As you may know Paddle Expo 2020 was cancelled due to the pandemic, leaving no paddle sport -show this year.
Bundesverband Kanu, the industry association here in Germany, noted with concern the open announcement of three new c paddle sport trade shows and the considerations of additional players. There was a real concern of fragmentation within the industry.
We are convinced that the German-speaking paddle sport trade needs only one event where the key market participants are represented.
We have joined forces with Pro Wave – Stefan Bretthauer, who had planned the “Paddle Board Expo”. The Bundesverband Kanu will organize the new PaddleDays.
The PaddleDays will replace the Paddle Board Expo.
PaddleDays | Kassel Exhibition Ground | September 25/26th 2021
The new format is supported by the leading German suppliers. A significant number of international exhibitors and customers have also already signaled their participation. We have already had very positive personal discussions with many of you.
Back to the roots of the Rosenheim Paddling Days – that is the credo, so to speak. The focus is clearly on the topic of canoe-kayak accessories in a manageable, yet professional environment.
The main visitor group is the canoe trade, as well as canoe tourism businesses and canoe schools. Only companies that address this clientele and have a functioning sales and service network in Central Europe will be permitted to exhibit. The Bundesverband Kanu represents many of these companies. We would be pleased to welcome you as an exhibitor at the PaddleDays and, if possible, as a member of BV Kanu.
