Vendor Testimonials

"The Georgia Outdoor News Outdoor Blast was one of the best shows I have ever attended. All three days had great crowds of customers flowing through the aisles of the LakePoint Sports complex which turned out to be an excellent facility and location. I have been selling Warthog Knife sharpeners for 12 years and the 2021 Outdoor Blast was awesome!  Thank you so much to the staff and volunteers of Georgia Outdoor News, the other great vendors who were there, and all the wonderful customers who made it a truly successful event!!!"
Tony Brooks, TB Warthog Knife Sharpener

"We had a wonderful time at the GON Outdoor Blast this past weekend.  It is always one of the favorite shows that the Pistol Creek crowd does, but this year it just seemed a little more special.  Don't know if it was just getting to do a show post Covid or the new venue (which is great), or both but vendors and attendees alike all seemed excited to be back fellowshipping with one another and getting to see some of the best companies in the industry gathered completely under one roof.  We booked immediately for next year in anticipation of it growing even more!  We cannot wait!"
John Browning, Pistol Creek Turkey Calls

"Our team felt like the 2021 GON Outdoor Blast was the best to date. We enjoyed the new LakePoint Sports venue and location. The size of the Champions Center building allows more exhibitors than previous years and the entire show being included in one room is great. The LakePoint staff and Outdoor Blast Staff were exceptional. We look forward to seeing everyone next year."
Carey Odum, Ag-Pro

"I have been a vendor at various outdoor shows in the Southeast for several years. Recently, I was a vendor at the GON Outdoor Blast at the Lake Point Sports Center in Emerson, Georgia. This show was one of the most productive shows I have participated in. The facility was easy to locate and parking was convenient for everyone. The floor plan  was well planned by GON. Additionally, the facility remained full throughout show hours.  I Appreciate everyone involved, that made this event such a success."
