INDIANAPOLIS — The nation’s largest consumer sports exhibit, the Indianapolis Boat, Sport & Travel Show, has been canceled for 2021 due to health concerns and venue capacity restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The cancellation is the first time since the 1950s that the city has not hosted the show — which fills buildings at the Indiana State Fairgrounds with boats, RVs, campers, watercraft and fishing equipment.
“This is the first time in our 66-year history that we’ve ever postponed a show, and it’s a major disappointment to our entire organization,” said Kevin Renfro, with Anderson, Ind.-based Renfro Productions, Inc., which produces and manages the show, in a statement. “But the good news is that we expect to be back bigger and better than ever in 2022.”
