Nomad and Huk Return as Longbeard Sponsor for NWTF Convention and Sport Show
EDGEFIELD, S.C. — The National Wild Turkey Federation welcomes Nomad and Huk as Longbeard Sponsors 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.
“Sponsoring the National Wild Turkey Federation show is a key part of our outreach efforts every year,” said Chris Russell, vice president of marketing at Marolina Outdoor. “The members of NWTF are some of our most important customers. This show marks the kickoff to turkey season, and we are always excited to attend the event and talk with people committed to conservation and turkey hunting. This is where we collectively get geared up for a new season.”
Nomad and Huk — the notable outdoor brands based in the NWTF’s home state of South Carolina and sponsors of the NWTF convention since 2016 — are return sponsors of the convention’s Pub Crawl as well as the Waterin’ Hole. They also will occupy booth 401 in the exhibit hall.
“Nomad and Huk are such valuable supporters of NWTF’s mission and especially our Convention and Sport Show,” said Natalia Daniels, NWTF national director of corporate relations and licensing. “Once again, they are helping us provide the Pub Crawl and Waterin’ Hole for attendees to have an exceptional experience at our show. Nomad continues to have a major presence in our exhibit hall and provides essential gear for spring turkey hunting.”
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 450 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.
