The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry, takes great pleasure in announcing that the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) has become a Silver Sponsor of the 2015 SHOT Show University retailer education seminar.

An organization of business leaders representing firearms wholesalers, manufacturers, independent sales reps, media and other likeminded organizations and service providers, NASGW is an important voice and networking platform for those in the firearms industry.

“The partnering of NASGW with NSSF in supporting SHOT Show University speaks volumes about the commitment we all share in providing the resources firearms retailers and range owners need to conduct their businesses responsibly and profitably,” said Patrick Shay, NSSF Director, Retail Development. “The success of our retailers is the success of the industry as a whole, and we are very pleased that NASGW has joined us in sponsoring an event so important to those businessmen and businesswomen.”

The premier event for firearms retailers and range operators, SHOT Show University is always a sellout. Scheduled for Jan. 19, 2015, the day before the show opens, SHOT Show University will begin with an opening address from renowned executive coach Dr. Linda Talley. From there, University attendees will attend a series of classes in one of four educational tracks: ATF Compliance, Drive Your Sales, Retailing 101 and Veteran Retailer. The day will conclude with a presentation from Afterburner Inc., business performance and planning experts.

New for 2015, NSSF is providing one complimentary ticket to the event for qualifying Premium Retailer members. More information on this special offer will be emailed to those qualifying members in the near future. Additional tickets, as well as tickets for those wishing to attend who are not Premium Retailer members, are $250.
