Market Information

Members see the largest benefit at the NBS markets. With access to hundreds of vendors, and attended by hundreds of members, both members and vendors benefit at these markets. Members have the opportunity to interact with vendors selling some of the hottest, newest, and cutting edge products in sporting equipment, and then purchase these items at deeply discounted rates. These rates are available to members only while at these markets, which is part of why attendance is so high. Members also interact with other members, sharing information about the industry, trends, and innovative approaches to retailing sporting goods. 

During these markets, vendors interact with members—a diverse group of independent sporting goods retailers throughout the country—and get feedback direct from those interacting with and selling to consumers. And because of the compelling programs vendors put together for these markets, they leave with purchase orders in hand.
