2011 North Atlantic Airsoft Expo & Conference


Well it’s that time of year again, that’s right, it’s time to get ready for the 2011 North Atlantic Airsoft Expo & Conference! The staff has been working diligently to bring you the next evolution of North America’s only Airsoft Exclusive Expo and Conference. This year we are continuing our focus on quality exhibitors, exhibitors such as Big Boy Toys, On-Target Airsoft, Pyramyd Air, Crazy CroMags, Special Warfare Command and *CLASSIFIED*! In addition to the exhibitors, the popular activities from 2010 will be making a reappearance; events such as the Top Shot and the Uniform & Regalia competitions and the Battle Buddy program.

New for 2011, we are adding the NAAEC Passport Program. This program requires a little thought and investigative work. Clues and/or Trivia will be listed about various exhibitors, visit the correct exhibitors, have them stamp or sign your passport and then bring your completed passport to the main lobby to be entered to win an awesome prize. For those that attended in 2011, you know what items were given away for the Battle Buddy program, so you can only imagine what is going to be given away for the winners of the Passport Program.

Another change for 2011 is the actual event format. If you noticed the slight change in the title of the event, we’ve added the word Conference to it. One of the top comments left on the comment cards at the 2010 show were remarks about the few seminars that we held, so we’ve taken your advice and ran! This will be a weekend for players, business owners, and professionals to network and share their knowledge. The majority of our seminars have been set, but there are a few more slots available, so if you are interested, please don’t hesitate to PM or E-mail me! The basic schedule of events for 2011 looks something like this:

Friday, March 4th, 2011
6pm to 8pm – VIP Preview Night (Showplace)

Saturday, March 5th, 2011
8am to 10am – VIP Breakfast and Seminars (Showplace)
10am to 7pm – Exhibit Hall and Seminars (Showplace)
8pm to 10pm – VIP Social Mixer (J.H. Adams Inn)

Sunday, March 6th, 2011
8am to 10am – VIP Breakfast and Seminars (Showplace)
10am to 4pm – Exhibit Hall and Seminars (Showplace)

During the day, there should be at least one seminar running every hour and a half. Each seminar is approximately 1 hour long. This is how the hourly break down appears for general attendees:

10:00 am – Exhibit Hall & Shooting Booth
10:30 am – Seminar & Exhibit Hall
11:30 am – Exhibit Hall & Shooting Booth
12:00 pm – Seminar & Exhibit Hall
1:00 pm - Exhibit Hall & Shooting Booth
1:30 pm – Seminar & Exhibit Hall
2:30 pm - Exhibit Hall & Shooting Booth
3:00 pm – Seminar & Exhibit Hall
4:00 pm - Exhibit Hall & Shooting Booth
4:30 pm – Seminar & Exhibit Hall
5:30 pm - Exhibit Hall & Shooting Booth
6:00 pm – Seminar & Exhibit Hall
7:00 pm – Close

This means that at a minimum there will be 10 seminars over the course of the weekend. Add at least two additional seminars for VIP attendees. If we get enough speakers, expect to have two seminars running simultaneously and we’ll try and double them up again later in the weekend so you have an opportunity to get to it later.

Below is a sample of some of the seminars that will be held:
Business Round Table – Speak to a panel of successful airsoft business owners about their business and get ideas to help improve or create your own airsoft business.

Web of Mistakes – Tips to avoid the 10 biggest website blunders. Great for businesses or teams!

Hey! That’s me on TV! – Learn how to interact with the media concerning the sport of Airsoft. Business owners, you can even use this to your advantage!

Leverage Social Media – An introduction to the various social media networks and learn to use them to benefit your business or team!

Field Feng Shui – See various field designs and learn inexpensive ways to implement those ideas.

When Seconds Count – Learn to use airsoft as a training tool to keep sharp on skills used for Law Enforcement and in the military.

Commander’s Table – Speak to a panel of team commanders of various sizes and operational techniques. Ask them questions that will help improve or create a solid and successful airsoft team.

Team Drills & Tactics – Airsoft tactics and training techniques that have are tried and true, taught by prior military and law enforcement from the airsoft team Special Warfare Command.

Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way! – Learn useful leadership techniques to help you on and off the airsoft field. Use them to command your team to victory!

Ticket Sales will begin on January 1st, 2011 at Midnight!

If you haven't pre-registered and are interested in the VIP Pass, you may want to register soon, those passes are limited and are issued on a first come first serve basis. These passes will get you into the Friday VIP Preview Night event, the Morning VIP Breakfasts and Seminars on Saturday and Sunday, the VIP Social Mixer on Saturday Night and also include the Battle Buddy ID Tag and the NAAEC Passport. Currently there are only 100 VIP Passes available and 29 of them have sold.

Only a week and half to go. Can't wait to head down to sunny North Carolina for a couple of days of nothing but airsoft. Are there any other Ohio airsoft business owners headed down?

Great Expo this year. The NAAExp was well worth the 6 1/2 hour drive down to High Point. War Den Airsoft will certainly attend again next year with our entire staff. Good Job NC Airsoft.
