Event Details

To commemorate Boating BC’s 60th Anniversary, join us at the 2017 Boating BC Conference presented by Mercury Marine, where we'll celebrate 60 Years of Boating in BC. The recreational boating industry has overcome obstacles and grown tremendously by working together as a united group and adapting to changing business landscapes. Longevity is the name of the game as we explore topics including succession planning, selling to new audiences, how to continually innovate our businesses, and industry trends and updates.

This is the premier event for networking with current and new colleagues, learning from business and industry experts, 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.

Fabulous conference! I leave loving this industry just a little bit more. Congratulations for strengthening this great industry! – 2016 Conference Attendee
