Nation's Best Sports Partners with Paddlesports Retailer for Fall 2019 Season

Fort Worth, TX – May 14, 2019 — Nation’s Best Sports has partnered with Paddlesports Retailer for the 2019 show season in late August. Paddlesports Retailer is set for August 25-29 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, while the Nation’s Best Sports Fall Semi-Annual Market is set for August 27-29 in Fort Worth, Texas. The first-time partnership enables NBS Members to attend the PSR show on Monday and Tuesday, before traveling to NBS for its Market on Wednesday and Thursday. 

“It is exciting to be aligned with Paddlesports Retailer, the folks there have shown great hospitality and an eagerness to work with us and the NBS Membership,” says NBS Category Manager Tyler Bennett. “Through this partnership, the NBS Members are able to take advantage of the opportunity to attend both shows in one trip, while saving time and money in the process. It’s rewarding that this plan has worked out and it truly helps better the industry as a whole.” 

“We’re happy to collaborate with the Nation’s Best Sports team to offer retailers a two-for-one opportunity, commented Paddlesports Retailer General Manager Charles Conner. “It’s difficult for many retailers to take a week out of the store or office, and the option to attend two shows provides them extra value for their time and travel expenses. It’s also helpful for our industry to attract retailers with a secondary interest in paddlesports, as they represent potential new customers for many of our exhibitors.” 

Participants will register for both shows individually and will fly into Oklahoma City and out of Fort Worth. A free shuttle will be provided on Wednesday, August 28, from the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City to the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth—an easy three-hour trip. 

For NBS Members that book lodging through the Paddlesports Retailer website before August 1, they will receive a lodging reimbursement courtesy of PSR. Registration and hotel booking instructions for Paddlesports Retailer are located at paddlesportsretailer.com.
