We are pleased to announce that we will be exhibiting at IWA this year, 3-6th of March.
IWA is an exhibition held in Nuremberg, Germany for high performance target sports, nature activities and shooting companies to exhibit their latest products and news. IWA began in 1973 with just 100 exhibitors and has now expanded into a world-leading trade fair for hunting, shooting sports, equipment for outdoor activities, and for civilian and official security applications. In 2016, IWA featured 1,455 exhibitors and over 45,500 trade visitors from 114 different countries and continues to grow every year.
This year, not only will we be exhibiting (Hall 6, Stand 335), but so are a number of other big industry names; H&K, Benelli Armi, Action Sport Games, Browning International and Swiss Arms to name a tiny handful.
IWA has a handy guide with everything you need to know including a floor plan.
