New Ulm, Minn. – The Archery Trade Association announces that registration is now open for the exclusive ATA 2023 trade show. This year’s members-only event is January 11-13 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. The official ATA hotel block is also open. Press registration opens on September 27.
“The ATA Show is the premier archery event of the year, putting more buyers in front of more sellers than any other show,” said Jeff Poole, ATA President and CEO. “It’s also the best place to network, view the latest products and take advantage of educational opportunities, all under one roof.”
Over the past five in-person events, the ATA Show has averaged over 600 exhibitors and over 8,000 attendees. ATA’s 2022 post-show survey indicated that 74% of exhibitors planned to launch at least one new product at the 2023 show.
Attendees can view the latest equipment, find new vendors, take advantage of exclusive Show offers and participate in educational opportunities. Masterclass 2023 sessions will be presented by industry experts, seminars will be offered to help retailers navigate the current business climate, and informal coffee chats will take place on the show floor.
Dedicated specifically to verified buyers and exhibitors, Buyer’s Day kicks off the Fair on Wednesday, January 11. Buyers have the floor to themselves, providing plenty of opportunity to conduct business and network with exhibitors. All other badge types, including members of the press, media, non-profit and support members, representatives of state agencies, and non-exhibiting manufacturers, may access the show floor on Thursdays and Friday.
“Connections”, a celebration of the ATA archery industry and happy hour, also returns and takes place on the first night of the Show. Entertainment for the event, including an opening act and headlining performance, will be announced later this summer. Drinks and food will be provided at this popular industry networking event.
Floor plans are also available for exhibitors and attendees. Exhibitors can check available booth space and make reservations, if they haven’t already done so. Attendees can preview the floor plan and view a list of exhibitors currently attending the show.
To register and book hotels, members can log in to their MyATA Member Dashboard with their username and password. Visit archerytrade.org/trade-show/registration for more information. Archery companies that are not current ATA members and are interested in attending the trade show must submit an application for membership.
