To exhibit at a boat show just might be the smartest investment decision for your marine and boating business. There are hundreds of boat shows around the country for your your company to exhibit. There are commercial shows for commercial fishing and industrial marine industry, and there are many more consumer shows with tens of thousands of boat show visitors craving to find out about your marine products and services.  The cost of exhibiting at a boat show could be as little as a few hundred dollars for a small local boat show, to the more common investment of $700 to $1000 USD for a typical regional or national boat show, and upwards of $2,000 to $3,000 for a commercial marine show.  The investment in the boat show is of course related to the type of show, the location, the amount of boat show visitors, and the quality of participants.  When you market your product or service effectively at a boat show, you could generate significant brand awareness, make great contacts with boating and marine press, and obtain a significant supply of customers and leads for your boating related business.  There are many boat shows in Washington State at which your company can exhibit, and there are also boat shows surrounding the Washington DC Metro area.
