NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits recognized among top trade shows by two industry media groups
FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association Annual Meetings and Exhibits has been recognized by the Trade Show News Network (TSNN) as one of the top 25 fastest growing trade shows in the United States, based on net square feet of paid exhibit space, for the second consecutive year. Also for the second consecutive year, the NRA’s premiere event has been named one of the top three political events to attend in the United States by BizBash, the largest media source for event, exhibit and convention professionals.
“We are pleased to again receive this recognition from TSNN and BizBash. NRA’s Annual Meetings and Exhibits provides value to our exhibitors who continue to benefit from our trade show format,” said Jeffrey Poole, NRA’s Managing Director of Shows and Exhibits. “This opportunity for our exhibitors to create meaningful customer relationships with our attendees leads to growth in our event and ultimately results in positive growth for our industry.”
Ranked 112 among TSNN’s top 250 Trade Shows, the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits draws more than 75,000 attendees to a three-day celebration of shooting, hunting and outdoor traditions treasured by millions of Americans and their families. Attendees can explore more than nine acres of exhibit hall space featuring hundreds of exhibitors and products from every major firearm manufacturer in the country, book the hunt of a lifetime in the exclusive outfitter section, and view collections of priceless firearms in the gun collector area. In addition to the draw of the exhibit hall, members can attend countless speaking events with the country’s top political leaders, fundraising auctions, seminars, concerts and other special events.
