2011 Expo Floor Plan

Following is the current floor plan for the 2011 International Custom Rod Building Exposition. While minor changes and/or additions are likely to take place over the next couple of weeks, what you see here is pretty much what you’ll see in person on February 26 &27, 2011.

Out of necessity, the exhibit hall has been enlarged this year. Many exhibitors purchased additional booth space for the 2011 event (they’re bringing more “stuff” for you to see!). Therefore, two formerly false walls have been removed which will make the hall a bit longer overall and a bit wider in the southwest corner.

I’ll update the plan in a couple weeks as I pencil in the last few exhibitors. See you there!

    Beautiful! Thanks. Course it looks a lot different in 3D with all the companies, rod builders and blanks and components!

    It may be old hat to you at this point but I hope you know just how important and what a big deal the Expo is for us rod builders. I hope you continue to hold this event for years to come. It is really something to experience. I try to come out at least every other year. Will be there this year.

    It is really great that the worldwide custom rod building craft has this single unifying event to take part in each year. A testament to what the craft has grown into in the past decade.

    The EXPO is Mecca for custom rod builders. Best dang rod building event on the planet.
