The National Association of Police Equipment Distributors (NAPED) and the National Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD) have announced their annual SHOT Show reception is to be held on January 24th at the Mirage Hotel. The event offers members from both associations a chance to network outside the busy show floor and gives invited guests an opportunity to meet members and get to know the organizations. The 2017 event exceeded expectations with over 225 members and guests attending.

“Relationships are still key to building business success,” NAPED President, Tim Brown explained. “In a day and age where sales transactions are becoming more digitalized, we in the law enforcement and public safety industry still recognize the importance of face-to-face discussions, earning trust and forging long term relationships. That’s what NAPED was founded on, a commitment to help companies supporting our blue line grow through leadership, mentorship and good business practices.”

“SHOT Show has become an important opportunity for our membership to attend.  As an association, NAUMD values the ability to promote and support its members in an end user environment,” Steve Zalkin, NAUMD President added. “The co-hosted reception has become an event that strengthens both NAUMD and NAPED’s core missions.  The reception also offers a setting to share information and strengthen business friendships in a non-competitive backdrop.”

NAUMD members can sign themselves and guests up by emailing Kathy Zalkin, kathy@naumd.com.  Non-members interested in meeting the membership and finding out more about NAUMD at this event can contact Steve Zalkin at 402-639-0498 or steve@naumd.com
