Not so long ago, the Fatyak™ team travelled, equipped with a supply of our locally made kayaks, to the PaddleExpo trade show at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre in Germany.
The PaddleExpo show is the leading paddlesports-exclusive trade fair globally. With its debut in 2003, all the newest paddlesport products and trends including kayaks, canoes, boards, and inflatables can all be found here amongst a sea of keen buyers, manufacturers, retailers, media, and other associations. Additionally it has come to serve as a key player in the distribution of information regarding rentals, events, and water sports tourism.
Bearing all this in mind we simply couldn’t say no! The team took to the water with the view to spreading the good news of our fantastic range of paddlecraft to a crowd of like-minded individuals. It was the team’s first time exhibiting alongside premium kayaks and water sports brands, and as such it was fantastic exposure for us being able to show our UK made Fatyak™ kayaks to a global market. The quality of our manufacturing did us proud as we were matched up against many big players – and ultimately our presence was well received!
It’s always been a tenet of Fatyak’s™ existence that our range is fun, affordable, and family orientated – and such a set of points resonated particularly well with the show; we could see that there was a focused area of interest in our products. Our sledge-bodyboard crossover, the Hono, was a real star of the show however; as there was quite simply nothing else like it there.
As a result of this year’s success at the show, the team can’t wait for a return in 2016 from the 7th to the 9th of October; see you there!
