What Members Are Saying

Josh Ellsworth

Executive VP of Sales & Marketing, STAHLS'

We’re a platinum sponsor of NSGA and we really believe in investing in the conference because we think it’s a great place for not only team dealers to network with each other but with their suppliers and work on some of the critical issues that are facing businesses each year.

Bill Hunt


I always leave these events very charged up and I’m actually very anxious to go back to the office because I can share some of the things that I’ve heard both from the speakers and other attendees. I’m anxious to share those with other people in our company. It’s just a very fun event and I’m very happy that I’ve been able to attend now for the last seven or eight years.

…we’re here because this is a really important event for us, it’s the National Sporting Goods Association Management Conference. We’re able to network with our dealers, we’re able to talk to other competitors, it’s just a really good event for us.
