See Two Shows in One Trip

Paddlesports Retailer has teamed up with Nation’s Best Sports to make it easy for NBS retailers to see both shows in late August. Nation’s Best Sports’ Fall Semi-Annual Market takes place August 26 – 29 in nearby Fort Worth, Texas. Buyers can start at PSR and end at NBS! For more information about the NBS market, visit their website.

How it works:

  • Register for both shows (instructions below).

  • Fly into Oklahoma City and out of Fort Worth.

  • Make sure to book your Oklahoma City hotel in the official PSR room block to qualify for full lodging reimbursement (instructions below).

  • Attend Paddlesports Retailer on Monday and Tuesday, and then head to Texas on Wednesday morning for two days at NBS.

  • Sign up to take a free shuttle on Wednesday, August 28 from Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City to Forth Worth Convention Center in Texas—an easy 3-hour trip. Just email Danielle Burnett at dburnett@nbs.com to reserve your seat.

Registration Instructions:

Anyone wishing to participate should register for both shows as follows. For Paddlesports Retailer, simply fill out the free Retailer Registration form.

For Nation’s Best Sports Market, contact Danielle Burnett at dburnett@nbs.com for your Market badge and hotel reservations.

Hotel Booking Instructions:

NBS retailers who attend Paddlesports Retailer 2019 and book lodging within the official room block will be eligible to receive reimbursement for their lodging expenses.

  • $150 per night if reserved and submitted prior to 6/1/19

  • $75 per night if reserved and submitted between 6/1/19 and 8/1/19

*Note that Paddlesports Retailer only offers one room incentive per shop/company.

You must use the booking links provided on our website (click here) for each hotel to ensure the room block rate and to be eligible for reimbursement. You’ll find six convenient hotels to choose from. The final deadline to make your reservation and get reimbursed is August 1, 2019 (the day room blocks close). Each hotel has a generous cancellation policy so there’s no risk in booking early. After booking in the room block:

  1. Send your hotel confirmation to info@paddlesportsretailer.com. You must send the official confirmation from your hotel showing the confirmation number and length of stay so we can verify that your reservation is within the room block.

  2. Attend the show in August!

  3. Wait up to 60 days. In the meantime we’ll confirm your reservation against our post-show room data and verify that you attended the show. If everything matches up we’ll send out your reimbursement check. It’s That Easy!
