    The union employees of BC Place Stadium (BCGEU) announced today their decision to go on strike. They voted 95% in favour of rejecting the latest contract offer from stadium management. The strike is scheduled to begin at 12 noon today – Sunday, February 6. As a result of the strike decision – BC Place Stadium will be closed today at 12 noon and the status of the 2005 Vancouver Boat Show is uncertain at this time.

    The Vancouver Boat Show staff and over 250 exhibitors are hoping that the union and management of BC Place Stadium can come to an agreement today or tomorrow, so that this location of the show will not have to be cancelled. If the union and management of BC Place do not come to an agreement by 2 pm – Monday, February 7, then the BC Place location of the show would have to be cancelled.

    The in-water venue at False Creek Yacht Club is not affected by the labour dispute at BC Place. Regardless of what happens at BC Place the in-water venue at False Creek Yacht Club will open as scheduled from February 9 – 13.

    We continue to remain optimistic that the employees and management of BC Place Stadium will come to an agreement and that the Vancouver Boat Show at their facility will not be cancelled.

    I know a few people that will be going to the one in Calgary

    Here is the Latest...
    The BC Place portion of the 2005 Vancouver International Boat Show has been cancelled due to the strike vote of the employees at BC Place Stadium (BCGEU). There is a small window of opportunity that we can still produce the Vancouver Boat Show - we are exploring all possibilities available to us and remain optimistic.
