Fresh momentum for the 20th Hunting Gent show, Belgium’s largest hunting and nature fair!

From Friday 21st until Sunday 23rd April 2017 in Flanders Expo, Ghent (Belgium)

Monday, February 13, 2017 — If there is one place where you can (re-)discover all the latest news and everything there is to know about the world of hunting, game and nature in a pleasant setting, it has to be Hunting Gent. The largest fair of its kind has been popular with hunting and nature aficionados in the Low Countries, Northern France and the Eifel in Germany for many years. Every year, the fair always attracts the most interesting and passionate exhibitors and visitors, but also novices and people who enjoy new experiences and discoveries are equally welcome. The many professionals at this fair represent a host of sectors, including 4x4s, hunting weapons, optical instruments, décor and much more. 

Why Hunting Gent?
Hunting Gent is the largest fair for anyone with a keen interest in hunting, game and nature.  The new organisers have pulled out all the stops for the fair, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, with exhibitors and events for people of all ages, to cater to everyone’s tastes and interests. But obviously, Hunting Gent is also true to its name, meaning all the major brands and essential hunting accessories will be represented at this year’s fair. All the ingredients for an exciting event, in other words. Find out about the latest new products or learn more about the basic gear a perfect hunter needs from many of the enthusiastic professionals who have a booth at the fair.

An emphasis on outdoor activities
Hunting Gent wants to provide every visitor with a unique experience, which is why the fair is also hosting several outdoor activities. Impressive demos with dogs, falcons and 4x4s will be organised, and visitors can also try their hand at archery, gun engraving, taxidermy and even sounding a hunting horn. For Hunting Gent, offering only the best for professional and amateur hunters, novices and seasoned hunting fans is a matter of principle. The fair also organises family-friendly activities.

What can I see and do at Hunting Gent?
The advantage of this trade fair is that a large number of industry partners will be gathered in one location. The fair’s exhibitors have everything from hunting weapons (parts and accessories), dogs and hunting accessories to the newest 4x4s (and quads) and optical instruments. Several associations will be represented as well as the organisers of nature hunting trips. On a more lyrical note, Hunting Gent also has included an introduction to art, literature, luxury and lifestyle from the world of hunting, nature and game.
