GSM Outdoors Joins NWTF Convention and Sport Show as Longbeard Sponsor
EDGEFIELD, S.C. — The National Wild Turkey Federation welcomes GSM Outdoors as a Longbeard Sponsor for the Convention and Sport Show, set for Feb. 15-19 in Nashville, Tennessee. This year’s festivities mark 50 years of mission delivery for the NWTF.
“As passionate turkey hunters and conservationists ourselves, our relationship with NWTF is very important to us, and holds a very special place in our hearts,” said Tayler Riggen, GSM Midwest regional sales manager. “Being able to celebrate 50 years of wild turkey conservation, and the rich history of the National Wild Turkey Federation, is something we are really looking forward to.”
GSM Outdoors became a first-time sponsor in 2022, but many of the companies under its umbrella have sponsored or exhibited at convention in the past. As a part of its sponsorship, branding for GSM Outdoors heavyweights like Avian-X Decoys and Zink Calls will be present in portions of the Convention and Sport Show, and the brands will be represented at booths 1313 and 1321 in the exhibit hall.
“We are honored to have GSM and their family of brands as a sponsor for our show,” said Natalia Daniels, NWTF national director of corporate relations and licensing. “They are an industry leader who knows what wild turkey enthusiasts need for success in the spring turkey woods. Be sure to visit their booth in the exhibit hall.”
The first event of the NWTF Convention and Sport Show, officially sponsored by Mossy Oak, is the Pub Crawl set for the evening of Wednesday, Feb. 15. Convention festivities officially open on Thursday, Feb. 16 with the rendezvous sessions, the evening’s Kickoff Party and the opening of the Sport Show floor, which features more than 500 of the best exhibitors in the outdoor industry. The NWTF Sport Show runs from Thursday to Saturday in the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. Convention festivities conclude with a worship service on Sunday, Feb. 19.
