The New Jersey Fly Fishing Show – a fixture at the Garden State Exhibit Center for 25 years – will move to the nearby New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison next year.
The announcement was made by Fly Fishing Show President and Chief Executive Officer, Ben Furimsky. “The antiquated Somerset facility is being converted to other uses and will no longer be used for shows,” he said.
The new Edison Fly Fishing Show venue, the largest in northern New Jersey, is about ten miles away from the former show site.
“The Edison facility gives us 2,000 free parking spaces with an additional 3,000 in close proximity,” said Furimsky. “There is more than 140,000 square feet of space available, which will be divided into a giant exhibitor display area, casting ponds, seminar rooms and other show requirements. We now have the space to expand,” he added.
Edison is off Route 440, some 15 minutes south of Newark Liberty Airport, 40 minutes from midtown Manhattan and about an hour from Philadelphia.
