USCCA Signs as Presenting Sponsor of NSSF 2019 Range-Retailer Business Expo


NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) has signed on to be the Presenting Sponsor of its 2019 Range-Retailer Business ExpoTM. USCCA provides self-defense education, training and legal protection to responsible Americans.

“Once again, our friends and colleague at USCCA have stepped up to the plate and invested in the success of our industry,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Retail & Range Business Development. “We are excited to be hosting this all-new Expo for our range and FFL retail professionals and expect that everyone attending will benefit greatly from the involvement and support of USCCA.”

“The United States Concealed Carry Association is proud to partner with the NSSF on its brand-new Range-Retailer Business Expo,” said Tim Schmidt, President & CEO of USCCA. “NSSF does great work as our trade association, and we are excited to work hand-in-hand with them as they continue to support industry retailers and shooting ranges across the country.”

The 2019 Range-Retailer Expo, a first-of-its-kind event, was created to be a comprehensive educational experience for today’s firearms range operators and FFL retailers. A wide variety of panel discussions led by today’s top industry professionals will address the needs of those in the startup phase of new store or range builds, entrepreneurs expanding their current enterprises and veteran business owners seeking insights and information to take their companies to the next level. The expo’s three days of seminars are supported by a dedicated range and retail trade show with dozens of vendors offering the latest in indoor firearms range equipment, software solutions designed to streamline enterprise processes and enhance the customer experience, target manufacturers and product distributors among others.

NSSF’s first Range-Retailer Business Expo takes place Aug. 19-21 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. All firearms retailers and range operators, including those in the startup phase, are invited to attend, and NSSF members receive a significant discount on their registration fee.
