This year has been a an chaotic one to put it lightly. It has been especially been hard on the trade show industry which has been severely effected by Covid-19 and the subsequent lockdowns. Another trade show has fallen to the Covid-19 pandemic and this time its the NRA’s Great American Outdoor Show. The NRA’s Great American Outdoor Show was scheduled for February 6th-14th in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Already this year the firearm industry has lost Triggrcon, Enforce Tac, NRA Annual Meeting, the NASGW Wholesaler Expo. We also lost Big Sandy and Knob Creek Shoots. Now, another one bites the dust.
Below is the press release from NRA in regards to the cancellation of The Great American Outdoor Show.
HARRISBURG, PA – To the great disappointment of tens of thousands of sportsmen and women, COVID-related governmental restrictions in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will prevent the 2021 Great American Outdoor Show from being held as scheduled on February 6-14, 2021.
Since the NRA created the Great American Outdoor Show in 2014, the show has been a much-anticipated annual event and a major boon for the state and local economy. More than 1,100 exhibitors and tens of thousands of people from Pennsylvania and indeed around the country and globe would converge on the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex each year contributing approximately $75 million to area businesses and state coffers, according to official local estimates.
The NRA will certainly miss the opportunity to celebrate America’s great firearm, hunting, fishing and outdoor heritage, but we look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at the Great American Outdoor Show scheduled to be held February 5 – 13, 2022.
This year has been a roller coaster of a ride for the world. Hopefully, next year we can course correct and move forward with a productive 2021 as a whole.
