Interested in being an exhibitor? A few spaces opened up!
Due to a few last minute cancellations, we're opening up space again. We have four 10x10 booths, 2 10x10 corner booths and one 10x20. We allow select outfitters, guides, schools, and people with a specialized product that is outdoor or paddlesports-related (no ginzu knives or Sham-wows, please) to exhibit at Canoecopia. If you're interested, contact Darren at . Don't wait, we'll be filling up shortly...less than 10 booths left!

We're putting updates on Facebook with news about new manufacturers, exhibitors and presenters. Like Canoecopia on Facebook and keep in touch with the latest news...and be sure to follow us, not just like us (or FB will hide stuff from you). Anyway, the link's over to the left. Look for the giant F.

In addition to our annual favorites, we've gotten a ton of proposals from new speakers! We have closed the application process and are now wading through all these great proposals. If you have a question about speaking, you can contact Nancy.

Last year we had well over 200 manufacturers, outfitters and guides, schools and other paddling organizations represented. Click here to download last year's show guide to see a listing of who was there (and everything else too).
