New for the 2020 Show
Only those with a buyer badge (yellow) or exhibitor badge (red) will have access to the exhibit hall on Day 1 of the 2020 ATA Trade Show. This schedule ensures the industry’s buyers and manufacturers can focus their joint efforts on uninterrupted order-writing, business planning, and new-product evaluations the first 9.5 hours of the three-day Show. The Show floor opens to all other Show attendees the next two days, Jan. 10-11. The ATA Board of Directors approved this decision in April.
Trade Show Awards
The ATA created an awards program to recognize ATA members for their achievements – or for creating products – in the archery and bowhunting industry. The ATA will present about 26 awards at the Show. Innovative new products, products in the Featured Product Showcase, and people and companies inspiring others to try archery are eligible for awards. Stay tuned for more information.
