ICAST 2017 Recap

ICAST 2017 was held in Orlando the week of July 10, 2017, where Senior Category Manager Marty Plazo and Category Manager Tyler Bennett attended the event. One takeaway from the show is that Kayaks and Paddleboard Fishing is probably the fastest growing part of the Fishing/Marine Market, with the support of over 15 different kayak vendors participating in the show. In addition, more companies are going from strictly paddle to pedal options to electric motor options.

One of the key features of the show is the New Product Showcase. Once again, there was plenty to see with close to 200 samples in the New Product Showcase. Many of the vendors who work with NBS were awarded Best in Show for their category. Here is a list of some of the best new products from ICAST. Be sure to check these out in our vendor’s booths during the Fall Semi-Annual Market next month!
