The January 2018 show was a huge success, thanks to you!
We’ll be opening exhibit space for the 2019 Show (January 4-6) later this summer, so stay tuned.
The Austin Boat Show has been going on since 1972 and added Travel Trailers in 2010. We garner 7,000-9,000 qualified buyers at this event. Our attendees are either in or are looking to get into all the outdoors has to offer in Central Texas. We pride ourselves on qualified attendees!
Thursday 4p-9p (new for 2019)!
