ada, nbs partner on spring and summer athletic shows

Viera, Florida and Fort Worth, Texas (Feb. 27, 2018) - The Athletic Dealers of America (ADA) and Nation's Best Sports (NBS) are partnering again for their 2018 Spring & Summer Athletic Shows on July 13-15 in Jacksonville, Florida. ADA and NBS partnered for the first time in their 2017 Fall Show in Oklahoma City in November.

NBS and ADA will maintain their own identities during the event while sharing a joint buying/networking experience. The partnership allows show exhibitors to save travel time and expenses by attending one event. Members will also benefit from seeing more industry vendors in one location.

"We are pleased to be able to once again combine with ADA for the mutual enhancement of our events," said NBS president Jim Chandley. "This is another step toward strengthening our team and retail athletic business and we are hopeful that further progress can be made to enhance the viability of our respective groups. We look forward to working with the ADA staff to execute a mutually beneficial event."

Said ADA president Pete Schneider: "This was a positive step for both of our groups as well as our attending vendors and sales reps at last year's Fall Show. It improved the productivity of the show for all attendees while reducing the costs that were associated with vendors attending multiple shows."
