This Thursday marks the start of the Toronto Sportsmen Show. This show has typically been held on the March Break however this year it is being held from February 7-10. Will this hurt the show? Possibly. It may hinder the families that have made it a March Break tradition from going…not because they don’t want to go but because they may not have been aware that the dates have changed. I myself usually can’t wait until this show…however in the last few years while at the Metro Toronto Convention Center I’ve not gone because the convention center was small and a little frustrating to get around considering the show took over both buildings.
This year the show is back at the Direct Energy Center at Exhibition Place. From a visitor point of view…that pleases me because I’m able to see everything without having to navigate between different floors/buildings. A few of the things I’m hoping to see are:
- A great group of outfitters
- New camping technologies
- New opportunities for camping destinations
- And maybe some old friends.
Even though the show is starting to become more geared to hunting and fishing there will be 175 vendors/exhibitors within the Outdoor and Travel expo area. I will follow up this weekend with a review and photos for sure. I’m hoping to get a few interviews regarding gear and destinations.
~Enjoy your Trip!
