Halifax International Boat Show Postponed to 2022


 For Immediate Release
Issued: February 26, 2021

Halifax, NS – This afternoon, Nova Scotia Premier Iain Rankin and Dr. Robert Strang, Chief Medical Officer of Health, announced tighter COVID-19 restrictions in the province. As of 8:00 am tomorrow, special events, including trade shows, are not permitted until at least the end of March, and residents are being asked to avoid non-essential travel in and out of HRM during this period.

As a result, Master Promotions Ltd., along with event partner Boating Atlantic, are announcing the postponement of the 2021 Halifax International Boat Show, which was scheduled for March 25-28, 2021. The next edition of the Halifax International Boat Show will take place in February 2022.

“We obviously spent a lot of time and effort to prepare for the 2021 show so we are disappointed we can’t proceed,” said Scott Sprague, Show Manager. “Nova Scotia has been doing very well when it comes to COVID-19 cases, and when the announcement came only weeks ago that restrictions would be eased to allow events, we were excited to be moving forward. But we also understand that the situation can suddenly shift, and we have to follow the recommendations laid out by government officials to keep everyone safe.”

Master Promotions Ltd. would like to thank the Halifax International Boat Show community for unwavering support from exhibitors, visitors, sponsors, and partners. “We continue to believe in the strength of face-to-face business and networking opportunities that shows provide,” added Sprague. “We look forward to hosting an in-person event again when it is safe to do so.”
