The OFSC Go Snowmobiling Show showcased the snowmobiling lifestyle to thousands of snowmobilers and those interested in trying snowmobiling. The upscale celebration stripped way all the clutter to focus on providing the key information participants need to get started and to plan their season.
“We are very proud of this first-year effort to deliver the Greater Toronto Area’s only pure snowmobiling show dedicated to recreational family snowmobiling,” said Paul Shaughnessy, OFSC executive director. “The OFSC is committed to building our show over the next several years to play a major role in attracting new participants and growing our industry.”
Show attendees and exhibitors complimented the OFSC on delivering a classy, comfortable and welcoming show that portrayed snowmobiling in a very positive and appealing way. As one exhibitor commented: “This is the kind of show that attracts affluent the baby boomers, families, cottagers and other up market, high quality consumers who traditionally don’t go to the other powersports show.”
“The OFSC is very grateful to the exhibitors who supported the home team for organized snowmobiling in Ontario by coming to our first show and demonstrating their support of our clubs and volunteers,” said OFSC President Bruce Robinson.
Many attendees were especially pleased at how easy it was to shop and compare all the 2008 models in the huge snowmobile mall that anchored the show with the impressive corporate booths of Arctic Cat, Polaris, Ski-Doo and Yahama. One attendee was heard to remark that because everything was so easy to find, this show didn’t waste his time trying to sort through unwanted, non-snowmobile distractions.
“As first year shows go, the OFSC Go Snowmobiling Show came off very well and met our expectations. Plans are already underway to take it to the next level in September, 2008,” said Denise Hayward, show manager. “We invite those companies who want to be part of the Go Snowmobiling movement to reserve your place now for next year’s show.”
