Registration for the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, better known as ICAST, is now open to all attendees and exhibitors. ICAST is being held July 11 – 13, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. and promises to be one of the best shows yet. The show is 96% sold out on floor space and up 20% for registration versus this time last year. A new, streamlined registration process allows attendees to easily register, make housing reservations and purchase State of the Industry breakfast tickets during the registration process.
In addition to the new website www.ICASTfishing.org, ICAST has a new web and mobile application rolling out this month that will allow attendees to use their smart phones at the show. The phone app will allow attendees to view the floor plan and exhibitor list through their phones to help them navigate the show floor, find show schedule information and plan their agendas. This same technology will be used on the show floor through touch screen kiosks which are meant to replace older You Are Here boards.
ICAST will also have more visuals this year including boats like flat skiffs, bass boats and offshore vessels at the show.
