2017 Bassmaster Classic Expo

Houston, Texas

IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE BASSMASTER CLASSIC

Booth sales are now open for the nation’s leading outdoors expo — the annual Bassmaster Classic Outdoor Expo presented by Dick's Sporting Goods — which is set to take place March 24-26, 2017.

In recent years, tackle and lure companies have been using the Classic Expo as the venue to introduce their newest products to bass fishing fans. The 2017 Expo will cover more than 300,000 square feet, the largest in Bassmaster Classic history.

Arguably the largest event of its kind in the country, this exhibit of the latest in bass fishing equipment and outdoor gear will be housed in the George R. Brown Convention Center. 

For the ninth-straight year, Dick's Sporting Goods will be the presenting sponsor for the Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo. 

B.A.S.S. expects the 2017 event to draw some of the largest crowds in tournament history. More than 107,000 people attended one or more venues during this year’s Classic in Tulsa, Okla. The event has averaged more than 102,000 in attendance over the past five years. 

Officials at host cities have reported an economic impact from the event ranging from $22 million to nearly $24 million. 

Featuring free admission to the public, the Outdoors Expo presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods will be open 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, March 4, as well as 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.  

On Friday only, national and international media, B.A.S.S. Life members, B.A.S.S. Nation members and DICK’S Scorecard members will be invited to a special “Preview Event” at the show from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
