Bow wow: IWA claims recordsThe IWA OutdoorClassics enters its 44th year with a new record of 1,515 exhibitors., with most coming from outside Germany.
Eight out of ten exhibiting companies and around two-thirds of trade visitors come from countries other than Germany, which makes the event one of the most international fairs at the Nuremberg exhibition venue year after year.
The leading international exhibition for hunting and shooting sports, outdoor equipment and civilian and official security needs was opened on March 3 by the Bavarian Minister for the Interior, Joachim Herrmann.
The archery shooting range is among the most popular demonstration areas, report organisers.
Trade visitors can test out their marksmanship with bow and arrow and try out the crossbow to experience the fascination of silent shooting at first hand.
