoria have announced that the much anticipated Discover Boating Showcase will take place, however in the revised new year weekend of 19/20 February.
After careful consideration and with regard to many factors, this has been deemed the best way forward, and it gives the event its best chance of maximising exhibitor opportunities, attracting great crowds, and, overall event success.
The current uncertainty around government restrictions, as well as stock and supply issues influenced the decision, along with an exhibitor and sponsor preference for February.
The BIA believe this will give boating enthusiasts, both current and future, more time to rebuild their event appetite, as well as their confidence to attend. Similarly, exhibitors and BIAV will have a better runway to plan for and deliver an event to remember.
The Discover Boating Showcase will provide on-water demonstrations, the waterfront boat display, the boaters marketplace, bar, picnic area, entertainment, music, and the introduction of the BBV Welcome to Boating Hub.
BIAV have invited industry to book an exhibitor site and to support this great event concept. For businesses wishing to participate, they can book their site at SIGN UP. Alternatively industry are invited to call BIAV team members Steve, Katrina or Mary BIAV on (03) 8696 5600 with any questions.
The event has Major Showcase Sponsors Victorian Fisheries Authority, Better Boating Victoria, ICOM, with Light & Sound Solutions, VW Commercial Vehicles and Dunbier Marine Products supporting the event as Showcase Sponsors.
