The International Sportsmen’s Expo Features Entertainment, Gear, Destinations and Experts

If it can be done outdoors, it probably can be found at the International Sportsmen’s Exposition and Arizona Boat Show (ISE). Arizona’s 18th annual event returns March 22-25 to WestWorld of Scottsdale. 

Outdoor enthusiasts will be treated to a variety of show attractions, nearly all of which are FREE with show entry. The Action Water Sports giant Watersports Pond spotlights pro wakeboarders, thrilling fly-board experts and stand-up paddleboard demos. Top pros will share fishing techniques at the 40-ft. Aquarium Tank. Visitors can test drive ATVs and UTVs at the Offroad Track. Free fly-casting lessons, too. Show-goers can seek treasure during an on-site geocaching adventure. Local celebrity Todd Jostes, the Wilderness Man, will offer free clinics on survival techniques, tools and natural medicines at the Wilderness Camp. Dan Kidder, the Gear Guru, will answer questions at the Outdoor Product Showcase, where visitors can check out and sign up to win gear. Archers can watch or enter the Best-of-the-West finals at the High Impact Archery three-dimensional-target range.

Fun activities and events for the entire family include a climbing wall, giant zip-line ride and, new for 2018, DockDogs, the premier canine aquatics competition that features dock-diving dogs in distance, speed and vertical jumps.

“Our goal is to bring everything you love about the outdoors to one location, and the 2018 Scottsdale International Sportsmen’s Expo will do that better than ever before,” said Brian Layng, expo CEO and President. “Whether you’re a skilled adventurer, weekend warrior or newcomer, you will find the expert advice, top products and destination you need to master the outdoors.”

The International Sportsmen’s Expo is home to the Valley’s only boat show, the Arizona Boat Show, which will feature its largest selection ever. 16 dealers will offer 44 brands and more than 120 boats from sport to pleasure to fishing models, plus rafts, inflatables and stand-up paddleboards.
