The Kanumesse, which claims to have become the most important trade show for canoes and kayaks in the world, reports another record in the number of exhibitors at its next session, scheduled for Sept. 18-20 in Nuremberg, Germany. There will be more than 170 exhibitors on a gross surface of 13,730 square meters, up from 163 firms last year. The SUP-Expo, the largest trade show for stand-up paddling, will be part of the event. Because of the strong visitors' traffic of last year, the show will last one hour longer on Sunday and Monday, running from 9 AM to 7 PM. It will end at 4 pm on Wednesday like before. Visitors will be admitted free of charge if they register prior to the show online at www. paddleexpo.com. Previously a section of the OutDoor fair in Friedrichshafen, he Kanumesse has been growing steadily since its start in 2003 in the village of Rohrborf with only eight exhibitors on 120 square meters.
