"It was a great night with a great group of NASGW members," said Kenyon Gleason, NASGW President. "Every year the annual Leadership Awards is our opportunity to recognize companies that are committed to two-step distribution. This is the first year we recognized individual products with the brand new NASGW-POMA Caliber Awards."
The Annual Awards Dinner is one of the premier events at the NASGW Expo, which brings together wholesalers and manufacturers within the shooting sports industry to plan sales for the upcoming year.
In addition to this year's Leadership Awards, NASGW partnered with the Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA), to select the best new products in six categories as well as an overall best new product. "We look forward to setting a higher standard with the Caliber Awards for years to come. It is an honor to partner with NASGW to recognize the innovations within the shooting sports industry," said Kevin Orthman, the Executive Director with POMA. "The NASGW Awards Dinner was an outstanding event and it couldn't have gone better. On behalf of our members and board of directors, we thank for the NASGW for the partnership. "
To qualify for the Caliber Awards, manufacturers must be a NASGW member in good standing, the product must have launched within the last year, and products needed to be submitted through the NASGW Expo website.
