Altstadtfest Nürnberg

The “Altstadtfest” is the annual festival in the historical town of Nuremberg: fresh food, music, celebration in the streets, not too loud and perfect for a nice, relaxed evening in the old town of Nuremberg.

This year the Altstadtfest happens to be at the same time with PADDLEexpo.

The website and event schedule is in German, but it will deliver basic information and maps:……pdf

PADDLEexpo is a trade show, it is not a public show. If you are unsure of your eligibility please be in touch before traveling to the show.

WARNING – do not buy „attendees list“

The address data of PADDLEexpo attendees have been offered to some exhibitors in the last weeks/months and it seems to be going on.

This is a fraud!

All visitor data are confidential. Do not buy an “Prospective Visitors List”, “Paddleexpo 2017 Attendees List” or similar.

Oktoberfest München
The famous Munich beer fest starts on 16-Sept-2017 and will close on 03-Oct-2017. Munich is located 100 miles south from Nuremberg, or 1h by high-speed-train. Why not visit Oktoberfest after PADDLEexpo?

The Bavarian Purity Requirements:
It’s no coincidence, that Bavaria has the best beer in the world: Since the 16th century there have been strong regulations about brewing beer and how to keep up the high quality of the final product by choosing the ingredients very carefully. One of the oldest laws concerning food and drink are the Bavarian Purity Requirements, decreed by Duke William IV. in 1516: Only water, hops and barley should be used to brew Bavarian beer.

B2B Magazin outdoor.markt

„Händler haben auf der PADDLEexpo die Gelegenheit zum direkten Kontakt und ausführlichen Gespräch mit den Lieferanten und den Entwicklern. Sie können sich die Produkte ansehen und sie ausprobieren. Nur wer mal selbst in einem Boot gesessen hat, kann beispielsweise beurteilen, ob es für seine Kundschaft geeignet ist, ob es etwa genügend Platz bietet. So kann der Händler sich einen Informationsvorsprung verschaffen und seine Kunden viel besser beraten.“

outdoor.markt ist das einzige B2B-Magazin für Industrie und Handel, das sich ausschließlich auf die boomende Outdoorbranche spezialisiert hat.

outdoor.markt richtet sich an beide Seiten des Marktes gleichermaßen und dient dem Informationsfluss zwischen Industrie und Handel. Wir vermitteln und zeigen gemeinsame Lösungsansätze auf, anstatt einseitiges Sprachrohr zu sein.

Boardsportsource: German Market

„SUP rental is growing even though we aren’t located on a lake. We work together with a SUP school where customers can test simple boards. We notice that they still tend to buy the high quality equipment.“

German Market Intel September 2017
It was almost a textbook summer in Germany this year. The Germans witnessed what they usually search for when holidaying: sunshine, blue skies, high temperatures and mild summer nights. But unfortunately due to extreme weather conditions – heavy rainfall, thunderstorms and extreme high temperatures – it was really hard for retailers.

Jochen Bauer took a look  at a cross section of German action sports shops. Find his report now here online at
