NEWTOWN, Conn.—The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry trade association, is pleased to announce that Orchid Advisors has agreed to sponsor the 2016 NSSF Import/Export Conference at the Gold level. With offices in East Hartford, Connecticut and Washington, D.C., Orchid Advisors is a consultancy firm specializing in the compliance and operational issues faced by those in the firearms trade. The company is also a NSSF-endorsed Compliance Information Provider.

Taking place August 1-3 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 are pleased to have Orchid Advisors join us again to sponsor this important conference,” said Melissa Schilling, NSSF Director, Exhibitions and Conferences. “The company continues to demonstrate a level of commitment to our industry that others can look to as setting the bar.”
