Scottsdale, AZ -( Get your outdoor adventures started at Arizona’s largest fishing, hunting, boating and travel consumer show.

The International Sportsmen’s Exposition and Arizona Boat Show (ISE), is back, has moved to the vast, 386-acre WestWorld of Scottsdale even center, and more than doubled in physical size to spotlight the products, destinations and services of more than 300 exhibiting companies.

Arizona’s 16th annual ISE will fill WestWorld’s North Hall and the Multi-Use Tent, also offering large displays and show features outdoors. Show dates are March 10-13,2016.

The Valley’s top marine dealers—more than 15 of them–have will present more than 40 boat brands and 120 sport, recreation and fishing boats. The Arizona Boat Show will also spotlight kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, flyboards, marinas and marine-accessory exhibitors.

In addition to hundreds of displays with gear and adventures, outdoor enthusiasts will be treated to a variety of new show attractions, all free of charge. Check out the Action Water Sports’ giant “Rail Jam” pond for pro wakeboarders and stand-up-paddle-boarding demos. Test the latest-model UTVs and ATVs at the new Offroad Test Track, presented by Kawasaki and other major brands. The new Lowrance Electronics Learning center will teach anglers and boaters how to use marine electronics, classroom-style and with real units. A 40-ft.-long, bass- and catfish-filled aquarium tank serves as center stage for pro-led fishing and kayaking seminars. Attendees can also get fly-casting instruction from local experts, and samples of rattlesnake sausage from The Sporting Chef, Scott Leysath. Audubon Arizona will offer wildlife-watching seminars, and the Arizona Taxidermy Association’s State Championship will showcase stunning artistic displays of fish and game in natural settings. The Adventure Theater offers hourly seminars by local and national fishing, hunting, camping and outdoor experts, including Dan Kidder, Gear Guru and host of the show’s Outdoor Product Showcase, which features outstanding new gear and daily giveaways.

There’s plenty of hands-on fun for kids, too, including two catch-and-release fishing ponds and archery and casting games, courtesy of Bass Pro Shop. Plus a climbing wall and zipline (fee). Attendees wanting to support a great cause should stop by the Springville-Egan Chamber of Commerce outdoor exhibit to see the new truck and trailer they might win by supporting the Boys and Girls Club.

“We had grown our event to the point that we no longer had adequate room for all our displays at the Glendale location,” said Brian Layng, ISE CEO and President. “WestWorld provides the perfect amount of space to cater to exhibitors and attendees during peak visitor season. Our first Scottsdale expo will offer an unprecedented selection of outdoor products and services, plus adventure destinations in Alaska, Canada, Mexico, South Africa and across the West.”
