Vancouver, WA, November 24, 2013 – International Sportsmen’s Expositions (ISE) is pleased to announce a major expansion to its 13-year-old Arizona consumer show, held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, site of the 2015 Super Bowl. The 2014 ISE event, February 20-23, will feature large indoor displays of sportfishing and pleasure boats, with related marine products and services. 250 exhibiting companies from throughout North America will fill more than 160,000 sq. ft. of stadium space.
“Valley boat dealers want to present their 2014 product lines of powerboats, fishing boats, skiing and recreational boats, and personal watercraft early in the new year, in one convenient venue,” said Brent Layng, ISE new-business manager. Recreational boat sales in Arizona are an $80 million annual business and have increased in recent years, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
“The four-day ISE is Arizona’s largest selling event all year for fishing and outdoor products, services and destinations, attracting sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts from throughout the valley and region,” Layng noted.
