NMMA accessories pavilion set to return to ICAST

Produced by the American Sportfishing Association, ICAST is the world's largest sportfishing trade show.

Each year nearly 13,000 representatives of the global sportfishing community converge on the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., for the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades.

Produced by the American Sportfishing Association, ICAST is the world's largest sportfishing trade show.

In response to member requests, and based on the success of the inaugural pavilion, the National Marine Manufacturers Association announced it will once again host a Marine Accessories Pavilion at ICAST 2017, which will be held July 11-14.

The NMMA said the pavilion will be hosted in a new location and should deliver improved traffic to the area throughout the show.

The pavilion is open exclusively to NMMA members.
