Words and pictures by Patricia Boer:
I was talking to Quest Baits owner Shaun Harrison about this and he explained that Quest Baits had been very fortunate in its growth and have always been able to sell everything they make so haven’t had to go out to find new markets.
He explained he had websites in different countries but now felt it only right to start exploring some of the other countries close to the U.K. Quest Baits now have a much larger production and storage capacity than ever before.
So, having struck a deal to allow F.N.E. Trading in Amsterdam to distribute the range through the Netherlands he was delighted to hear that they would be showing a good selection of the Quest Baits range at the mighty Carp Zwolle fishing show.
With visitors from all over Europe this is the place to be, if you want to promote your bait.
Being a Quest Baits consultant Frans Nestor from F.N.E. Trading invited to come along and help out at the show. I travelled through a very icy Holland to get to Zwolle and be at the Carp Fishing Show on the 4th & 5th of February.
My job? Share my experiences on Quest Baits with the many visitors.
Together with a couple of other enthusiastic people we worked hard throughout this weekend in an effort to make the visitors more familiar with the boilies, pellets, pop-ups glugs & dips of the Quest Baits range. A range of baits which is distinguished by the use of pure ingredients, as you yourself would in the kitchen.
The reactions of visitors to the stand were very positive and resulted almost every time in interesting conversations on people’s individual view on carp angling.
The highlight of the weekend was the introduction of Quest Baits newest addition to the range, the Magnum White. Tested in England with very good results by Shaun Harrison and a few selected friends.
Looking back on this weekend, I think it is safe to say that Quest Baits made a great debut at the show and we’ve made good progression on promoting it!
