Exhibit Sales


The Digital Marketplace will provide you with an opportunity to extend your marketing reach after the live show is complete. It includes a listing for each exhibitor – with contact information and the ability for you to add additional information like photos, videos, product highlights, and more.

How does this work? The Digital Marketplace will be advertised through our social media channels, as well as through direct email communications to our dedicated list of commercial fishing professionals. Our audience marketing campaign will begin upon completion of the live show and will run for a two-week period after the live show concludes.

You’ll receive a BASIC listing for the Digital Marketplace as part of your exhibit package, which includes:

• Company name and logo
• Links to your website & social media accounts (if applicable)
• Web form for leads (which will be emailed directly to you)

Plus, you’ll have the ability to log in and make changes to the following:

• Company description
• Product highlights and deals & specials
• One YouTube video link
• Up to four images (jpg, png, gif files only)
• Captions for your images


As a sponsor you will be able to take advantage of our engaged social media and email audiences after the conclusion of the live show. This will also give your brand the opportunity to convert any leads from the show and continue to engage with the boating community.

In addition to what’s included in the basic listing, the $500 sponsorship gets you:

• Prime placement as a sponsor at the top of the Digital Marketplace
• A social media shoutout with your company’s Facebook page tagged, a photo or video, 100-200 words of text, and a link to your listing.
• An email blast shoutout with a photo or video, up to 100 words of text, and a link to your listing.
• The ability to add a large-scale feature video at the top of your listing, plus additional YouTube links (up to 8 total)
