Chairman's Message: Summer Has Arrived

Posted by Brad Burney on 5/29/18 10:52 AM

Brad Burney - NASGW ChairmanI hope you all had a great Memorial Day and got out to enjoy the unofficial kickoff to summer. I also hope you took a moment to reflect on the real meaning of this holiday. The BBQs and sunburns are great, but we wouldn't be able to enjoy them without the sacrifice of many.

As we all transition into summer, we are hearing a lot of great things about what's happening in the industry, and we hope that continues through the rest of the year. At NASGW we are moving into the home stretch for this year's Expo in Pittsburgh, PA. Our team is hard at work preparing, and we want you all to know that there are still a handful of booths available if you are considering attending.

The NASGW Expo is a unique venue where wholesalers and manufacturers can focus on getting business done, without distraction. We also want to remind you about many great opportunities still available during our time in Pittsburgh. There are many ways to gain more attention for your brand through the sponsorship opportunities at the convention center or Range Day. We encourage you to review those sponsorships and see what might be a good fit for your business. 

Speaking of Range Day, we learned a lot last year so this year will no doubt be bigger and better. We've arranged transportation to and from the range and opened the entire day up instead of breaking the day into two sessions. Both of these will make it easier for you to attend and get hands-on experience with all the products. Range Day is specifically designed for wholesale buyers to learn more about the products you are buying and selling, so don't miss this.

In closing, I want to reiterate that big things are on the horizon at NASGW, whether it is the Expo or the upcoming launch of SCOPE™, NASGW and two-step distribution are ready to help launch our industry into the future. We can't be more excited about how the relationships that NASGW continues to foster will shape the industry in the years to come. But in the meantime, get out and enjoy the summer.


Until Next Time,


Brad Burney

NASGW Chairman
