Inland Fisheries Ireland will be participating in this promotional show in 2018 with the Loughs Agency and industry partners. The Salon de la Pêche en Mer in Nantes is one of the largest angling promotion events in France and attracted around 95 exhibitors and 12,242 visitors in 2017. The show runs for three days and is the ideal platform to promote the Irish angling product to anglers in the North West region of France. Although heavily influenced by sea angling, the show affords opportunities to promote all aspects of freshwater fishing as well. The visitors to the salon mainly come from the western coastal departments of Aquitaine, Normandy, Brittany, Pays de la Loire and Poitou Charente. Some also travel from the Mediterranean region and some from the Paris area which is only 2 hours away. This salon provides a great opportunity for trade partners to develop new business, meet existing customers and meet press and other important influencers in the French market.

In 2018, the “Pêche en Irlande” stand will measure 18m² and exhibitors will have their own desk. Please note that there is no provision for partner displays, banners, backdrops or pop up stands. Please ensure that you bring your “Pêche en Irlande” pull up banner with you! Further information on this may be obtained from the contact above. The stand will have its own electricity supply for your laptops and other electronic devices. Please note that you need a different plug (adapter) for France. It is recommended that the participants have a supply of high quality promotional material as well as costed/priced fishing packages in French. An ability to converse in French with visitors to the stand is desirable but not essential as some assistance can be provided by other stand members.
