Working with Event Genius: Nick Maddix, Director at Northern Angling Show


Written by , 19th April 2017


Launched in March 2013, the Northern Angling Show plays host to over 14,000 attendees who are there to see 150 exhibitors and appearances from some best known figures in the fishing industry.

The growing Manchester based trade-show, which held its 5th show at Event City the start of April, is the brainchild of Nick Maddix and two close friends who wanted an indoor angling event that they didn’t have to drive 4 hours south to attend.

The Event Genius team caught up with Nick for a quick chat about his experience with our services and tools at this year’s event:

EG.) How did you find Entry Genius? Was it easy to set up your device, download your data and keep it up to date with the latest tickets?
