About the Product

In these unprecedented times, our company is  working hard to continue delivering on our mission to connect your business with buyers. Currently, the safest way to do this is online.

Introducing our Digital Marketplace.  Similar to a live show, this product allows users to visit various products and services from numerous companies and gain education through the seminar program.

We have seen much success with similar products in other markets across the country – from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Vancouver, BC, and many places in between.

The Eastern Canadian Fisheries Digital Marketplace will keep you connected with our qualified audience, including those who work on, in, and around the water.  Click here to see a sample of one of our other Digital Marketplaces in action.

Visitor Marketing

Marketing to Key Industry Decision Makers  - The strength of this Marketplace is our ability to market the product to our established Yarmouth, NS and Moncton, NB show communities. Our email database of past show visitors and social media followers is over to 15,000 strong, and we’ll reach this audience and beyond through a combination of direct email newsletters, social media posts, and Facebook advertising.  

We’re confident this alternative to face-to-face marketing will be a fantastic tool to get your products and services in front of a targeted audience.

Our audience marketing campaign will begin in early June and run for 30 days. This multi-channel integrated campaign will include the following components:  

  • DIRECT EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS to our database of close to 8,000 past show attendees. Newsletters will be sent at least 8 times during the campaign and each will include featured exhibitor shout-outs and banner ads.
  • PRINT ADVERTISING AND INDUSTRY SUPPORT – our promotional efforts will be assisted by key industry associations communicating to their members and subscribers as well as media partners like The Navigator Magazine and Atlantic Fisherman.
  • FACEBOOK & TWITTER CAMPAIGNS with daily postings to our nearly 7,000 followers on the Eastern Canadian Fisheries Exposition and Fish Canada Workboat Canada social media pages. Posts will include unique content and exhibitor highlights. A paid advertising campaign will ensure we broaden our reach and continue to grow our social media presence as well as impressions to the Digital Marketplace.

 Audience Marketing Timeframe: Early June for 30 days (Specific dates to be outlined)
