Budapest, Hungary, has been chosen to host the 36th edition of the European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition. Other cities considered were Leipzig (Germany), Riga (Latvia), Vienna (Austria) and Barcelona (Spain). The show will take place from the 29th June to the 1st July 2017.


EFTTEX 2017 will be hosted in the Hungarian capital of Budapest for the second time after being a very successful show in 2009 when more than 7,000 sqm was sold. Hungexpo is a very popular and modern venue. It’s located only 15 minutes from the international airport and 4 km from the centre of the city. Thanks to its natural beauty, architectural artworks, relaxing atmosphere and entertainment opportunities Budapest is a great place to be during the exhibition.


The Hungarian capital last played host to the showpiece in 2009 when it welcomed more than 1.500 visitors and 233 exhibitors.


EFTTEX 2016 is already sold out and that’s why exhibitors are invited to book their stands for EFTTEX 2017 during the show in Amsterdam (16th to 18th June 2016) to secure a stand in Budapest. The popularity in exhibiting at EFTTEX proves how important the show is for the industry. If you want information and details on EFTTEX sponsorship opportunities please contact EFTTEX Manager
