On Tuesday 11th November, the annual CARP ZWOLLE press conference took place in the IJsselhallen Zwolle, the traditional home of Europe’s largest annual carp show. The purpose of the press conference is to inform stand holders and the fishing press about the upcoming CARP ZWOLLE 2015 show, which takes place on 7 & 8 February 2015. Exhibitors also had the chance to show their new products to the gathered members of the press.
For the Dutch carp angler, the CARP ZWOLLE show has become the carp fishing season’s kick off. These days, the show has become so large and has such an international appeal that it is important that the organization is optimal.
CARP ZWOLLE 2014 received almost 15,000 visitors, so Mick Paine’s task, as show organizer, is to make sure that the 20,000m² of Exhibition space is completely used and 150 stand holders expected to attend the 2015 show are well positioned to allow the free flow of visitors throughout the show. The opening times have been extended to allow the visitors more time to visit all the stands.
Last year, the organizers completely revamped the website and logo to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary edition. The website was translated into 4 languages and was extremely well visited and we are sure will be even more popular this year. The German language section of the website will get even more updates and attention than before, to reflect the amount of visitors who cross our Eastern Border to be at the show.
