“OPKIX is the convenient, hassle-free wearable camera for the water-centric outdoor enthusiast who wants to capture their fun of fishing and beyond. They don’t want to risk breaking or dropping their phone in the water and hate the hassle of an action cam, “ said Bart Hall. “Fisherman can attach OPKIX to their favorite eyewear and hat accessories to capture their moments of pride and recognition.”

Hobie will also be presenting its “Hobie 360 Mirage” featuring the “Kick-Up Fins that is taking the future of kayaking in a new direction - forward, backward, sideways and every degree in between.” Guests will have the opportunity to test drive the 360 in the Hyatt Lagoon.

“It is extremely unusual for a show, like the Fred Hall Show, to last for 74 years,” said Bart Hall, Producer of the Fred Hall Show. “The only way to last this long is to take every exhibitor seriously, treat their business as you would your own and always give your attendees exactly what you promise. Part of our business model is to always give a family a full days worth of family entertainment. Kids 15 and under are always free at a Fred Hall Show.”
