Big Rock Sports Outdoor Expo Returns to Nashville

NASHVILLE, TN – Big Rock Sports will host its 2020 National Outdoor Expo at the Music City Center beginning Monday, January 6 through Wednesday, January 8. As North America’s largest wholesale distributor for the outdoors industry, Big Rock Sports offers retailers this once-a-year opportunity to see and buy the top brands in fishing, shooting sports, hunting, ammunition, camping and marine products over three event-filled days and nights in Music City USA.

“Big Rock Sports has hosted shows for over fifty years. Our Nashville Outdoor Expo, with almost 1000 exhibiting vendors will be the biggest event of its kind,” said Brian Phillips, Senior Vice President. “This is not just a national event. It’s global, with vendors and retailers attending from all over the world. We expect attendance to be as much as thirty percent higher than last year’s very successful Inaugural event.”

“For almost a decade we have been the leader in the distribution of firearms, ammunition, hunting, fishing and camping gear. With the recent departure of some key players in the industry combined with decisions by some national retailers concerning the sale of ammunition and firearms we have stepped up to service our existing and new customer’s shooting sports, hunting and ammutition needs. We’ve been very aggressive adding additional firearms vendors, developing sales programs for smaller ammunition-only customers and rolling out Range Ammunition Pallet Programs for customers with volume needs,”added Phillips.

If you’re an outdoor retailer who’s not currently a Big Rock Sports customer, there is plenty of time to open an account and get registered to attend the 2020 Outdoor Expo. Visit Become a Big Rock Sports Customer or email

Day One: New Product Showcase Awards & the Annual NASH BASH

The show floor will be open for business and entertainment from 8:00 am to 6: pm on Monday, January 6. For the first time, this year the Best New Product awards, sponsored by Fishing Tackle Retailer will be announced on Monday January 6th on the Expo floor. Retailers do the voting, so the New Product Showcase is a true indicator of the products the marketplace values most out of the hundreds entered into the competition by exhibitors.

At 7:00 pm all attendees are invited to the Second Annual NASH BASH with food, beverages and music at Nashville’s legendary Jason Aldean’s Kitchen and Rooftop Bar. Last year’s Nash Bash was touted as “The Best Industry Party Ever” by those who attended.

Closeout Cave, Hot Profit & Customer Appreciation Events

The Tuesday show floor schedule is also 8:00 am – 6:00 pm with Closeout Cave once again open for business and bargain-hunting. As always, you can enjoy music, drinks, food and exclusive show floor specials during our Customer Appreciation Events. We also provide complimentary drinks and bites throughout the Expo.

On Wednesday, the show’s final day, the floor will open at 7:00 am and remain open until 1:00 pm followed by lunch and then Hot Profit, Special Show Pricing That Sizzles! This is where we unveil the best deals of the year and Hot Profit gets bigger and better every year. Expect a wider selection of products at prices you just won’t find anywhere else, plus amazing terms with multiple ship dates.

The End-of-Show Grand Prize Raffle Giveaway You Can’t Miss

Following Hot Profit, the Grand Prize Giveaway closes the 2020 Expo in style. This year will feature two Grand Prizes: a full-sized 4x4 pickup and a muscle car sports coupe. Additional prizes include a Harley-Davidson, a side-by-side ATV, bass boat package, 4WD ATV, a Costa Rica fishing trip and more.

Nashville: Music City and So Much More

The 2020 Outdoor Expo is definitely a destination for the whole family. Start with a pre-show stroll down Lower Broadway, where you can hang out at a world-famous honky-tonk and take in the essence of Nashville. Even if twangy accents aren’t your thing, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the world-renowned Grand Ole Opry are two places you can’t miss, though Jack White’s Third Man Records is another music attraction worth checking out. When it comes to the food and drink scene, the city’s restaurants, breweries, wineries and distilleries are guaranteed to fill you up with tons of great memories to share later.
