NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- ArmaLite Inc., the internationally known manufacturer of AR-10, M-15, AR-30 and AR-50 rifles, has returned as the title sponsor of SHOT Mobile for the 2014 SHOT Show.
The SHOT Mobile app allows show attendees to search for exhibitors, navigate the show floor by using interactive maps, find new products, learn about show specials, view the show’s education schedule such as for SHOT Show University, set up appointments with exhibitors, request callbacks and find show services.
The app will be made available just prior to the 2014 SHOT Show.
With its renewed sponsorship, ArmaLite joins Outdoor Channel and GunBroker.com as major industry supporters of the SHOT Show.
“We are extremely pleased that ArmaLite will be the title sponsor of SHOT Mobile,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “This show-navigation technology enriches the SHOT Show experience for buyers and attendees. We greatly appreciate ArmaLite’s support in this effort.”
“ArmaLite used the 2013 SHOT Mobile app’s messaging system on Days 1 and 2 of the show to invite attendees to our booth for free tickets to the Day 3 raffle of our new AR-30A1 rifle,” said ArmaLite Communications Director Arthur Steadman. “Thousands of enthusiastic people crammed our booth — and much of the surrounding show floor — for the Thursday raffle. This year, we’re bringing a bullhorn for the raffle!”
In recognition of ArmaLite’s continued support, the company’s logo will be featured on the splash screen of the SHOT Mobile app, on the SHOT Mobile webpage at www.shotshow.org and in the app download section of iTunes, in addition to the company receiving other sponsorship and text-messaging advantages.
