High ticket de­mand likely to push vis­i­tor num­bers be­yond 20,000

Angling Times (UK) - - NEWS -

THIS year’s Big One show looks set to be a record breaker.

With a new venue, ad­vance ticket sales up 20 per cent and VIP packs al­most sold out, The Big One 2018 is al­most cer­tain to be the big­gest ever in the 27-year his­tory of the event.

A new venue in Farn­bor­ough, Hants, and more ex­hibitors has con­trib­uted to the in­creased de­mand for tick­ets, ac­cord­ing to or­gan­iser Vince Davies.

“I am con­fi­dent that last year’s fig­ure of 20,000 vis­i­tors will be eclipsed this year,” he said. “The new ex­hi­bi­tion cen­tre in Farn­bor­ough cov­ers 18,000 square me­tres and will hold 200-plus ex­hibitors, two theatres and a lure an­gling and boat area.

“On top of all this there’s an­other floor with a huge cater­ing area, li­censed bar and seat­ing space

“Vis­i­tors will once again be able to buy dis­counted tackle, meet the an­gling’s stars and learn new ways to im­prove their fish­ing – all in a spa­cious en­vi­ron­ment.

“This is why The Big One Show will be event of the year.”

As usual, vis­i­tors will get to meet some of the great­est names and tackle com­pa­nies in the in­dus­try, in­clud­ing Steve Ringer, Martin Bowler, Korda and Pre­ston In­no­va­tions – and all will be on hand over the two days to help with any an­gling ques­tions you may have.
