ADA and NBS have once again partnered to co-locate their 2018 Spring & Summer Athletic Shows. The joint event will be held at the Hyatt Riverfront Hotel in Jacksonville, FL

Both NBS and ADA will maintain their own identities during the event, while sharing a joint buying/networking experience. The synergy between the two buying groups will allow show exhibitors to save travel time and expenses by attending a single event. In addition, members from both groups will benefit from seeing more industry vendors at one location.

“We are pleased to be able to once again combine with the ADA for the mutual enhancement of our events. This is another step toward strengthening our team and retail athletic business, and we are hopeful that further progress can be made to enhance the viability of our respective groups.” said NBS president Jim Chandley. “We look forward to working with the ADA staff to execute a mutually beneficial event.”

“This was a positive step for both of our groups as well as our attending vendors and sales reps at last year’s Fall Show. It improved the productivity of the show for all attendees while reducing the costs that were associated with vendors attending multiple shows,” said ADA president Peter Schneider.

The dates for the combined ADA & NBS show are July 13 -15, 2018. To receive an exhibitor show packet, please contact the ADA Office by phone at 321-254-0091 or by email at
