Building the NRA Annual Meeting's exhibit hall in Houston
Houston, Texas - Before more than 70,000 NRA members arrive at Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center tomorrow for the 2013 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, a lot needs to be set up.
More than 550 exhibitors spent the entire day assembling their booths and tidying everything up to show off their latest wares. You're in for a treat when you step onto the exhibit hall floor this weekend. With more than 30 additional exhibitors and 100,000 more square feet of space, you could probably spend the entire weekend wandering up and down the aisles.
And honestly that wouldn't be such a bad idea, but you'd miss out on so many other great activities like the air gun range, speaking events, seminars and so much more.
Take a look at the pictures below to see just how bustling it was today on the floor. We bet you won't recognize it once all the televisions have been turned on, the racks have been adorned with polished firearms and tens of thousands of wide eyed NRA members are walking around.
Can't wait to get in there? It's just a little longer. Here are this weekend's hours:
Friday, May 3, 2013 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 4, 2013 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Sunday, May 5, 2013 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
