The 2010 Toronto Sportsmen's Show a Resounding Success!

The 2010 Toronto Sportsmen's Show a Resounding Success!

Having made a big move in 2010, The Toronto Sportsmen's Show fit perfectly into its new diggs at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre after spending 62 years at The CNE.

More than 100,000 spectators flooded the North and South buildings over the course of five days enjoying this rite of passage into the spring season. More than 400 exhibitors offered an exciting lineup of the latest gear for camping, fishing, hiking, hunting, canoeing, travel and boating.

My personal fave? The Great Dane Rescue: the organization takes in abandoned Great Danes and finds them good homes. At any given day of the show I could be found with my 120 pound friend Emmett and he lay sprawled on the floor as I babied him.

Our friend Bob Izumi was a media darling drawing crowds and media to the show alike. Speaking of media, it was our most successful year on record. Jessica Patriquin wowed everyone at the office securing Canada AM, Breakfast Television and CP 24 in support of the show, just to name a few.

Now that we're all recuperated, can't wait to do it again next year!
