What Can You Expect At Your Local Boat Show?

All boat shows are different (that's part of the excitement) but most offer some common elements.  For example, in addition to the newest boats and watercraft, your local boat show might also include:

  • Seminars - Topics range from water safety to fishing techniques and everything in between.  Many boat shows include the cost of seminars in with your admission price. Pay to get into the boat show and attend as many seminars as you want.  Check with your local show to see what their policy is.
  • Workshops - One of the best ways to learn is the "hands-on" way.  From outdrive repair and maintenance to maneuvering a trailer; many boat shows have several helpful workshops to choose from.
  • Safety - If you're looking for information or products, most boat shows can provide a wonderful array of boating safety products, services and literature.
  • Company Representatives - Your local boat show may very well host the representatives from boating manufacturers, equipment and environmental agencies.  It's always interesting to speak face to face with people who work directly for the companies we buy from.
  • Prizes and Freebies - Practically every boat show across the country has prize drawings.  Many of the exhibitors also offer boating-related freebies just for stopping by their booths.
