Seattle Boat Show Seminar
The Seattle Boat Show will be returning to CenturyLink Field and Event Center starting on January 24, and with it comes over 200 free seminars for show attendees. This year’s show will include 160 talks on boating topics and 77 on fishing and crabbing topics, featuring dozens of new presenters and topics.

The 2020 boating seminars will be presented by 60 speakers and include a wide range of seminars so any boater will find something to enjoy.

For fishing enthusiasts, there’s no better way to spend your free time at the show than by attending a fishing or crabbing seminar. This year’s show will host 15 speakers, five of whom are new. Beside the regular talks, on Saturday January 25, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Region 6 Director Larry Phillips and staff members will host a Q&A session on all things fishing/hunting, killer whale issues, salmon season setting, licensing, and more.

The boat show runs this year from Friday, January 24 to Saturday, February 1, with two locations; indoors at CenturyLink Field Event Center and afloat at South Lake Union. A full list of the seminars and Boat Show University classes can be found at seattleboatshow.com/seminars.
