NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- The National Shooting Sports Foundation announces that the Georgia Department of Economic Development will commit $225,000 in support of the NSSF Industry Summit and also toward sponsorship messages on the NSSF.org website.
In addition, the sponsorship agreement provided the Georgia Department of Economic Development with opportunities at the NSSF-owned Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) last January to promote economic advantages for businesses that move to the state.
“We are very pleased to have forged this unprecedented sponsorship agreement between NSSF and the Georgia Department of Economic Development,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “We believe this package will be an effective vehicle for the State of Georgia in reaching its goal of building mutually beneficial relationships with industry manufacturers.”
In June 2014 at the NSSF Industry Summit, which brings together thought leaders from industry and the hunting, target shooting and conservation communities, the Georgia Department of Economic Development will make a presentation and have a major presence at the venue in Springfield, Mass.
The Georgia Department of Economic Development’s promotional sponsorship messages on NSSF’s website, www.nssf.org, will remind visitors to the site of the state’s commitment to hunting and the shooting sports and to its unwavering support of firearms-related businesses.
The Georgia Department of Economic Development is the state’s sales and marketing arm and lead agency for attracting new business investment, encouraging the expansion of existing industry and small businesses, developing new domestic and international markets, attracting tourists to Georgia, and promoting the state as a location for film, video, music and digital entertainment projects, as well as planning and mobilizing state resources for economic development.
