Early registration for ICAST lasts through June 6

Early registration for this year’s International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades runs through June 6. Produced by the American Sportfishing Association, ICAST is scheduled for July 9-12 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

“ICAST is the annual gathering point for the entire sportfishing industry,” ASA president Glenn Hughes said in a statement. “We bring together more manufacturers, buyers and media than any other sportfishing trade event in the world. That means more new products, more business opportunities, more media coverage and incredible networking possibilities for everyone who attends.”

Attendees registering before June 7 receive a discount.

A State of the Industry breakfast, presented by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation, will take place July 10 from 7:15 to 8:45 a.m. Keynote speaker Sally Hogshead will outline what it takes to make a lasting first impression.
