Next year the Helsinki International Boat Show – Vene 15 Båt is focusing more on lure fishing. In addition to boats and boating accessories, this time the event displays a wider variety of fishing equipment and gear. One of the novelties at the event is a Rapala 3D fish tank and acknowledged fishermen are invited to the event to show their fishing skills. Vene 15 Båt is held 6-15 February 2015 at Messukeskus Helsinki.
This time Vene 15 Båt offers plenty for fishing. “Lure fishing is very popular. It requires seagoing boats, motors, special electronics, and, of course, suitable fishing gear. Appropriate clothing for the harsh and unpredictable environment is a must, not forgetting safety. In this line of sports boats and other equipment need constant maintenance. The Helsinki International Boat Show – Vene 15 Båt is the perfect place to see what is new on the market, compare products and make purchases”, explains Sales Manager Håkan Löfgren from Messukeskus Helsinki.
