Expo Booth Info

Dear Exhibitor:


The 2014 Forrest Wood Cup presented by Walmart is heading to Columbia, SC, and Lake Murray August 14-17. As bass fishing’s biggest event, the Forrest Wood Cup features the world’s best anglers competing for the sport’s largest awards and the industry’s premier outdoor expo.


The FLW expo will be housed in the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, a modern facility that features convenient parking, affordable full-service hotels and access to non-union labor, plus daily weigh-ins will be held in the Colonial Center, which also features free parking.


Hundreds of exhibits and boat displays will fill the expo along with interactive displays made especially for children. More than $100,000 in fishing gear and sponsor samples will be given away to visitors during this FREE-admission event that is promoted through a yearlong effort that intensifies in the weeks leading up to the show, which is sure to attract tens of thousands of fishing enthusiasts who are eager to buy the latest gear.


National television coverage will air on the NBC Sports Network and WFN as part of the “FLW” show, which is also broadcast internationally to more than 429 million households in the United Kingdom, Europe, Russia, Australia, Africa, Asia, Canada and the Middle East.


It’s an event you can’t afford to miss.


Cost for a 10-foot booth is $950 and space is limited, so reserve your spot now. Expo dates are August 15-17, 2014, with load-in beginning August 13 and load-out August 17 (following the show) and August 19 until noon.
