Steps to Exhibiting at the NASGW Expo

Posted by NASGW on 1/12/21 8:45 AM

Those who have been in the shooting sports industry long enough have undoubtedly heard of NASGW and the Annual NASGW Expo. The Expo is the premier event for wholesalers and manufacturers to connect, discuss sales results from the current year, introduce new products, and plan sales for the upcoming year. It is an efficient week for manufacturers and wholesalers alike. They get a few days to meet with as many partners as possible, all in one location, and without the involvement of consumers or dealers, so it’s a very “focused” opportunity.

August Legislative Update from the NSSF

Posted by NASGW on 8/24/20 2:18 PM

NSSF’s Government Relations Team dedicates its time and resources to supporting legislation beneficial to our industry and fighting those bills that infringe on our rights to legally conduct business and compromise everyone’s Second Amendment rights. Team members attend legislative hearings on the federal, state and local levels year-round across the nation, keeping their finger on the pulse of those issues affecting us.

Though there has been significant good news for our industry, hunters and the shooting sports with the passage and signing of the Great American Outdoors Act, it was, unfortunately, counterbalanced by the long-expected announcement from New York’s Attorney General Letitia James that she’s filed a lawsuit to dismantle the National Rifle Association. Add to that the selection of California Senator Kamala Harris as the running mate to the now official presidential nominee of the Democratic party, Joe Biden, and there’s no doubt the gloves are off. Clearly, the time remaining before November’s national elections is going to be one in which talk of advancing gun-control will take center stage.

During this event we also recognize excellence within the shooting sports industry through the NASGW Appreciation Awards and the NASGW-POMA Caliber Awards. This industry event would not be possible without the help and support of our sponsors. NSSF continues to be a great partner and we appreciate their commitment to our organization and the wholesalers, manufacturers, vendors, and media members that make up our membership."

“We’re pleased to once again support our partners at NASGW,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President & CMO. “NSSF appreciates our participating member companies and we remain fully committed to supporting our industry’s two-step distribution business model and the key role that wholesale distributors play in helping manufacturers go to market.”

The NASGW Expo will be held on October 20th through 23rd at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Conference Center in Grapevine, Texas. The Expo is the premier event for shooting sports wholesalers and manufacturers to review current market conditions, forecast future sales, and plan for the upcoming year. In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the NASGW Expo will be even more crucial to the industry with the cancelation of other events earlier this year. This will also be the first opportunity for manufacturers to introduce new products to their wholesale partners and lay the groundwork for the upcoming sales cycle and beyond. It is a closed event for NASGW Members only which creates a very productive business environment for Expo attendees.
