Scheduled to take place from 24th to 26th February at the Vicenza Expo Centre, the Show will present the most innovative proposals from the market's top brands, an infinite number of demo areas and interesting informative and confrontation moments. 

Pescare Show is the absolute reference point for a sector that, in Italy alone, counts 1,650,000 anglers, the vast majority aged between 25 and 54, as well as 150 companies dealing in sports fishing equipment and 1,481 specialized stores throughout the national territory with an overall estimated revenue of 420 million Euros.

Pescare Show: everything for fishermen 

A show that is rapidly growing for a sector in constant development. The next Pescare Show event  follows in the wake of a 2017 edition that welcomed 15,000 visitors, +14.5% compared to 2016. This growth trend also regarded the number of exhibitors, which reached 209, an increase of almost 16% compared to the 180 of the previous year and more than double if compared to 2011. The involvement of leading category associations, sports federations and fishing schools also contributed to achieving these positive results.
