For three days next month it will be a magnet for anyone and everyone in awe of spending leisure time in, on or under the water – the great playground of the Bay of Plenty.

It’s the Tauranga Fishing and Boat Show at Baypark Arena – TFABS as it’s become known – and starts on Friday, November 2. It runs all weekend, from 10am to 6pm each day.

It’s an opportunity for everyone associated with the water recreation industry to collectively showcase their products or services, and for those who love to be in, on or under the water, there’ll be a glittering array of offerings on display.

There’ll be boats, jet skis, kayaks, dive equipment, fishing tackle, paddle boards, spearfishing, trailers, outboard motors and kayak fishing – and you have three days to pick over the best and the latest the industry has to offer.

Tauranga is a mecca for water sports. We all live around, near or on the water, and coupled with the healthy economic and population growth within the Bay Of Plenty region, it is an ideal location for fishing, boating and numerous other water activities.

The Tauranga Fishing and Boat show is a wonderful place to start living the dream.

Apart from all the toys at the new format show, there will be seminars, displays and all the information you need to safely enjoy time on the water this summer.

Looking to the future, TFABS 2019 has already gained interest from a number of new exhibitors, along with a number of potential new sponsors.
