The NASGW Expo Impact on the Shooting Sports Industry

Posted by NASGW on 9/11/18 8:00 AM

It is that time of year where shooting sports wholesalers and manufacturers are starting to prepare for the upcoming year. We may still have a few months left in the year, but planning out product launches, sales strategies, budgets, and marketing plans to promote products doesn't happen overnight. That is where the NASGW Expo comes into play. The NASGW Expo is a four-day event that brings together wholesale buyers and manufacturers to layout the sales plan for the next year. This event is closed to the public and attendees must be members of NASGW. The Expo is where the business side of the shooting sports industry happens. This year's Expo will be held in Pittsburgh, PA and we are all looking forward to seeing old friends, getting a pulse of the industry, and discussing ways to improve in 2019.

Posted by NASGW on 8/10/18 4:25 PM

Each year our team at NASGW walks the show floor to meet new exhibitors and check in with long time exhibitors. We really try to listen and understand how their year is going but more specifically, how their time at the Expo is going. Manufacturers who have been attending the show for years and have established relationships with NASGW wholesalers are usually pretty busy with sales meetings yet the newer manufacturer members are anxious to connect with as many wholesalers as possible.
