First of all, PADDLEexpo is a small show and hard to compare with huge multi-sport exhibitions. However, the international paddle sports industry is doing really well and PADDLEexpo is an important part of it:
■ # 15 edition this year
■ More buyers than ever before at the previous show (2016)
■ More brands than ever before at PADDLEexpo 2017
■ More exhibitors’ stands than ever before at PADDLEexpo 2017
In other words: More reasons for attending PADDLEexpo than ever before!
We still take bookings from exhibitors, but they will be set on the waiting list.
Most of the regular exhibitors are aboard again, plus new exhibitors from the SUP, kayaking, canoeing and equipment sector.
Now the “puzzle” will be assembled, the floor plan will be drawn and approved. It is expected to be finished in early July.
Exhibitor application for PADDLEexpo 2017 has finally started. Regular exhibitors as well as new exhibitors should find the application form in their email inbox today. Otherwise please send a mail or register at: www.paddleexpo.com/exhibitor-registration
PADDLEexpo will return to hall 7A in 2017. This is one of the bright halls with plenty of daylight, close to the parking lots, slightly bigger than 2016’s venue. We have already exhibited in hall 7A in 2008, 2009 and 2013.
Every year, a few weeks after PADDLEexpo, the annual Buyers Guide comes to life; for paddlers in all four corners of the world, the Guide becomes the juncture to check out the novelties of the Planet Paddlesports.
Opening its pages with the industry magazine section, the Guide also aims to be a reflection of what visitors would have seen at this year’s show, while anticipating where the future will take us.
