Well this is strange, isn’t it? ICAST week is upon us, but nobody is boarding flights. On Tuesday, nobody will be testing new products on the water outside of the Orange County Convention Center. On Wednesday, the cavernous building will likely be empty—devoid of the thousands of tackle buyers and manufacturers who usually pack its halls (along with the annual youth basketball convention in the adjacent one). Nobody will be attending bass-thumping happy hours or glass-clinking dinners at Maggianos or Del Frisco’s. The dance floors at Lafayette’s Music Room and B.B. King’s Blues Club will be vacant as well.

And you know what? That’s okay. Like everything else this year, ICAST 2020 is going to be different.

If you’re a veteran attendee, you’ll have to break your usual routine of familiar faces and places. If you’re a rookie, you’ll need to navigate a maze of virtual events and links that get you from one must-see to another.

That’s where we come into play. This week, FTR is gathering the most important links for ICAST 2020 and updating them to this page.
