Every year the Toronto Boat Show has many new things to see and do. The world’s largest indoor lake will feature a variety of water-based entertainment options, plus a live-action interactive experience that lets visitors experience paddleboat rides complete with multiple opportunities to touch a drop of water.

The area is filled with exhibit space, action and outdoor theatres. It will showcase all the top international brands in the boating industry! The Toronto Boat Show runs for ten days from Friday, 20th January to Sunday, 29th January 2023 in Toronto.

About the Show

Over twelve hundred boats and hundreds of stalls featuring the latest in boats, from fishing boats to pontoons, engines, electronics, boating products, marine accessories, and services.

The show will also feature daily activities, including free boat rides, seminars, a Kids Boating Zone, a Kids Fishing Zone, boat handling demonstrations and the legendary BOATERexam.com® Great Canadian Fish Tank, all at the Enercare Centre, Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario.

COVID-19 Information

The news is good! Ontario is progressing to the final re-opening stage. This is an excellent opportunity for Shows, Live Events, and Indoor Gatherings. The easing of Covid-19 restrictions increases confidence about the current timing for distribution of renewal contracts for Exhibitors.

Shuttle Bus Update

As an alternate transportation mode, we recommend the bus as a highly budget-friendly option. The TTC bus route 509 runs every 10 – 15 minutes between the Westin Harbour Castle and Enercare Centre, costing as little as $3.25 for a one-way trip.

Estimated Turnout

  • 20000 Visitors
  • 300 Exhibitors

Preparation for Toronto International Boat Show 2023

This is the busiest time of the year! New boat owners are out in force, and boat show exhibitors are gearing up to open their doors to the public. There has never been a better time to buy or sell your boat!

The initial plan from organizers, CBSI (Canadian Boat Shows Inc.), was to wait until early September to relocate spaces, but their eagerness to start has changed the timing.

It is time to plan! Visit Toronto International Boat Show 2023, the largest exhibition in Canada, on January 20 – 29, 2023, at the Enercare Centre in Toronto.
