In lieu of in-person events being postponed until 2021, Passagemaker Magazine has announced a new virtual format for this year’s popular TrawlerFest event series. 

A new, online-only "TrawlerFest LIVE” is set to take place November 12-14, 2020. Tickets are available now. 

TrawlerFest LIVE will be a cutting-edge virtual venue where industry minds, educators and the cruising community come together over a three-day online summit. The event will showcase products and boats in a format that is also conducive to attendees being able to enjoy the traditional TrawlerFest camaraderie around their shared passion for the long-range cruising lifestyle. TrawlerFest LIVE will feature 12 topnotch educational seminars and online demonstrations of products, and expert troubleshooting advice and boat-handling techniques.

“I’m beyond pleased to announce the upcoming launch of TrawlerFest LIVE, which we’ve specially curated this year to safely connect our audience of trawler enthusiasts with the long-range cruising industry in the midst of the pandemic,” said Passagemaker Editor-in-Chief Andrew Parkinson. “Our events team has been working around the clock to ensure that the TrawlerFest LIVE experience will be like attending a full-blown traditional TrawlerFest, but from the comfort and safety of your own home. We look forward to embarking on this special virtual voyage together with the trawler faithful.”


By design, TrawlerFest LIVE is far from an ordinary “digital boat show.” The event will deliver a socially engaging and networking rendezvous style experience, so attendees may enjoy the closest possible experience to an in-person event.

Sponsors and exhibitors will have the opportunity to showcase their products, services and boat offerings on an interactive digital platform, interacting in real time with attendees through live demonstrations, chats, boat tours, educational seminars and more.

“While the actual TrawlerFest LIVE event will run for three days, the webinars, demos and vessel walkthroughs will be available on the site for six months,” said AIM Marine Group Event Sales and Logistics Manager Ryan Davidson.
