New CIFTE Show
The first Chinese International Fishing Trade Exhibition (CIFTE) opened its doors early June in Suzhou, near Shanghai.
Angling International was the only global recreational fishing trade magazine to attend the event. It was run alongside the Suzhuo Shanghua domestic show, which celebrated its tenth anniversary. Both events were organised by the Chinese Fishing Tackle Association (CFTA).
The international trade show had its own professional trade complex and altogether the whole arena comprised nine halls on two levels.
Among the exhibitors at the event were: Mustad, Shimano, emerging Chinese brand, Crony, awardwinning hookmaker, BKK, and Italian-based line OEM, Gruppo.
