Day 3, 10:05 a.m. | Dealers Getting in Line for ArcheryTime
Yes, you can show up twice daily at ArcheryTime's booth to see if you're drawn to win an iPad while meeting celebrities and Olympic archers, but those aren't the only great reasons to stop by Booth 3638.
Archery dealers and exhibitors also are visiting to learn all they can about ArcheryTime, a social community for archery dealers, manufacturers, bowhunters and competitive archers. That's because ArcheryTime delivers the latest news, events, stories, groups, photos and videos about their sports.
"Our booth has been extremely busy and everyone is phenomenally excited by what they're learning about ArcheryTime," said Melinda Gable, the ATA's director of business development and strategy integration. "Dealers are stopping by to see their profile on ArcheryTime and learn more about its powerful platform."
So far, visitors to Booth 3638 like what they're seeing and reading about ArcheryTime. "The top comment is that they're impressed to learn how helpful and useful it will be for them," Gable said. "It will also free up more of their time and help them avoid headaches, while making it easier for customers to find their store online. That's because it has multiple features like the ‘dealer locator' and ‘event locator.' Everyone is really pleased with the site."
ArcheryTime is a free service and benefit for all dues-paying ATA members.
"The comment we hear most often is just ‘Thanks,''' Gable said. "They realize it's a powerful tool and a great benefit. The more they learn about it, the more they appreciate the many ways ArcheryTime can help them."
