Savage Arms Becomes Silver Sponsor of 2016 Firearms Industry Compliance Conference

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Orchid Advisors, the firearm industry’s trusted compliance and operations experts, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry’s trade association, are pleased to announce that Savage Arms has agreed to sponsor this year’s Firearms Industry Compliance Conference at the Silver level. Founded in 1894, Savage Arms is one of America’s oldest firearms manufacturers. Now a member company of the greater Vista Outdoor brand, Savage Arms continues to produce a wide variety of quality rifles and shotguns.

“We’re very happy to see Savage Arms support this important conference,” said Larry Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “Its progressive outlook and longevity in this industry bring a wealth of knowledge to the table.”

“Savage Arms’s sponsorship is a true sign of their commitment to compliance, said Jon Rydberg, CEO of Orchid Advisors. “This is the third year in a row that their team has participated in the event and we look forward to seeing them in May.”

Co-hosted by Orchid Advisors and NSSF, the 2016 Firearms Industry Compliance Conference will take place May 2-4 in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference theme is highly focused on the future — where regulations are headed, how new developments in product research and development affect Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs), and what processes and technologies FFLs are using to significantly improve their business. Additionally, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will provide focused sessions throughout the conference, offering FFLs an opportunity to interact, ask questions and focus on proactive compliance. In addition to three learning tracks to choose from during the conference, attendees can also take part in one of two pre-conference workshops on May 2. One workshop will cover firearms industry technology, while the other will take an in-depth look at federal firearms regulations.

Seating is limited for this conference and it will sell out, so industry members are encouraged to register now. To learn more about the 2016 Firearms Industry Compliance Conference, visit Register and reserve your seat here.

A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are available for this event. Contact Chris Tatulli, NSSF director of exhibit & sponsorship sales, at or 203-460-1320 ext. 214.
