Registration for exhibitors for 2022 will open soon! Canoecopia is a great showcase for your business or products. We allow select outfitters, guides, schools, and people with a specialized product that is outdoor or paddlesports-related to exhibit at Canoecopia (no ginzu knives or Sham-wows, please). If you're interested, contact Darren at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't wait, we'll be filling up quickly!
Requests for speaker proposals are now being accepted! Do you have a great story to tell that is related to paddling? Email Darren at email@example.com and he'll send you the application. While we do bring back popular speakers year after year, well over half of our speakers are new each year.
Canoecopia is the largest paddlesports consumer event in the world. More than 250,000 square feet of kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards, outdoor equipment and clothing, all at the best prices of the season, make Canoecopia a "must go" place for gear! With over 180 seminars and clinics, Canoecopia is also an educational event where you can learn about the perfect gear for your style of paddling, develop skills to get you where you want to go, and discover some of the many places to paddle, both near and far.
If you're interested in experiencing life on the water, Canoecopia is the best place to spend the weekend!
