NMMA expands scope of New Orleans show

Posted on

The National Marine Manufacturers Association announced its New Orleans Boat Show will now be the New Orleans Boat & Sportshow, expanded to include fishing, hunting and other sporting and outdoors industries.

In addition to the name change, Louisiana Sportsman, a leading authority on hunting and fishing, will provide the show with a new and extensive seminar series featuring high-profile sporting and outdoors professionals.

While the New Orleans Boat & Sportshow will maintain its traditional boat show offerings, a wider selection of exhibitors will now be on hand, from tackle and accessory dealers to hunting, fishing and travel booths.

“This is an opportunity to create a stronger and more successful show for boat dealers from throughout the Gulf Coast region and build new opportunities for the outdoors community,” said Ben Wold, executive vice president for the NMMA, producer of the New Orleans Boat & Sportshow, in a statement.

“The Gulf Coast is one of the nation’s leading regions for the outdoors industry, and so there’s a real need for this type of show in that market,” he added. “We’re excited to be able to bring a boat and sport show to the vibrant and growing community of boaters and outdoors enthusiasts in and around New Orleans.”

The New Orleans Boat & Sportshow’s partnership with Louisiana Sportsman will allow outdoor enthusiasts the chance to learn from the Gulf Coast’s leading sportsmen through an extensive schedule of seminars, which will include the show’s traditional boating and fishing seminars in addition to a new selection of hunting and other outdoor seminars.

“Sponsoring this show’s seminar series is what we’re all about – helping our anglers and hunters hone their skills and learn from some of the nation’s top guides,” Louisiana Sportsman publisher Tony Taylor said in a statement.

The 2010 New Orleans Boat & Sportshow will take place Jan. 6-10 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center.

    THE FUTURE OF SHOWS???
    IN THIS NEW GLOBAL WORLD OF OURS WHERE THE MIDDLE CLASS IS QUICKLY DISAPPEARING, I WOULD NOT BE TOTALLY SURPRISE TO SEE SHOWS IN THE FUTURE BECOME A “NEW” TYPE OF ATTRACTION SUCH AS;
    “THE OUTDOOR SHOW”
    WHICH WILL INCLUDE ALL TYPES OF OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES;
    FISHING, HUNTING BOATING, HIKING, RVING, CAMPING, & OFF ROAD 4 WHEELING!
    THEN PERHAPS THE CROWDS WILL BE LARGE ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED TO REALIZE SOME SORT OF PROFIT!
