Paddling Business 2019 Product Guide & Show Guide
Produced by the Rapid Media in partnership with Paddlesports Retailer, the Paddling Business 2019 Product Guide and Paddlesports Retailer Show Guide covers new and featured products, exhibitors, industry news and events throughout and following the show. Print distribution to the industry at the show and subsequent digital distribution delivers your products and critical industry information to North American retailer buyers, outfitters and editorial media for unmatched preseason buying and promotion.
Display advertising and featured and new product listings in the 2019 Product & Show Guide allow you to speak to buyers now, exactly when their buy-sell cycle begins and when purchase decisions are being made. Reaching retailers through a combination of the 2019 Product Guide and, if eligible, the New Product Showcase and Paddling Magazine Industry Awards is the most cost-efficient, targeted and effective means to enhance your 2019 sales program.
