NRA Is Named New Promoter Of Outdoor Show In Harrisburg, Replacing Show Canceled Over Gun Ban

 

 

” The National Rifle Association has emerged as the new promoter of the area’s annual outdoors show at the Farm Show Complex, replacing the now-cancelled Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show.

The announcement was made at a press event Tuesday. The NRA is dubbing the event the “Great American Outdoor Show.” It’ll run Feb. 1-9, 2014.

The NRA says it aims to make the event a national show. The organization aims to offer country concerts as well.

The Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show was canceled this year after its promoter, Reed Exhibitions, banned the sale or display of assault rifles and vendors threatened to boycott.

The Harrisburg Regional Chamber said the NRA’s involvement could offer an even larger economic impact than the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, which had been a decades-long tradition. The old show had an estimated impact of $88 million.”
