The 2019 Progressive Insurance Saltwater Fishing Expo ended its three-day run on Sunday, reporting attendance for 2019 was comparable to last year at 13,131, and up 11 percent from the three-year average of 11,828.
The Saltwater Fishing Expo, which took place at New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison for the second year, hosted more than 230 exhibitors, many of which reported strong sales, especially in the fishing gear sector, heading into prime fishing season.
The 2019 Expo featured free daily seminars lead by nationally-recognized experts, and included appearances from National Geographic’s hit reality-television show Wicked Tuna Captains Paul Hebert and Dave Carraro headlining the seminar series. Additional highlights included the fishing simulator, the Great White Shark challenge, and the Casting Pond, where experts were on-hand to teach casting techniques.
