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

“NASGW Expo provides attendees with 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 wouldn’t be possible without great partners like FightLite sponsoring our Happy Hours. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing all of our members in Kansas City.”

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

“Of the various outdoor industry events we participate in throughout the year, the NASGW Expo is usually the one we look forward to the most. For us, it is the kickoff event for both the fall sporting goods season and to reconnect in person with our great wholesale and distribution partners,” said Geoffrey Herring, President and CEO of FightLite Industries. “NASGW is also where we introduce our new products, and this year it’s our exciting new HERRING® Model 2024 rifle, a patent-pending, state-of-the-art lever-action rifle. As a company committed to two-step distribution and our partnership with NASGW, we look 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 in the shooting sports industry. It is a closed event for NASGW members, creating a very productive business environment for Expo attendees. Exhibitors and attendees appreciate the smaller, meeting-focused event that provides a unique opportunity to connect with your partners in a short period of time, to plan for the year ahead.
