Fly Fishing Show announces new location in Pennsylvania for 2011 at the Valley Forge Convention Center near Philadelphia, March 5,6.
We always receive suggestions on new locations and requests to do our Fly Fishing Show in areas that would welcome us. These possible additions are always examined and researched carefully for the best dates, user friendly facilities, and the potential for exciting attendance figures to increase your business and our sport. A new show is a careful decision, but once it is planned you can expect it to be a winner.
The new show is the “Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Show” scheduled for March 5th and 6th at the Valley Forge Convention Center. This location in the King of Prussia area near Philadelphia is very difficult to obtain because of the popularity of the exhibit hall. Plus it has free parking for exhibitors and attendees, convenient hotels and restaurants, and no high union set-up fees. Originally we were working on a March 19th & 20th date at the Greater Philadelphia Expo, but have a better opportunity at Valley Forge.
Since the announcement of the “Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Show” was first mentioned, response has been awesome. It will take place almost two months after Somerset, so any attendees that wouldn’t miss Somerset will also be ready to attend a second fly event. And the dates precede the opening of trout season, which allows the attendees to purchase needed products for the coming season. Plans are to lean toward a more Pennsylvania celebrity speaking schedule, as not to duplicate Somerset talks. All our exhibitors at Somerset should seriously consider attending the Philadelphia area show. It will be packed.
