African Events Inc. announces changes to the show format and locations for its 2015 Canadian based hunting events

After hosting three successful shows in Canada earlier this year (Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto), African Events Inc. announces exciting changes and expansion plans for it’s events set to take place in 2015.

The Calgary, Alberta based show being hosted at the Carriage House Inn for the fourth year running is to become the ‘flag ship’ of the three shows and will include exhibitors and outfitters from all countries around the world. Included in the line-up will be hunting, fishing, photographic and tourism related vendors from across the globe.

A new show in the line up for 2015 will be hosted in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the neighbouring province to Alberta. Saskatchewan is the 2nd largest oil producer in Canada and the people of this province were raised on hunting in their back yards, making this an ideal new venue to market hunting on the ‘dark continent’. This show will focus solely on hunting & fishing products, accessories and outfitters related to Africa.

The Ontario based show now in its 6th year, will be moving location to the city of Barrie, Ontario to coincide with the opening of the new Cabela’s hunting store. Barrie is Ontario’s fastest growing city and is ideally situated to be accessible to both hunters from the north and south of the province. This show is set to expand in the form of incorporating more hunting & fishing related accessories, taxidermy displays, knife makers, optics, guns and the likes.

African Events Inc CEO Birgit Johnstone says “these exclusive boutique style shows, which offer hassle free booth set up and tear down, provide a solid platform for outfitters to promote themselves to the Canadian hunter.”

The planned changes and expansion will distinguish African Events Inc from its competitors. Event organizers anticipate a substantial increase in attendee numbers, providing exhibitors with a cost effective marketing platform from which to reach the lucrative emerging Canadian market.

Confirmed dates:
Calgary 23, 24 & 25 January 2015
Saskatoon 30 & 31 January 2015
Barrie 13 & 14 February 2015
