Booth space for the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show – the largest international gathering of fly fishing manufacturers, retailers, sales reps, media and fly fishing organizations in the world — is officially sold out for 2016. The show, slated to take place in Orlando, Florida, July 12-15, 2016, is reputed as “the place” to meet with the industry – the people, products, innovations, emerging trends and the leading brand presentations of the 2016/2017 fly fishing season.
More than 232 booths have seen sold, confirming 2016 will be the largest IFTD show to date. “This is the first time in the history of IFTD that the show has sold out the first week of March,” AFFTA President Ben Bulis stated. “This is the direct result of providing our exhibitors with a level of customer service and delivering a product they feel is a ‘can’t miss event.’ I applaud the industry, our members, and the current and past board members for their dedication and commitment to our industry trade association and IFTD. It takes a year to plan IFTD and one the many changes we made this year — bringing the two casting ponds to the center of the show — has proven to be a great decision for our exhibitors, and one show attendees will enjoy as well. IFTD is our industry trade show, I look forward to seeing everyone in Orlando.”
