AS Watersports visit the Kanu Messe

Ewart and Jim are just back from a visit to the Kanumesse exhibition in Germany. Kanumesse is the largest European trade only kayaking and canoeing show. Its the place lots of companies show off their new kit, boats and accessories. Plus it's also a great place to see new and different products.
The Show is held in Nurnburg in southern Germany, and takes place in part of the Nurnburg Messe, the largest indoor display space in Europe. The show site is enormous, it make the NIA or NEC look like a pimple!
As well as catching up with all our regular suppliers we also got to see some exciting, different and new European products. There seems to be lots of smaller equipment manufacturers popping up in Eastern Europe, making some funky new gear. None of it is being brought into the UK yet, but some of it might be available soon!
Here's a few pictures that the boys got while looking around the show.
