Space available for NMMA pavilion at ICAST

The National Marine Manufacturers Association said it has limited space available at its ICAST pavilion.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association said it has limited space available at its pavilion at next year’s International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, better known as ICAST.

Last month, the American Sportfishing Association and the NMMA announced a partnership in which the NMMA will produce a new marine accessories pavilion at the event.

ICAST will be held July 12-15 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Since 2011, ICAST has nearly doubled its floor space from 350,000 square feet to the 647,000 square feet planned for 2016.

The NMMA says adding the accessories pavilion is a natural extension of both organizations’ vision to expand the show’s appeal to a wider cross-section of buyers while expanding accessory offerings to existing convention visitors.
