The outdoors is truly a world-spanning space filled with opportunities for everybody, no matter skill level or age. If you’re looking for adventure, the International Sportsmen’s Expo (ISE) is your trailhead. The annual ISE returns March 21-24 to WestWorld of Scottsdale.
Now featuring the largest-ever selection of recreational vehicles in the show’s history, the new 200,000-square-foot Good Sam Pavilion will also include seminars, entertainment and special events.
In the North Hall, vendors will spotlight outdoor products and services, plus regional and international fishing and hunting destinations. Valley marine dealers will offer special pricing on fishing and sport boats, SUP’s, personal watercraft and accessories. The 2019 ISE will include the greatest number of marinas since the event began, offering visitors the opportunity to plan water-based recreation around the state.
Outdoor enthusiasts will be treated to a variety of show attractions, nearly all of which are FREE with show entry. Top pros will share fishing techniques at the 40-ft. Aquarium Tank. Dan Kidder, the Gear Guru, will host and answer questions at the expanded Outdoor Product Showcase, where visitors can check out and sign up to win gear every day of the event.
Just outside the hall, visitors can test drive ATVs and UTVs at the Kawasaki Track. Also outside, fun activities and events for the entire family include a climbing wall, zipline and, back again for 2019, DockDogs, the premier canine-aquatics competition that features dock-diving dogs in distance, speed and vertical jumps.
“We want to give enthusiasts everything they’re passionate about in one location,” said Brian Layng, Expo CEO and President. “From the skilled adventure to the newcomer, our event brings expert lessons and top products to conquer the wild.”
