The International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, better known as ICAST, is the world’s largest sportfishing trade show annually hosting 9,000 members of the sportfishing industry representing 70 countries. ICAST is produced by the American Sportfishing Association (ASA), the sportfishing industry’s trade association, which looks out for the interests of the entire sportfishing community. ICAST is the premier showcase for the latest innovations in fishing gear, accessories and apparel and is the cornerstone of the sportfishing industry, helping to drive sportfishing companies’ product sales year round.
The International Fly Tackle Dealer Show (IFTD) will be co-locating with ICAST this year to make the world’s largest fishing show even bigger!
Only at ICAST can you visit hundreds of manufacturers and evaluate thousands of products all under one roof.
Top Five Reasons to Attend
New Product Showcase - The New Product Showcase offers exhibitors and buyers a special opportunity to debut and preview hundreds of the next season's innovations in fishing gear and accessories. Buyers and Media-editorial badge holders have the opportunity to evaluate each new product and vote for the prestigious "Best of Show" awards in 22 product categories.
View All Major Product Lines at ICAST - Want to stay ahead of the game? ICAST is the only trade show where major manufacturers display their entire product lines.
ICAST-only Specials - ICAST show specials offer buyers strong incentives to save money by striking deals at the show. In 2012, nearly a third of all ICAST exhibitors offered show specials providing high and low rollers significant product discounts.
Buyer Raffles - Each time an order is placed with an exhibitor, a buyer increases his or her odds of winning the ICAST Buyer Raffle. Buyers can win cash prizes or one lucky buyer will win the jackpot, a trip for two to Crocodile Bay Resort in Costa Rica.
Networking Opportunities - Business still revolves around face-to-face meetings. There's no place like ICAST to connect with industry leaders and build or maintain relationships with people from around the globe.
Only at ICAST can you meet with thousands of dealers, hundreds of outdoor media representatives and expand your global business network.
ICAST is a trade-only show and not open to the general public. Manufacturers typically exhibit at ICAST or they may attend as non-exhibiting member manufacturers. Exhibitors must be members of the American Sportfishing Association. Wholesalers, retailers, manufacturer’s reps, advertising and industry associates, government affiliates and members of the media are welcome to attend the show.
