NW Shooting Sports Expo Now TRIGGRCON

You might be interested to hear that the NW Shooting Sports Expo will now be called TRIGGRCON (Tactical Research Innovation Guns and Gear Review Convention), and is already scheduled to occur again next year. The NW Shooting Sports Expo was a huge success this year to they've decided to repeat it, and next year.

One of the biggest complaints often heard SHOT Show is that the general public can't attend. Apparently TRIGGRCON is looking to mitigate that by acting as a mini version of SHOT, allowing you to get up close and personal with the newest gear and the people that build it.

They're telling us they already know about some new product showcases and anticipate the attendance of several innovative companies. Looks like 2017 will be a good year for people in that area.



Here's some more info from the event's organizers.

NW Shooting Sports Expo Now TRIGGRCON

We will be changing the name from NWSSE to TRIGGRCON (Tactical Research Innovation Guns and Gear Review Convention) to better reflect the atmosphere and purpose of the event. TRIGGRCON is an exclusive selection of the top, innovative small arms companies and auxiliary manufacturers showcasing their new products and accessories.  Manufacturer selection will be by invitation only and limited to an intimate number not to exceed 150 companies.  There will be a media range day for live fire demonstrations and show times that are reserved strictly for media.  TRIGGRCON is also open to the general public during all other show times so enthusiasts can have direct access to the elite manufacturers that participate in the show.


For 2017 and its immediate future, the convention location will be in Tacoma Washington.  However, we are exploring possibilities for other cities for possible expansion.

After the hugely successful inaugural year of the NWSSE with 4000 registered attendees and nearly 80 vendors, the most frequently asked question was about its future.

With all of the positive feedback we received during the show, we're not at all surprised that all of the vendors we’ve contacted that were in attendance this year have already recommitted for 2017 such as; Mega Arms, Vortex Optics, Falkor Defense, Agency Arms, Battle Arms, Noveske to name a few.  We will also be welcoming AXTS Weapons, Phase 5 and many new participating manufacturers for 2017.
