With hundreds of big brands – and more still signing up – a string of features, a plush new venue and advice-packed seminars from industry leaders, there is plenty for everyone to get excited about at this year’s T&G Trade Show.

There is such a wide range of things to see and do during the event at the new venue – the Ricoh Arena, Coventry – that it’s just as well it is running over two days – Sunday and Monday, September 11th and 12th.

It’s not gone unnoticed by potential visitors either – more than half of those who have already pre-registered for FREE tickets have not been to the event before. That’s terrific news for exhibitors, of course, because they will have new dealers to sell to.

While a quick look at the profile of visitors suggests that they are coming to look at product ranges across the board, meaning buyers will be open to a string of market sectors.

Airgun retailers and shops selling general coarse fishing tackle make up a significant proportion of pre-registered visitors, with plenty also expressing interest in carp fishing, shotguns, firearms, knives and country clothing, among others. There’s even a good percentage keen on finding archery gear.

And they won’t be disappointed… there are top coarse and carp tackle brands like Maver, Frenzee, Taska, Nutrabaits, Kyrston, Rod Hutchinson, Dynamite, Solar, Reuben Heaton, Gardner, Fladen, Dinsmores, Pallatrax, Navitas and Vass, plus many more.

On the fly fishing side, look out for RIO, Sage, Redington and more under the Guide banner, Snowbee, Veniard and Dragon Tackle.

Shooting shops can see vast ranges and top brands via distributors like John Rothery Wholesale, Range Right, while airgun sellers will enjoy seeing BSA, Daystate – with an exclusive launch – Air Arms, MTC Optics, Midland Diving and more.

There are new shotguns from Cogswell & Harrison, country clothing from Bonart and Treesco and eyewear from Blu Eye and Fortis.

Knives are well represented in the list of visitor interests and they will be catered for with Casström and BA Blades, while lighting fans can enjoy BB Investments with COAST and MyFenix.

Alongside literally hundreds of key brands, visitors will also be able to see plenty of niche sectors looking to become more mainstream.

Airsoft is a growing sector and the T&G Show represents a unique opportunity to see some of the biggest players in the industry, all in one place.

You can try out airguns – including a brand-new one from Daystate being exclusively unveiled during the weekend – on our dedicated ranges, put the latest fly rods to the test on our casting pool, or compare poles on Maver’s special pole alley.

You’ll also have the chance to vote for your favourites in the fantastic and popular New Product Showcase at the front of the show.

One key feature that visitors will love this year is the seminar area.

Andrew McMillan from the John Lewis Partnership will be one of the key speakers in a stellar line-up, and he will be offering his expertise on customer service strategy.
