Moncton, NB – The Moncton Boat and Sportsmen’s Show made a resounding return to the Moncton Coliseum this past weekend. March 24 through 26, thousands of outdoors people came out to explore the latest in the fishing, fly-tying, hunting and boating industries.

Exhibitors were also very quick to express their gratitude:
“The Quartermaster crew was glad to be back for the Moncton Boat and Sportsmen’s show. We had a great selection of new boats on display, and we had a successful show. Thank you to Master Promotions for putting on a great event.” – Jason Craig of Quartermaster Marine
“We really enjoyed our first experience as vendors at the Moncton Boat & Sportsmen Show. We brought a wide variety of tackle that could be used throughout the province of New Brunswick targeting many different species. It was a great opportunity to spread the word about Minnow Tackle Shop and what we have to offer. A lot of the attendees were happy to see our selection and excited to have a new tackle shop in NB. The show was very well organized, and we hope to make this an annual event.” – Amanda Metz of Minnow Tackle Shop
