Here’s the release:

Angling International has responded to demands from the tackle trade by launching a new trade show in Europe. The first ever Angling International LIVE show will take place this year between September 26 and 28 at the HUNGEXPO in Budapest, and registration is open right now.

The show will fill the gap in the calendar left by the EFTTEX trade show, which will not take place in 2024. The owner of that show, the trade association EFTTA, confirmed to Angling International’s editors in February that EFTTA’s focus will be on growing membership and its lobbying work in the European Parliament.

Rob Carter, the owner of Angling International, said: “We are delighted to announce a new trade show for Europe, taking place in September. We have been talking to businesses in Europe and around the world for some months, including our long-term magazine advertisers and exhibitors from the last EFTTEX in Budapest.

“From those conversations it quickly became clear that the industry wants a trade show in Europe, and people trust Angling International to deliver it. So that is what we are going to do.

“We have partnered with the team that organised the successful return of a European show last year and we are returning to the same venue. That means everything is in place for us to move quicky and without any snags.”

But there are two big differences compared to last year and to all previous European shows, said Carter. “Firstly, we are holding the show in September. The majority of exhibitors tell us that is the best time to talk to retailers about products for the new season. We want more retailers at the show, so we have listened and switched the date from June.

“And, secondly, we are going to focus on growing attendance. We are going to target the widest possible trade audience in Europe and use all our Angling International media platforms to promote the show, promote our exhibitors and attract more visitors.
