Orchid to Sponsor NASGW Expo Appreciation Dinner

The National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW), the association representing wholesalers, manufacturers and trade partners of shooting sports, is pleased to announce that Orchid will sponsor the NASGW Expo Appreciation Dinner on October 25 in Kansas City.

“Dealers in our industry play a critical role in the firearms supply chain,” said Jon Rydberg, CEO of Orchid. “We are proud to continue to support both NASGW and NASGW SCOPE in their efforts to meet demand while providing FFLs with critical analytics that improve inventory decisions. We look forward to engaging with the association and Expo attendees this October.”

Orchid’s support of NASGW extends beyond Expo 2022. Orchid has partnered with NASGW to contribute data to SCOPE CLX, NASGW’s retail analytics platform for the shooting sports industry.

“Over the years, Orchid has partnered with our organization in a variety of ways, most recently through SCOPE CLX and NASGW Expo 2022,” said NASGW President Kenyon Gleason. “We appreciate your continued support and partnership, and look forward to another great Expo Appreciation Dinner 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. 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.
