NWTF Announces Vortex as Longbeard Sponsor for Nashville Convention

The National Wild Turkey Federation announces Vortex® as a Longbeard Sponsor for the 2024 Convention and Sport Show Feb. 14-18 in Nashville, Tennessee.

“The Vortex® brand is not only rooted in great glass and customer service but also, conservation, and NWTF is a shining example of putting these ideals into practice,” said Joe Hamilton, Vortex® CEO. “No one has done more for the wild turkey population and their habitat, and we’re proud to work in lockstep to ensure that turkey hunting and conservation continues to thrive.”

For the third consecutive year at the convention, Vortex®, an American-owned optics manufacturer celebrated for its line of optics and accessories and VIP Warranty, will sponsor the convention’s raffles, Product Showcase and floor clings. Additionally, attendees can visit Vortex at booth 2046 in the Sport Show exhibit hall to explore their innovative optics, check out exclusive gear at the show, and enter to win a shotgun fitted with an unreleased red dot.

“We greatly appreciate the ongoing support of Vortex® as a sponsor and exhibitor at the Sport Show,” said Natalia Daniels, NWTF national director of corporate relations and licensing. “Hosting our convention would be impossible without the invaluable support of partners like Vortex®. Be sure to explore their booth and find the perfect optics for upcoming hunting seasons.”

The NWTF Convention and Sport Show, sponsored by Mossy Oak, kicks off with a social and live music with Country Outdoors held inside the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center Wednesday evening. Official Convention activities commence on Thursday, Feb. 15, featuring rendezvous sessions, the evening’s Kickoff Party and the grand opening of the Sport Show floor, hosting over 500 top exhibitors in the outdoor industry. Taking place from Thursday to Saturday, the NWTF Sport Show is free to attend for NWTF members. The convention culminates with a worship service on Sunday, Feb. 18, marking the conclusion of the NWTF’s 48th annual Convention and Sport Show.
