2023 Consumer Choice Fly Fishing Show New Product Submissions Now Open
The Fly Fishing Show Consumer Choice Awards will be open for voting and hands-on participation at the six fly fishing shows scheduled for 2023, jointly announced by sponsors The Fly Fishing Show, Angling Trade and Fly Fusion Magazine.
The awards recognize and reward research and development that brings new products to market that continually improve the angling experience. Winners of the Consumer Choice Awards will be voted on by fly fishing consumers – the everyday users of these products.
Entry to the competition is free for all exhibitors at the Fly Fishing Show 2023. With the addition of four new categories, there will be 39 “Best-of” categories: from rods and reels to waders and polarized glasses. Product submission opened on September 26 and will continue until December 15 through an online process.
Nominations for the awards will be presented online and exhibitors will have the opportunity to connect directly with consumers at the shows throughout the voting cycle. Similarly, consumers will have the opportunity to see, touch and test the products before voting for their favourites. Online voting will be open to the public from January 20 to March 10, 2023.
Winning products will be announced at the end of voting and winners will receive a “Consumer Choice Awards” icon for use in advertising, in-store displays, product packaging and other marketing efforts throughout 2023.
Fly Fishing Show organizer Ben Furimsky adds, “Our goal is to recognize the hard work of all manufacturers and service providers who continually seek innovative ways to improve the variety of products and services available to fishing enthusiasts. on the fly. What makes the Consumer Choice Awards unique is the opportunity for consumers to see and test the 2023 entries in person at our events across the country.
