Fishing, fly fishing and aquaristic

March 8 – 10, 2013 Organizer:

AQUA-FISCH 2013: Cast your line even further South Germany’s largest flagship exhibition fair in fishing, fly fishing and aquaristic is gearing up for the next round. In 2012, around 20,400 visitors from the border triangle of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, countries with great purchasing power, flocked to the exhibition ground on Lake Constance. The good atmosphere, together with the latest innovations, inspired more than 83% of them to make a purchase. By participating in AQUA-FISCH, you are choosing a top-class event that offers exhibitors and visitors alike fantastic value, and meets all their diverse demands.

Fishing and fly fishing Fishing and fly fishing are considered very important activities in the area around Lake Constance and near the Messe Friedrichshafen. Take the opportunity of introducing your products at AQUA-FISCH to interested members of the public. The fair includes expert subject-specific fora, and various trials and casting courses which are certain to generate excitement among the visitors.

Exhibitor comments: Ulrich Beyer, owner of Angel Ussat: “The Aqua-Fisch was good. We registered a light increase in traffic over last year and are pleased with the number of international visitors. There were an especially large number of customers from Austria and Switzerland. The combination of a weak Euro and a strong Swiss Franc certainly had a noticeable effect this year.”

Uwe Büchelmaier, owner of Anglermarkt GmbH: “Our exhibition program has been very well received. As a regional dealer, it is important for us to show our presence here. Next year, we are going to increase our exhibition space.”

Aquaristic AQUA-FISCH is THE essential annual meeting place for all fans of aquaristic. The exhibition grounds in Friedrichshafen, with their up-to-date infrastructure, allow you to present your product range in a most professional light. Pass on the enthusiasm for the hobby aquaristic to a highly interested and expert audience – and you will gain new customers. AQUA-FISCH is complemented by a diverse supporting programme, making it even more attractive. Exhibitor comments: Jürgen Kleinmann, manager of operations at Kölle-Zoo GmbH: “For us, this year’s Aqua-Fisch started very strong. The number of visitors on Friday was already well above expectations. Like every year, we had a lot of visits from our regular customers in Switzerland and Austria. We were pleased with the quality of the discussions with our neighbors.”

Gert Himmer, First Chairman of the Aquarium Club Multicolor Ailingen e.V.: “For us, everything went very well, as always. The trade show staff provided very strong, friendly support. 176 meters of sales space and fifty different sellers of hobby fish and animals is a new record. The broad selection of shrimp, crabs, fish, plants and books was a big hit.”
