NSSF Welcomes Mark Barnes & Associates as Import/Export Conference Gold Sponsor

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that the Mark Barnes & Associates has signed on as a Gold Sponsor for the upcoming Import/Export Conference. Based in Washington, D.C., this boutique law firm specializes in matters specifically related to the firearms, weapons and explosives industry, with a focus on import and export controls, licensing and regulatory compliance. The firm also provides audit consultation and training to its clients, and frequently works on legislative issues affecting the trade.

Taking place August 4-5 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 are very pleased to have Mark Barnes & Associates join us as Gold Sponsor of the Import/Export Conference, which only serves to increase the educational value of the conference,” said Melissa Schilling, NSSF Director, Exhibitions and Conferences.

“We are delighted to be the Gold Sponsor of this conference,” said Mark Barnes, firm founder. “Back in 2002, I was one of the original advocates for this conference and worked closely with ATF to get it started. It has now evolved into an even better and broader learning and exchange opportunity for the trade.”

A joint presentation of NSSF and the FAIR Trade Group, the 2015 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.
