Hungary’s premier carp and feeder show goes online this week
Hungary’s premier carp and spinning show will take place virtually for the first time tomorrow.
The popular Ponty Show, which in normal times attracts 13,000 visitors from across eastern Europe, was cancelled in its traditional form last month due to the escalating COVID-19 pandemic. However, an online version has been organised in its place and will open its virtual doors on Friday until Sunday. The focus this year will be on domestic companies that include Energofish, Haldorado, Feedermania. and many other smaller brands. Energofish has been an exhibitor at the event since it started in 2009 with its joint venture Ponty Show retail partner, Duplakukac. Its Product Development Manager, Sándor Sujkó, told Angling International: “The show has grown in recent years and as well as carp and feeder, it also includes exhibitors from the predator fishing sector.
“The timing – early November – is important as it gives anglers a chance to look at new products for the forthcoming season. It is good that we are still able to do that despite the traditional show being cancelled.” Presentations will appear on the event’s website and Facebook pages and there will be an opportunity for anglers to buy products online.
There will also be an online Exhibitor Area, which can be joined by paying a fee and gives angers an opportunity to buy items at special prices.They will also be eligible to enter a free draw with the chance of winning tackle items.
Sujkó added that Energofish will be showing live demonstrations of its new products alongside outdoor fishing presentations. “We are looking forward to showing off our new products, but also to a time when life gets back to normal so that we can do this in the traditional way. Exhibitions are the engine of the industry and there is nothing better than making contact with anglers at shows. The firsthand information from experts and pro anglers is second to none. From a company perspective, they are also important to gauge the state of the industry and information about market trends and demand.”
