Dear Fly Fishing Industry Leader,
We would like to personally invite you to exhibit at the 50th anniversary for the International Fly Fishing Fair. The Federation of Fly Fishers was founded in Oregon, so this year we return to our roots by holding the Fair in Bend. The Fair will be at the Riverhouse Hotel and Convention Center and will be open August 11 – August 15. The Exhibit Hall days and hours will be: exhibitor set-up on Wednesday August 12 and the Exhibit hall hours will be Thursday August 13, through Saturday August 15, 2015 from 9am to 5pm.
The Fly Fishing Fair is the IFFF’s yearly education and fundraising event. Held annually it attracts attendees from across the country and around the world. The Fair offers workshops, programs, demonstrations on fly tying and fly casting, fly fishing tactics, aquatic entomology, fly rod building, angling ethics, water safety and many related topics. Also offered are youth activities, women’s programs, hour long presentations, photo contests, author book signings, auctions, raffles, and much more.
A major feature of the Fair is our exhibit hall where fly fishing companies, retailers, artists, travel services and other companies who cater to the fly fishing lifestyle share new innovations, and sell products.
If you’re interested in having an exhibit space, fill out and return the enclosed 3-page Contract. We encourage early sign-up as there is limited space and those spaces will be sold quickly on a first come first serve basis.
