Yes, we will have a full weekend of presentations and speakers at the event. Please visit the Presenters Page for more information.
No. There will be a different set of presentations to access in the virtual event. Some might cross over but it will not be the exact schedule as the in-person show.
The virtual portion of the show will be available during the live event, as well as up to 90 days after the live event.
The two events are separate entities and will not necessarily have the same presentations offered for both due to travel restrictions, technical abilities, etc.
All virtual presentations will be pre-recorded, and will not be a recording of the in-person presentations.
Due to supply chain issues there will not be a discount on boats at Canoecopia this year. There will be discounts on select categories of gear at the show.
Special order boats will be very limited this year and will vary from vendor to vendor.
The 2022 show guide will be digital. We will have printed maps and speaker schedules at the event.
On March 1st, the Dane County mask mandate expired. Per county health officials, this means masks are no longer required indoors. We respectfully recommend that attendees still wear a face covering while attending Canoecopia. Individuals with a medical condition or a disability that prevents wearing a face covering, or individuals who are hearing impaired should do what's best for them.
At the request of our speakers (and the fact that the speaker rooms are often very full), masks are required to be worn in speaker rooms
. Masks will be available if needed at no charge outside the speaker area. For those who don't wish to wear a mask in speaker rooms, most of the presentations are available to watch virtually by purchasing a virtual ticket.
The health and safety of our paddling community remains a top priority, and our staff will be required to wear a face covering.
Of course, people who are symptomatic should be responsible to our community and attend next year. Your tickets, if purchased already, may be refunded or used in 2023.
We look forward to bringing our paddling community together for the first time in three years. We can't wait to see you all.
Thanks for your cooperation. We really appreciate it!
