A.N. Deringer Renews Sponsorship of 2017 Import/Export Conference


NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry trade association, is pleased to announce that A.N. Deringer, Inc., has agreed to renew its Bronze sponsorship of the NSSF and Fair Trade Import/Export Conference. The company is a leading expert in logistics, providing customs brokerage, freight forwarding, warehousing and distribution services, among others.

Taking place August 2-4 in Washington, D.C., the NSSF and FAIR Trade Group Import/Export Conference gathers industry professionals to discuss the many compliance issues facing today’s U.S. firearms and accessory makers negotiating the complexities involved in doing business with other countries.

“This is the third consecutive year Deringer brings its support and expertise to the table,” said Melissa Schilling, NSSF Director, Exhibitions and Conferences. “We know our attendees will not only appreciate its input on handling the many complexities of today’s import and export operations, but that this company is one that can be counted on as a team player for our industry.”

Donna Kavanaugh, Deringer’s Logistics Regulatory Specialist, shared, “The NSSF works hard every year to organize speakers from the various government agencies with jurisdiction over these commodities. This conference allows attendees to work through and discuss issues with the appropriate government agencies firsthand.”

A joint presentation of NSSF and the FAIR Trade Group, the 2017 Import/Export Conference is the firearms industry’s premier educational event for manufacturers and others in the supply chain doing business internationally or considering such expansion. Registration, hotel information and the conference agenda are expected to be available in April.

Additional sponsorship opportunities for this conference are available. To learn more, contact Chis Tatulli, NSSF Director, Exhibit and Sponsorship Sales, ctatulli@nssf.org. View full details of the event, including the schedule of speakers and topics at nssf.org.
