COLUMBIA, S.C. — Each year the Berkley Experience Trailer continues to bring new and exciting things to consumers. This year is no different, redesigning the entire trailer for a better experience all around. In its 9th consecutive year, the Berkley Experience kicked off the season in Bristol, Tenn. on February 6-8.
Initially, consumers will notice the difference with a brand new wrap on the exterior and a completely redesigned interior. Once inside the trailer, kids and adults can experience the rich history of Berkley. Onlookers can also examine, for the first time, a look inside the Berkley labs in Spirit Lake, Iowa. It's here where many of the innovative products we use today were first painstakingly research and studied.
There is also a timeline of key products, an updated fish biology section and all new educational videos on Berkley products. The walk through will also display how the products were developed from the ground up.
Four highly trained Berkley professionals are on hand to provide more in depth knowledge on products, knot tying, line selection and how to select the best baits to Catch More Fish.
"We are extremely excited about the upgrades to the Trailer and the experiences that anglers of all skill levels will have this year," said Andrew Marks, Berkley Marketing Director. "Our Experience Trailer team is ready to answer your questions and help anglers of all ages and skill levels learn about fishing, our passion and our company's heritage".
We have many new stops this year including four B.A.S.S. Elite tournament locations. You will be able to follow the trailer on our Facebook page along with our website.
"The Berkley Experience Trailer is such an integral part of our dedication to angler education that we have designed a page on our new website to bring as much of the trailer experience as we can into homes internationally," said Chris Hockley, Berkley Brand Marketing Manager. "On the page, visitors see photos, trailer videos, fun facts and much more."
