FightLite to Sponsor NASGW Expo Happy Hour

The National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW), the association representing shooting sports wholesalers, manufacturers and their trade partners, is pleased to announce that FightLite will be sponsoring an NASGW Expo Happy Hour on Wednesday, October 26th in Kansas City, MO.

“The NASGW Expo provides attendees a great opportunity to connect with industry decision makers during events like our Happy Hours on the show floor,” said Kenyon Gleason, NASGW President. “The Expo would not be possible without great partners like FightLite sponsoring our Happy Hours. We appreciate their support and look forward to seeing all of our members in Kansas City.”

The NASGW Expo will be held on October 26 – October 28 at the KCCC (Kansas City Convention Center) in Kansas City, Missouri. The Expo is the premier event for shooting sports wholesalers and manufacturers to review current market conditions, forecast future sales, and plan for the upcoming year.

“Of the various outdoor industry events that we participate in throughout the year, the NASGW Expo is generally the one that we look forward to the most. For us, it’s the kickoff event for both the fall sporting goods season and for reconnecting in person with our excellent wholesale & distribution partners,” said Geoffrey Herring, President & CEO of FightLite Industries. “NASGW is also where we introduce our new products, and this year it’s our exciting new, patent-pending HERRING® Model 2024 – Modern Lever Action rifle. As a company that’s committed to 2-step distribution and our partnership with NASGW, we’re looking forward to a great week in Kansas City and are proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Happy Hour.”

The NASGW Expo is one of the most productive events within the shooting sports industry. It is a closed event for NASGW Members, creating a very productive business environment for Expo attendees. Exhibitors and attendees value the smaller, meeting focused event that provides a one of a kind opportunity to connect with their partners in a short period, to plan for the year ahead.
