Dec 23, 2021

After a hiatus in ’21, Atlantic Canada’s largest boating event is set to return to the Halifax Exhibition Centre, February 3-6, 2022. HIBS has been Atlantic Canada’s premiere boating show for over 40 years. Products typically showcased include the latest in runabouts, cruisers, motor yachts, pontoon boats, fishing boats, inflatables, RIBS and personal watercraft. The show also offers exhibits of marine equipment, engines, outboard and inboard, marine electronics and accessories, docks and dock builders.

“With the recent rise in popularity, the demand for boats, pontoons and personal watercraft is at it’s peak,” says Scott Sprague, Show Manager. “February is a great time to buy and having the dealers all under one roof is convenient for buyers.”
