AIRSCHOTT, Inc., is Bronze Sponsor of Import/Export Conference

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry’s trade association, is pleased to announce that AIRSCHOTT, Inc., has agreed to sponsor the 2016 Import/Export Conference at the Bronze level. With primary offices in Atlanta, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., AIRSCHOTT is a leading expert in international and domestic transportation services, including custom brokerages, warehousing and distribution, custom bonds and high-value, fragile and Hazmat shipment handling, among others.

Taking place August 2-3 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.

“We’re very pleased to have AIRSCHOTT join us a second time as a sponsor of one of our most important events,” said Melissa Schilling, NSSF Director, Exhibitions and Conferences. “Having previously sponsored this years Firearms Industry Compliance Conference, it’s clear this company has a vested interest in working with our industry to the benefit of all.”

“This is a pivotal year in the processing of ATF regulated imports into the USA and DDTC regulated exports,” said Bob Schott, AIRSCHOTT’s President. “The migration from a paper-based system to the ITDS-based ACE platform constitutes major change in the ways in which importers, exporters, customs brokers, freight forwarders, CBP, DDTC and ATF communicate, and that’s why we chose to invest in this conference.”

A joint presentation of NSSF and the FAIR Trade Group, the 2016 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. Additional sponsorship opportunities for this conference are still available.
