13 Fishing & Rapala – Mark Van Beek – “The 75th Annual Sportsmen's show was a great success for 13 Fishing and Rapala as we were able to get face to face and build real engagement with 10’s of thousands of fishing and outdoor enthusiasts. We very much look forward to next year and plan to increase our booth size. We have something BIG planned for 2024…”

Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters – Angelo Lombardo – “The TSS provides a unique, one-of-a-kind experience, that connects us directly with those who appreciate the outdoors and are passionate about fishing and hunting. Being a part of this show puts us directly in contact with our target audience and provides an excellent opportunity to promote the OFAH and our lifestyle.”

Legend Boats – Henry Nguyen – “Legend Boats has been a proud supporter of The Sportsmen’s show since the early 90's. The Sportsmen’s Show has always been a breath of fresh air to our long Canadian winters and breaks up the cabin fever feeling. We attend this show to showcase our new models and provide customers the ability to take advantage of our early pre-season promotions and availability of product for pickup. As we head back to normality with shows, the Sportsmen show will continue to play a key part in the marine industry for Canadians many years to come”
