Hello Fellow Airsofters,

My name is Kyle, aka Halo, and I'm an airsofter out of North Carolina. Recently, my partner Tony (aka Too Long) and I realized that there as a great desire for airsofters to network and for the sport to gain exposure. So after a few brainstorming sessions and a few months of pre-planning, we are proud to announce the first annual North Atlantic Airsoft Expo. The US Atlantic Seaboard’s only leading local and international airsoft exhibition, drawing exhibitors and attendees from all over the United States and world. This exciting expo will be held March 5th - 7th, 2010, at the state of the art Exhibition Hall located in High Point, North Carolina.

The NAA Expo is a “MUST” event for all airsoft manufactures, airsoft retailers and field / facility owners. Active participation is also expected from event coordinators, state organizations and organized teams. The NAA Expo will also strive to increase public awareness of the sport of airsoft while providing a fundamental network to those who are already a part of this acclaimed sport. While the event is still in its infancy, over the past six days in which we have began sending invitations to industry leaders and announcing it to the airsoft community, we have had nothing but overwhelming and positive inquiries. We both welcome your comments and questions so that with your input we can make this a successful event for you, the airsoft community and the industry. We look forward to seeing you there.

I am pleased to announce that Airsoft International will be attending as the Official Media Partner for the 2010 NAA Expo. Additionally the following companies and teams have finalized their registrations and will be exhibiting: 6mm Militia, Big Boy Toys Airsoft, Blackstone Airsoft, and Duostock Designs, Inc. Visit www.naaexpo.com for up to the minute information.

I'm glad your excited.  I agree. I hope that this will allow the sport to expand and for those of us that are apart of it to network. 

For those of you social guru's out there, get up to the minute updates and announcements by following the NAA Expo staff on Facebook and Twitter.  I can also tell you that we plan to have an event/game/competition using twitter updates.  The details haven't been finalized, but stay tuned for more!

Hello Again!

Sorry for the gap in my recent updates, but I think next year we will have a dedicated individual responsible for going to all the state forums to keep everyone updated.  Haha.

Anyway, if you haven't check the NAA Expo website recently there are a few more exhibitors listed, the floor plan is continually being updated with their locations, we rotate the polls to ask different questions, and now have a way to not only follow us on Twitter and Facebook, but to sign your e-mail address up to our mailing list to receive those updates directly to your e-mail account!

As the year 2009 comes to a close, we're trying to make a big push to get companies to sign up in advance so that attendees will know who they will get to see.  One thing that helps us convince companies to attend is to show them that the community would like to see them there.  With that in mind, I'm asking for your help.  Who would you like to see attend the 2010 NAA Expo?

If you would post below who you would like to see attend, it would be helpful data to present to the exhibitors that their company is a desired exhibitor.

Also, if you don't mind having your name and location used, include that and I will post it on the NAA Expo website. For example:

Big Boys Toys
Kyle - North Carolina

Or

Big Boys Toys
Kyle Thaggard - Winston Salem, NC

Thanks in advance!

Greetings Fellow Airsofters!

In this update we have a few things to share with you.

First, we are pleased to announce that you may now purchase Full Weekend Access Passes on the NAA Expo Website.  For $20.00 you will have access to the Expo for all three show days.  In addition, when you purchase online, you will have exclusive access to something only available for people who buy the Full Weekend Access pass online.  To find out what it is, keep reading!

Second, we are excited to bring you an Exclusive Airsoft Game hosted by Wolf Creek Paintball!  When we originally began planning this show, we knew that Airsofters love one thing, and that is playing Airsoft.  So anyway we could get the players some hands on activities, we knew it would be a successful show.  However, until recently, the logistics in allowing Airsofters the ability to play airsoft at the show wasn't feasible.  Recently, Wolf Creek Paintball has informed us that they would be willing to host an event at their field, exclusive to the show attendees.  This was excellent news, but we needed to find a way to get the attendees there.  So after some searching and negotiations, we have reserved a motor coach to transport a limited number of attendees to Wolf Creek to partake in this exclusive event!   Space is limited and is reserved on a first come first serve basis.  This is why we are contacting you now.  As a subscriber, you are one of the very first to receive this information and have the ability to reserve your slot today!  If you purchase the access to the Exclusive Expo Airsoft Game, it will only cost $25.00*, but if you purchase a Full Weekend Access Pass, not only will you get a discount on the entrance cost, but you will have access to a special offer.  This special offer, good for only individuals who purchase the Full Weekend Access Pass online, can reserve a spot at this game for only $19.00!

For more information on the event pricing, visit this link.
For more information on the airsoft game, visit this link.
To buy a Full Weekend Access Pass and/or to reserve a spot at the Exclusive NAA Expo Airsoft Game, visit this link.
 
*An online processing fee is associated with this particular event.  If you purchase the special offer, the fee is waived.

The NAA Expo is pleased to announce a new exhibitor referral program.  Simply sign up using the provided form on the NAA Expo website, HERE, and create a custom, unique code that you can give to the individual or company you are referring.  When that individual or company registers, have them input your unique code (that you created) into the 'Referred By' field and you will receive credit.  As thanks, the staff of the NAA Expo will send you a check for $50 per exhibitor you refer.  So be sure to put accurate information on the application, as that will be who the check is made out to as well as the address where it is sent.

So contact all your favorite companies and ask them to come!
