With less than three months to go before this year’s Trade Show, AFTA has been busy making this year the biggest and best year yet. Over 75% of the exhibitor space has been sold – with many new wholesale companies joining us bringing with them their exciting new and innovative new products from Australia and Overseas.

AFTA Members and Guests can register for free – Click here to register to attend this year’s Show. Join us in making this the biggest and best year to date.

Exclusive show only special flight and accommodation deals
With this year’s Show earlier than last year and because it falls within the school holidays, AFTA is pleased to be offering you Show Only Specials for travel and accommodation packages.

AFTA has partnered with Virgin Australia and Flight Centre to bring you exclusive travel and accommodation deals to suit any budget.

We will also be announcing entertainment packages closer to the Show so you can bring the family and make a holiday of your time in the Gold Coast.

This year it's new gear:

This year’s Trade Show will focus on New Gear entering the Australian market. Every wholesaler in Australia release hundreds of new products and this year many of these will be launched at the AFTA Trade Show.

AFTA wants to promote this fact by making more of the new and innovative products released at our Show. As such the Best in Show Award area has been extended – last year to had a record number of entries (over 200!), this year we are expecting even more.

Exclusive show only New Gear promotions:

Many of these products are unique to the Australian market, or fresh from release overseas. We will be working with our exhibitors to ensure our attendees at the Show know all about these new and innovative products. To do this we are:
• Having a bigger and better Best in Show display area;
• Revamping our Best in Show Awards; and
• Having greater promotion of the Best in Show winners and contenders at the Show.
AFTA will also be asking each exhibitor to give us a sneak peak of the New Gear and we will promote the products to the Retail sector through our online trade newsletter prior to the Show – this will give our attendees a look into what they will see at the Show… if you aren't registered to attend do it now so you don’t miss out!
NEW Product Magazine
We also intend to extend the promotion of our Industry’s new product beyond the Show by implementing a number of new initiatives. These include:
• An online NEW Product Magazine – showcasing the AFTA Show winners and contenders directly to the consumer; and
• A Consumer Launch of new product at a leading public ‘outdoor activity’ event.
More on these exciting initiatives will be revealed at the AFTA Show – but you have to be there to find out about more.


Can You Afford Not To Be There?
By attending our Show you will be able to see hundreds of new products from Australia’s leading fishing, boating and outdoor companies. What makes our Show unique is that you can see all these products in one place at one time. This gives any retail business a competitive advantage. Can you afford not to be there?

The AFTA Trade Show is our industry’s Official Show. Where else in Australia can you see hundreds of new product from over seventy of Australia’s leading Fishing trade, Boating and Outdoor companies.
