About the New ATA Show Guide and Membership Directory
The all-new ATA Show Guide and Membership Directory is a dual publication and joint venture of the ATA and Zebra Publishing Inc., publishers of Inside Archery magazine.
The publication lists all ATA member companies -- including manufacturers, retailers, distributors, sales reps, media and other industry businesses. Plus, it will be released in early January, and every industry company attending the 2012 ATA Show will receive a copy on-site. It will then be distributed throughout the outdoor business and nonprofit community.
"Now that we have made the ATA Trade Show a member-only event, it makes sense to combine the former ‘ATA Show Guide' with an ATA member directory," said Jay McAninch, ATA president/CEO. "With its timely January distribution, the dual guide and directory will extend the publication's value year-round."
"We're honored the ATA chose to partner with us to create this convenient, comprehensive show guide," said Sherry Krenz, Zebra Publishing owner and founder. "We've received positive feedback on the ‘Show Guide' in previous years, and we believe that adding a complete ATA member directory will make it an even more useful reference tool for ATA members."
Exhibitors, Booth Rentals Increasing for ATA Trade Show
The 2012 ATA Trade Show promises to be one of the largest events in its long, successful history. As of last week, 447 exhibitors - 68 of them newcomers - have rented booth space totaling 155,500 square feet.
In addition, 29 exhibitors have reserved space in the Innovation Zone, which is open only to fledgling manufacturers not yet ready to rent a full-size booth on the Show floor.
Exhibitors have also reserved all 73 of the available shooting lanes, which combine to cover 20,100 square feet. As a result, the 2012 Show will cover a minimum of 176,992 square feet of exhibit space.
