Industry Dinner

Free bar, free buffet?
The story behind the PADDLEexpo dinner

Before PADDLEexpo, the professionals met in Southern Bavaria, where manufacturers like Klepper, Prijon, Blue & White and Bavaria Boats are located. They all held in-house shows for their customers on the same weekend, some other “exhibitors” booked the ballroom at the local hotel to display their latest developments at the same time.
In the evening the suppliers invited all of their customers to a traditional Bavarian “Biergarten Restaurant” for dinner and a party.

Many things have changed since those early days. The show is bigger, we are not at a Biergarten anymore, but the idea is still the same: PADDLEexpo industry dinner is the annual invitation from all PADDLEexpo exhibitors to all of their customers.
