This is what our past exhibitors have to say:

"The Eastern Consumer Shows are a very important part of Daiwa’s marketing presence. It is one thing to see pictures of a product online or in a catalog but these shows put our products in the hands of our target audience, the anglers. The shows are very well organized, promoted heavily, and as a result, receive tremendous traffic. We plan to participate in their shows every year."
Curt Arakawa, Marketing Manager, Daiwa Corporationexhibitor image

“Great shows!  All of your Northeast shows were great but Somerset was completely off the charts.  2012 was very good, 2013 we thought it can’t get any better, and 2014 was simply amazing.  Your shows get better every year and my manufacturers get more and more exposure because of it.  The Eastern Consumer Shows are an essential part of our marketing plan.  See you in 2015!"
- Sean Loy, Alliance Sports Marketing (representing Okuma, Savage Gear, Igloo, Mustad)

“Thanks for an awesome show (in Somerset, NJ). We are in for next year and want to double our space."
