Paddlesports Retailers:  A trade show for paddlers

Paddlesports Retailer 2017, held from August 30th to September 1st in Madison, Wisconsin is seeking to create a high quality trade show at a time of year that retailers can actually attend and in a location that is both accessible and affordable.  In addition to that, they’ve sweetened the pot by offering a $129 credit per night within a particular block of rooms for the trade show to the first 200 retailers who sign up.

The industry is putting its money where its mouth is,” said Paddlesports Retailer manager Marcus Shoffner in an exclusive interview with SNEWS. “Everything about this show, from its convenient time to its familiar location for paddlers to the onsite experience, has been developed with retailers in mind.

Currently 80 brands are representing the show and 75% of the exhibition space has been SOLD. Register for your presence TODAY.

Buyers that register for the Wisconsin show and book lodging within the designated room block will be given a hotel credit of up to $129 per night for three nights, with a limit of one room per store. That’s the equivalent of over $75,000 going back into retailers’ pockets!  Who doesn’t love that?

Paddlesports Retailer also promises that there are more incentives to come.  The lodging credit is only one facet of the show’s program to incentivize retail buyers. “The industry will soon be announcing additional buyer programs that continue to define this show as the official national tradeshow for paddlesports,” said Bill Kueper, vice president of Wenonah Canoe, Inc. and chair of the Paddlesports Trade Coalition.
