This trade show has been attended by IFI staff regularly in recent years and has proven a successful forum for many Irish angling service providers to reach the Dutch tourism market. The show clientele are primarily interested in sea and pike angling and so the show is ideally suited to service providers operating in those markets. There will be some enquiries for bass, salmon, coarse and trout fishing too. The show is located towards the south of The Netherlands and so will attract visitors from Belgium and northern Germany in addition to the regular Dutch clientele.

Attendance Criteria

IFI in conjunction with DCAL and The Loughs Agency have jointly developed the “Angling Ireland” brand which we now use to market Ireland when attending trade shows. The branding consists of a logo and a colour scheme. All banners & counters used at our stands use this branding and it gives the stand a consistent identity. There will be no room for ‘own branded’ display banners at the stand in Utrecht but IFI will assist participants in producing & procuring banners that fit in with the ‘Angling Ireland’ brand if required.

The Angling Ireland stand will measure at least 3m x 5m (depending on number of participants). You will have your own counter & chair. We will have electricity at the stand for your laptops etc. Please note that you need a different plug (adapter). Inland Fisheries Ireland will supply the Exhibitor Passes advance of the show. 

Clientele speak Dutch but most also speak English very well so language is usually not an issue for conversation and/or promotional material. It is recommended that the participants have high quality presentation material available and enough brochures and other material if needed. Knowledge of prices/routes to travel to Ireland and costs of fishing packages offered will be required. IFI will provide general angling material and it is hoped Tourism Ireland will assist with some general tourism brochures in Dutch.
