Our partnered media opportunities provide unbeatable value because:

  1. Your dollars are matched by Destination BC funding and
  2. Your dollars are pooled with dollars from other stakeholders

You get exposure at a fraction of the cost of market value.

Our Programs

We will notify our stakeholders about three types of media opportunities. Price for participation will depend on costs and the number of stakeholders that participate.

Consumer Shows Brochures

AHOY BC may attends:

Vancouver International Boat Show

Western Canada’s premier boat show — BC’s largest showcase for the recreational boating industry.

Seattle Boat Show

With 55,000 visitors, this is the largest boat show on the U.S west coast and a hotbed of potential new visitors to BC waters. We attend by proxy.

Victoria In-harbour Boat Show

A growing show staged at the beginning of the boating season.

Businesses and DMOs may purchase listings in our brochure. Alternatively, we will distribute your brochure. Marinas and communities with enhanced profiles pay $200; all others pay $250.

Travel Media

Travel journalism is one of the most effective types of marketing. Stories, rather than ads, sell the product and experience you offer. By introducing media to a range of experiences, we can create a more interesting story to attract potential visitors. AHOY BC will align travel writers with appropriate communities, regions and stories. We will help you arrange multi-community partnerships. The cost of the program will be shared by AHOY BC and participating clients. Contact Michael to discuss: .
