Since we opened our doors over six decades ago, we’ve grown to become the largest boat show on the West Coast with an average of 50,000+ visitors each year. Our show attendees are loyal and engaged members of the northwest recreational boating community who are looking to browse boats, boating accessories, and related services.

Our newly redesigned sponsorship program enables companies to elevate their brand to stand out from the crowd. Connect directly with our engaged audience, generate leads, and strengthen your brand by partnering with another iconic Seattle brand.

Sponsorship packages are designed to help you reach your marketing objectives.

Get the most out of your visit to the Seattle Boat Show and explore all that Seattle has to offer. Excellent restaurants can be found throughout the downtown area, and there are plenty of things to see and do around the city. If you’re traveling into Seattle for the show, consider turning your trip into an overnight at one of our partner hotels.

The Seattle Boat Show is partnering with four local hotels to offer special group rates for show guests and exhibitors.

NOTE: There are limited rooms available at the Seattle Boat Show rate. If a room comes up as a different price than the Seattle Boat Show rate, it is because the discounted rooms for that night(s) have sold out.

Each year, the Seattle Boat Show features boating and fishing seminars to help you explore new horizons and expand your knowledge of boating, taught by maritime experts who are excited to share their nautical know-how.

Seminars (sponsored by Union Marine) typically run in one hour segments and are free for show attendees in-person at Lumen Field Event Center. Boat Show University webinars (sponsored by Boat Insurance Agency) are longer and offer more in-depth instruction* on topics and require a Seminar Package ticket (starting at $99), which also includes access to watch both seminars and BSU classes online. *The maximum capacity for in-person viewing of BSU classes at the show is 90, first come first served, and you must have a Seminar Package ticket.
