SOTA Trade show Canberra AUSTRALIA.

Despite the current economic climate this years 2009 SOTA (Snow & Outdoor Trade Association) Trade show was great for all involved.
This year as last, I represented kayak4play as the importer of fluid kayaks in Australia. Despite falling numbers in attendance, the buyers were there for business. The Fluid kayaks range growing in interest from last year, as many an interested buyer would haggle me over the features of the product and price, all walking away impressed at what the 2009 range had to offer. Leigh manning the K4P Booth also had a great deal of interest in the Astral, Immersion Research, H2o Paddle and Heliconia Press range of products. Picking up some exciting new dealers for the Australian consumers.

Despite all the business talk and negotiations, when it came close to the end of the day, everybody was only interested in one thing…free beer…
It Just so happens that the Fluid solo Expedition fits 3 cases of beer in the back + Ice (not that I would know…) Drawing a very dedicated crowed including the editors of CUMEC and outer edge magazine, paddle sports Australia and many more keen to be part of the action…

Don’t listen to a word I say about the products, Go to your local dealer and jump in and give it a go…. You will be glad you did…
