We are in process of finalizing our schedulesand will be posting it on all our social media platforms. I’m excited we were able to come up with a plan to at least offer a little something to our valued vendors andallow them to showcase their products and services ina unique and fun way”
About the East Tennessee Fishing Show:
For over 30 years the Fishing Show has been held in the Knoxville area, with several owners and various locations the success of the show had been up and down to the point of failure.
In 2010 a new owner Shelia Bunch stepped in with a drive, passion and determination to create the best fishing show of its type in the Southeast.
The first thing that took place was the show was renamed “The East TN Fishing Show”. The next step was to rebuild the show with exhibitors and boat dealers with a 100% focus on the fishing industry. Each year there was steady growth which ledto reaching full capacity at The Jacobs Building and a waiting list of exhibitors. Due to the increasing demand the decision was made to move to the Knoxville Expo Center, with over 90,000 square feet of available space. The new facility allowed a more stream-lined move in and out for exhibitors as well as being in an area that is more convenient to restaurants and hotels.
With being the first year at the new location it was never expected to reach full capacity for 2016 but two months prior to opening daythe event was sold out of exhibitor space with a waiting list for 2017.
Our main goal is to provide you with a worthwhile fishing event to attend for all fishermen that have a passion for fishing and is fun for the whole family.
