Topple Becomes Gold Sponsor of NSSF Marketing and Leadership Summit

NEWTOWN, Conn. — NSSF®, the Firearm Industry Trade Association, is pleased to announce that Topple has stepped up to be a Gold Sponsor of the NSSF Marketing and Leadership Summit in May near Austin, Texas.

Topple LogoTopple is a digital advertising network that specializes in helping brands reach American consumers outside of major ad networks such as Facebook and Google. They offer display, video, and native advertising and work with their clients to help advertise anything that’s legal—firearms included—to “reach the unreachable” American consumer.

Among Topple’s clients are several well-known firearm industry brands who are reaching millions of American consumers every single month with digital ads through Topple.

Topple notes that its founder and CEO has managed over $6 billion in advertising budgets for some of the world’s largest brands, giving him intimate knowledge as to the lengths BigTech has taken to silence entirely legal industries and how to best serve both publishers and advertisers. He’s used that knowledge to raise over $1 million, from backers like 1517 Fund and Pete Brownell’s 2nd Adventure Group, to build the only ad network built on the foundation of free-speech.

“For years the firearms industry has been forced to find creative ways to work around vague, ambiguous, overly broad and constantly changing rules about how they can reach their target customer with the latest in digital advertising technology. As the first programmatic ad network to allow brands to advertise anything that’s legal,  Topple is excited to connect with marketing executives in the firearms industry to reveal how the digital advertising game has changed now that the firearms industry can leverage Topple as a tool to reach their target audience as a Gold Sponsor for the NSSF’s first Marketing & Leadership Summit,” said Brian Aitken, Founder & CEO of Topple.

“Given its specialization in digital advertising, Topple is a great fit as a Gold Sponsor of the NSSF Marketing and Leadership Summit,” said Melissa Schilling NSSF’s Managing Director, Exhibitions and Conferences. “Their presence demonstrates the importance of this conference to industry communications leaders.”

NSSF has combined two of its highly regarded industry professional development conferences—the Industry Summit and CMO Summit—into the NSSF Marketing and Leadership Summit. This not-to-be-missed event will take place May 10-12 at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort outside of Austin, Texas.

Join the industry’s leading executives and marketing professionals for two days of insights, education and networking opportunities at this “super-conference”  Subject matter experts will cover topics including cutting-edge marketing strategies to the new demographics of firearm ownership to customer retention and leadership.

Attendance is limited, so register today at the Marketing and Leadership Summit’s website.
