ASA Launches Its Fourth Outdoor Sports Show in February

The Greater Philadelphia Outdoor Sportshow opens on February 25

For more than 30 years, the Eastern fishing shows have served hundreds of thousands of sportsmen and women and thousands of exhibitors in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic areas.

The new Greater Philadelphia Outdoor Sportshow February will be held 25–28, 2010, at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks, a short drive from downtown Philadelphia.

The new show will serve the more than six million fishing, hunting and outdoor sports enthusiasts who live in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware region. “Times are tough, but that’s all the more reason to get outside and enjoy the simple pleasures that can be found in our great outdoors. Fishing and hunting can be learned by anyone at any age and a sport show is a great place to start,” said ASA President and CEO Mike Nussman.

With the addition of the Philadelphia show, ASA/Eastern Fishing & Outdoor Exposition will produce four East Cast consumer shows in 2010. ASA also has a partnership with West Coast-based Fred Hall & Associates who produce the Fred Hall Tackle, Boat & Travel Shows in Long Beach and San Diego.

“Sportsmen and women will be well served by this new Philadelphia show,” said ASA’s Consumer Show Director Jonathan Sauers. “Between ASA and our East and West Coast consumer shows, we have more than 100 years of experience in providing a showcase for the best there is in the fishing, hunting and marine industries. We are going to produce a first class show that will be a key destination for exhibitors and attendees alike.”

The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks is one of the largest privately owned exhibition centers on the East Coast with 220,000 square feet of exhibitor-friendly space and is just 20 minutes from central Philadelphia.
