Canada’s largest outdoor adventure travel show is in Vancouver from March 8th to 9th, and GuideAdvisor is taking to the floor for the very first time. Held at the Vancouver Convention Centre, 20,000 adventure enthusiasts are expected to attend this year’s exhibition for seminars and demonstrations on the latest technology, training strategies, nutrition, destinations and more.
Our team is particularly excited about seeing guest speaker and Olympic medalist Adam van Koeverden talk about his adventures travelling around the world as a spring kayaker. We’ll also be stoked to see the Canoe & Kayak Zone at this year’s show: the latest equipment, clothing & accessories will be on display at the massive 30 x 50-foot Whitewater Demo Pool. And when we’re not fawning over the water sports, we’ll be checking out the Travel & Destinations Pavilion that’ll offer more inspiration than even we can provide. Featuring representatives from right across the globe, we plan on getting the low down about dozens of destinations (and the guides to hire there) from the pros.
We’d love to meet you at the show – so much so we’re offering you a GuideAdvisor discount coupon to receive $4 off your admission. Drop by Booth 1100 to meet our team and partake in the three contests we have at the show.
