Europe’s Biggest and Best Carp Fishing Show

Do you love carp fishing? Are you a beginner or an expert? Are you a static carp angler or do you prefer to be mobile? Fishing on the bottom, float or floater fishing? For every type of carp angler, Carp Den Bosch is the place to be. You will find everything that you need to help you catch carp. From rods and reels to end tackle and bait, you will find it all (and we mean all). If you cannot find it at Carp Den Bosch 2024, it probably does not exist!

From Zwolle to Den Bosch

After 24 shows in the IJsselhallen-Zwolle, we had outgrown the venue and in January 2023, we successfully moved Europe’s Biggest and Best Carp Show to a new home in the Brabanthallen in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.

This was definitely the right move, as we finally have enough space for all the companies who wanted to attend and wider pathways for our visitors, to help them get around!. There is also plenty of room to expand the show if necessary.

The Brabanthallen, with its’ modern and recently refurbished halls will now play host to Carp Den Bosch into the future. We will be using 24,000 m² of the exhibition space at Carp Den Bosch 2024, which is 4,000 m² more than we had at our previous location. This still leaves room for expansion, as the Brabanthallen has up to 55,000 m² if we need it!

‘s-Hertogenbosch, better known to the Dutch as ‘Den Bosch’, is the capital of the Dutch Province of North Brabant. The show is now known as Carp Den Bosch to reflect this and is easier to say as well!

19, 20 and 21 January 2024

As ever, Carp Den Bosch 2024 will be held early in the year so that you can see all that is new and get your shopping done before your first session of the season.

The doors will open on Friday 19, Saturday 20, and Sunday 21 January 2024 at 09:00 each day and will close at 17:00 on Friday and Saturday and on Sunday at 16:00.

28 years and still going…

The ‘Carp’ show was first held in 1995 in Houten, we moved to the IJsselhallen-Zwolle in 1997 where we held ‘Carp Zwolle’ for the first of 24 consecutive years. 2024 will be the 28th time that we have ‘kicked off’ the carp fishing season. This is something of which we are extremely proud. By concentrating purely on carp fishing and carp anglers, the show has steadily grown to the mega-event it has become today.

No other Carp-only event can match the size or terrific atmosphere of Carp Den Bosch. No other show is as well-known across the World as ours – the 2023 show received more than 16,500 visitors from 29 different countries. Visitors from America to Romania and from Norway to Italy prove that!

24.000 m² of carp pleasure

In the Brabanthallen, we have the use of more than 24,000 m². This is 4,000 m² more space than we had in Zwolle. This gives us the chance to make the paths wider than before and gives stand holders the opportunity to have larger stands than previously. It also gives us the ability to reduce the number of stands that were on the waiting list.
