We've worked with Freeman at a number of trade shows and, as far as we can tell, they're about as good as any show services provider.  Certainly better than some others we've dealt with.

Kudos to NSSF and the SHOT Show brass.  Makes us proud to be NSSF media members.

Our new agreement with Freeman provides that continuity and continues to deliver best-in-class services to our exhibitors,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF senior vice president and chief marketing officer.
