IFTD returns to Salt Lake City – its home for nearly a decade


The American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA) has announced that the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show (IFTD) will return to the Salt Palace, in Salt Lake City, Utah, from October 20th to 22nd this year.

After cancelling last year’s trade show, AFFTA is bringing the industry back together in 2021, and returning to Utah, one of the outdoor capitals of the world, and the location of the IFTD for nearly a decade beginning in the mid-1990s.

Jim Bartschi, the AFFTA Chair, said: “It has been a year of change, for both the fly fishing industry and AFFTA. Thankfully, we can now see the light at the end of the COVID tunnel and we are ready to get back out on the water and do business together.

“I’m really excited to have this event back on my calendar. IFTD is the fly fishing industry’s premier event for meaningful business-to-business engagement, networking, education and community building. Connecting with old friends and making new ones at IFTD is one of the things I really look forward to each year.”

Exhibitor registration and floor plan details will be available soon. Attendee registration and housing blocks will open this summer. A full schedule of events, seminars and social get-togethers will be announced over the coming months. Information will be shared at www.affta.org and via newsletters and social media channels.
