Become a sponsor to reach 70,000+ NRA members who gather to enjoy fun, fellowship and patriotism during the 2016 NRA Annual Meetings — this premier event will take place May 20-22 in Louisville at the Kentucky Exposition Center.
Being a 2016 NRA show sponsor is a terrific way to reach this enthusiastic, highly charged audience of NRA members, shooters, hunters and sportsmen. And, depending on your level of sponsorship, you also have the advantage of reaching millions of gun owners beyond the events planned in Louisville. Many sponsorship levels include exposure in print ads featured in NRA magazines, NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits flyers and posters, mass emails to NRA members promoting the show, area billboard advertising, and our NRA Annual Meetings website.
As the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits continues to expand, so does your need to separate yourself from the competition. One of the most cost effective ways to do this is through an advertisement in the Official Show Program Directory. Chock full of everything show related, this high-quality, full-color directory is distributed to attendees as they arrive to the show. It not only serves as a road map during the show, but evolves as a keepsake and resource guide for years to come, continuing to provide returns on your advertising dollars long after the show is over. For questions or to purchase your directory ad contact Pete Yuska at 703-267-3782 or firstname.lastname@example.org
