CHC-NSC2018

On the Water Demos

Once again in March, sponsors and exhibitors participating in the 2018 conference will have the opportunity to demonstrate their products on vessels docked in the lovely Victoria Inner Harbour. This location is ideal with easy and direct access from the Victoria Convention Centre located across the street.

We have secured dock space at 2 locations for our participants. Causeway Dock C will be used for loading and unloading passengers during demonstrations. Overnight moorage will be hosted at Wharf Street Dock D.

Setup Date:      Monday, March 26, 2018 from 12 pm – 4 pm

Demo Dates:    Tuesday, March 27 – Wednesday, March 28, 2018

Timing:              9 am – 4 pm (sign-up required)

Location:           Causeway Dock C

Participant Sign-up: Attendees will be directed to sign-up for a demo with participating companies at their exhibit stands during the conference.

Cost to Host a Demo: There is no cost for hosting a demonstration beyond the cost of having a vessel moored overnight at Victoria Harbour Wharf Street Dock D. The conference has booked and will pay for Causeway Dock C for loading and unloading of participants. This is directly in front of the Empress Hotel.

Overnight moorage fees for Wharf Street D and any power requirements will be booked and paid directly by the vessels requiring space. Costs will depend on vessel size and moorage requirements.
