Marine industry to be showcased at Moncton trade show this January


October 29, 2019

Moncton, NB – Atlantic Canada’s all-encompassing commercial marine event, Fish Canada Workboat Canada, is charting its course for Moncton this January 24 & 25.

For those who make their living on, in, and around the water, along with businesses who provide the related products and services to keep Atlantic Canada’s marine industries running, the event takes over the Moncton Coliseum Complex as Canada’s largest commercial marine trade show. The two days provide a key opportunity for members of the commercial marine sector to connect with thousands of qualified buyers.

With Moncton as a central location to much of the surrounding coastal regions, Fish Canada Workboat Canada attracts people from the fishing, aquaculture, processing and workboat industries from throughout the Maritimes and Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula. The last edition, held in January 2018, was marked as the busiest in the event’s history. A record 6,659 visitors took to the show floor and exhibit space was expanded — and completely sold out.

“Booth spaces for this year are going quickly and already more than 85% of the floor has been sold,” said Shawn Murphy, Show Manager. “Our portfolio of fishing shows, including those in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador, have seen great success over the past few years. Exhibit sales are once again very strong with an even larger floor plan, so it seems there’s no slowing down for 2020. We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back to Moncton.”

Those interested in exhibiting at Fish Canada Workboat Canada are invited to visit the show website or contact the show manager.

Pre-registration allows visitors to save money (the price increases to $20.00 at the door) and fast-tracks their entrance to the show floor.
