What is a tradeshow? Tradeshows can be described as an event that is held to bring together members of a particular industry to display demonstrate and discuss their latest products and services. The firearm industry has no shortage of tradeshow events across the country year-round. I am sure some of you have heard of and maybe even attended the larger shows such as NRA and Shot Show. But there are many more you probably haven’t heard of such as TTPOA, ILEETA, NASGW, NBS etc. A lot of time, effort, and money go into planning any tradeshow/event on both sides of the isle so it is important to make the most of these events.
There are many smaller shows that you may not know of, but these shows could have a huge impact on how you purchase your firearms, silencers, and accessories. I believe Sports Inc. is one these shows. Sports Inc. is a buy group show that allows your local dealers to have direct relationships with silencer and firearm manufacturers. It is a great place for manufactures, like Griffin Armament, to meet with our dealers and give them the most up to date information on our products and have special access to certain deals during the show.
Sports Inc. took place in Indianapolis this fall and had an amazing turn out. The show seems to get bigger every year. It is always nice to meet new dealers and speak with existing customers and continue to build a strong relationship. Building a relationship with our dealers is huge because it allows us to understand the needs of the individual that is on the front-line selling Griffin Armament products. Between sharing tech tips, compatibility, and the latest technology and deals. This is an effort to make sure your buying experience is the best that it could be.
The hottest item this fall had to be our new DUAL-LOK™ HRT 556™ silencer. Years of R&D went into the mounting system and baffle technology. Make sure to keep an eye out at your local shop for this silencer as they will be flying off the shelf this holiday season.
