RBFF will be at MAATS, ICAST

The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation will exhibit at next week's Marine Aftermarket Accessories Trade Show and the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades show to pursue partnership opportunities.

"We are always looking for new and innovative ways to help partners leverage our programs and, working together, we know we will increase participation in the sport," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement.

RBFF staff will be available to discuss opportunities for getting involved with the Take Me Fishing campaign and the Anglers' Legacy program. During the annual ICAST industry breakfast July 15, Peterson will highlight the recent successes of RBFF's efforts to increase participation and reveal the organization's latest boating and fishing research.

MAATS and ICAST will take place July 15-17 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. RBFF representatives will be located at Booth No. 1956.
