Belgium manufacturer NTEC was delighted with the response to its carp terminal tackle on the first morning of EFTTEX. But the industry newcomer so very nearly never got a space at the show.
Making a late decision to exhibit in Amsterdam, company co-founder Nick Nossin discovered there were only two booth spaces left in the RAI Exhibition Centre.
“We knew other people were interested so I called EFTTA immediately and booked both spaces,” he told Angling International. “We are on the end of an aisle with traffic coming from both directions, so we are very happy.”
Nossin and fellow partner Niels Ciezkorski have almost 30 years of serious carp fishing between them. They are targeting the specialist end of the market with premium tackle for difficult waters.
The business, which has attracted more than 30,000 Facebook followers in the last six months, has introduced a first wave of products designed to establish a foothold in the sector, but is now working on others that it says will “change the market completely” in 2017.
“We don’t want to reveal too much at the moment, but we can say it is a very special product and there is nothing comparable out there,” added Nossin.
The carp fishing partners are interested in meeting potential distributors from both east and west Europe on their booth (B95).
NTEC is hopeful that its entry for the Best New Product Awards – a fast-sinking, hard-wearing, Teflon-coated hook length called HERO – will further develop the company’s growing reputation.
