$5,000 Big Buck Tags Giveaway
The ATA will give away $5,000 daily at the Show for a total of $15,000. Retailers who place $5,000 in orders at the Show can fill out the first coupon in their Big Buck Tags book, and drop it off in the MyATA Area for a chance to win $5,000. This new giveaway and raffle is the ATA’s way of thanking attendees for doing business on the Show floor.
Once retailers submit their coupon, they’ll be eligible to win throughout the Show. For example, retailers who place $5,000 in orders on Day 1 get three chances to win. Winners will be drawn in the MyATA Area at 5 p.m. on Day 1 and 2, and 3 p.m. on Day 3. Retailers do not have to be in the MyATA Area at the time of the drawing, but must be present at the Show to win. Winners must provide proof of written orders.
$1,000 ScentLok Giveaway
ScentLok will give $1,000 cash to a lucky winner each day of the Show. Only retailers who place $1,000 in orders with Nexus Outdoors companies – which includes ScentLok, Blocker Outdoors and others – can enter.
Retailers who meet the requirements can fill out the second coupon in their Big Buck Tags book and drop if off in the MyATA Area. Winners will be drawn after the ATA’s $5,000 giveaway drawing. Retailers do not have to be in the MyATA Area at the time of the drawing, but must be present at the Show to win. Winners must provide proof of written orders.

Increase Your Chances
The ATA and ScentLok will give away a combined $18,000. To increase your chances, complete all your orders and turn in both Big Buck Tags coupons to the MyATA Area by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 9. In other words, if you write $1,000 worth of Nexus Outdoors orders and $5,000 worth of total Show orders, and turn in your BBT coupons on Thursday, you’ll be entered in all six cash drawings. Your coupons remain in the drawings until the Show’s over, which gives you several chances to win!
Capitalize on Buyer Day
By writing as many orders as you can on Buyer Day, which is Day 1 of the Show, you’ll also avoid more booth traffic. Buyer Day is restricted to those with yellow buyer badges or red exhibitor badges. No one else can enter the exhibit hall. This change ensures buyers and manufacturers concentrate on business without interruptions from other member groups. Click here to read more about Buyer Day.
