Paddlesports Retailer began with a very simple concept - create a high-quality tradeshow for paddlers, by paddlers - held at a time of year when retailers can actually attend and in a location that is affordable and accessible to most of the country. Thus, Paddlesports Retailer was born.
We invite you to join us in Madison this fall to discover for yourself why Paddlesports Retailer is the official tradeshow of the paddlesports industry! Visit www.paddlesportsretailer.com for more information
