Market Information

    

NBS currently hosts six category-specific buying Markets annually. NBS offers independent retailers a diverse portfolio of buying opportunities in all categories of outdoor sports and general sporting goods. At each of our Markets, NBS Members have access to hundreds of vendors and advantageous buying programs while finding the newest, hottest and cutting-edge products in the industry, coupled with the ability to purchase product at deeply discounted rates.

NBS Markets are a unique trade show experience because exhibiting vendors are not only able to show their products, but Members actually write orders during the duration of the Market utilizing approved pricing from the submitted program. At our Markets, Vendors have the opportunity to meet with and sell to the NBS Membership, the premier group of independent sporting goods retailers in North America.
