2014 Paintball Extravaganza Run-Through (inside look at dealer only trade show)

Here's an inside look at the 2014 Paintball Extravaganza.

We highly recommend anyone in the paintball business make this show one of your "must attend" events of the year. There's an invaluable amount of paintball knowledge to be absorbed at one of these events.

What would you like to see better coverage of for next year?

Cool! Thanks for the video! Always wondered what Extravaganza looked like...

Man, I wish I could go

We figured there were people here that would want an inside look. We don't do it justice, but it gives you an idea.

I think you see at least four of our moderators in there too, even though there were even more on site...

It is a shame this is a dealer only show.
I think it would be awesome if this made this open to the public so we can see what is going on first hand with new gear.

Maybe open up one day of the event for the public and let the dealers handle business for the rest of the event?

There's not much really for sale on the spot there. I don't think that would work with the current model.

This is great. Thanks for giving us an inside look. Was there anything you walked across in the video that we have yet to hear about?

I wonder what excites dealers the most about Extravaganza. I imagine the classes, workshops, and discussions to be a great resource for field owners and smaller vendors. I'd love to see what the breakout sessions/workshops are like, although I'm not sure how close a look you'd be able to give us into those.

It's interesting to see the demeanor of particular vendors as you walk by them. Are they giving you the stink eye because they know you or because they would rather not appear approachable?

Would it be possible for you to move the camera faster so that ALL of the video is blurred together?

Great video, thank you for posting this. It did show me the size of the industry/participation by retailers and manufacturers. When was this video shot? Morning of the first day or prime time? Not to be disrespectful of any manufacturer of fine equipment, but from this rough pass it seemed that Tippman/GI sports and Dye were the only ones who understood/serviced the retail industry. At least everything they showed at the convention would see the light at a retail location. I am not talking about product, I am talking about the peripheries/ displays that help sell product at retail..

Next year I hope to go, so long as it is in the same location!

I thought it sucked compared to last year. The venue was so small. Last year there was more to see as well as more room to walk without tripping over people, plus everything was reasonable (hotel wise). If it stays at the Hyatt, I doubt i'll go next year.


I have heard thru the grapevine that the industry is trying to get a southern location for up coming events or combining the event with World Cup, which kind of makes sense since a lot of our new gear is released in the fall anyway.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
