NRA’s annual meeting will be held in April, in Indianapolis, a little under three months away, and we have some “inside word” on it.
In 2018, the year before the scandals broke, 800 exhibitors reserved booths.
Our insider says: for 2023, as of now, only 474 have, a shortfall of over 300 exhibitors over 2018.
Yet the 2023 SHOT show had its highest attendance and exhibit hall rentals ever. It’s not covid, it’s something unique to NRA.
Falling membership, a crashing budget, a shrinking exhibit hall. Something unique to NRA. What could have happened 2019-2023 to cause this? It must be a deep mystery, because the 76-member board of directors cannot figure it out.
