TRADE ORGANIZATION AND EXTRAVAGANZA
The Paintball Sports Trade Association is proud to announce their full support and alliance with the 5th annual Paintball Extravaganza, a professional Paintball Dealer Trade Show, held in Atlanta, Georgia. This is the largest Dealer/Field-Only wholesale business trade show and dealer summit in the world, and the word of its rich content and strong merits have more than tripled its attendance and popularity among Dealers and Vendors alike. With no noisy dry-firing, tournament activities or scenario game distractions, the focused 3-day event offers entrepreneurs with a unique and valuable opportunity to strike up new business supply relationships, to receive special deals, and to benefit from many clinics, seminars, forums and technical certification opportunities.
The PSTA Advisory Board will be comprised of the following industry veterans; Dave "Youngblood" DeHaan of Dye Precision (Board Chairman); Rick Chard, President, Paintball Events Unlimited LLC; Craig Miller; PSTA Vice Chairman and ProCaps Senior VP; Pat Ehren, VP Sales & Marketing, Tippmann Sports; Doug Flood, VP, Severe Paintball; Ed Rieker, President, PbNation.com (Media); Rob Staudinger, President, Paintball Central (Member At Large).
Solid Growth: Recently attended by many industry luminaries and noteworthy pioneers of the game, the Paintball Extravaganza Professional Paintball Dealer Trade Show was first held in Springfield Illinois in 2005, with just 18 exhibitors, 8 classes, and 36 Dealers. However, word of this positive event spread quickly, building strong, consistent growth. This year's show brought attendance from 117 stores and fields, 49 exhibitors, including many of the industry's finest and most established suppliers, and 24 business and technical certification classes & forums, provided by leading manufacturers and distributors. The 2009 Paintball Extravaganza promises to deliver even more vendors, special deals, rich curriculum content and growth opportunities to aid business entrepreneurs and their staffs.
Scheduled for February 5th ,6th & 7th at the Atlanta Crowne Plaza-Airport, the steadily expanding event outgrew the previous facility. This year, a free 5-minute shuttle ride will deliver Paintball Dealers, Field Operators and their staff's from Atlanta's centrally located airport.
