Leaders of the Professional Outdoor Media Association, the Outdoor Journalist Education Foundation of America, and the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers have partnered to host the third annual Shooting Sports Showcase at the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s Talladega Marksmanship Park in Talladega, AL, on Tuesday, March 28. The Showcase is a private event giving firearms and archery industry representatives a day to showcase new products to dealers, wholesalers, and members of the media, at one of the most impressive shooting venues in the country.
In addition to a variety of pistol, rifle, and shotgun ranges, the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park has a spacious five-lane archery field. Each lane includes a 10’ x 10’ tent and a 6-foot table for archery companies to display and demonstrate their newest products. Contact Thomas MacAulay at email@example.com for more information.
Attendees are invited to a meet-and-greet Monday evening after exhibitors set up and prepare for the Showcase. “This pre-event gathering gives everybody a chance to relax and reconnect before shooting begins on Tuesday morning,” said POMA Executive Director Thomas MacAulay. “This extra time together was very well received last year because it set the tone for a great day of shooting.”
“We’re excited to cohost the Shooting Sports Showcase again this year,” said NASGW President Kenyon Gleason. “The Showcase is a fun, productive, and efficient way to do get lots of business done in a short time.”
OJEFA CEO Lisa Snuggs said, “Seeing media members make connections and gather story material for their various outlets has always been one of the best parts of my job in the outdoor communications business. The Showcase is a super event for firearms-related media to get informed and have fun at the same time.”
