The National Archery Buyers Association (NABA) was formed in 1995 in the Northwest by archery retailers wishing to increase their profit margins and compete with large retail outlets. Since then, it has grown into a buying group of 300 retail shops in the United States and Canada and continues to grow today.

The goal of the NABA is to combine archery pro-shops buying power as a group, to achieve the best possible wholesale pricing with industry manufacturers. We strive for a minimum of 40% profit based on manufacturer’s M.A.P. (Minimum Advertised Price).

Each year the National Archery Buyers Association hosts the official buying group trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada for its member dealers. The NABA also arranges the buying group pricing at the Archery Trade Association (ATA) Show each year.



“The special pricing on items I need in my Archery Pro Shop, I can only get at the NABA Show in Reno! The relaxed pace of The Show makes it easy to place orders and talk with the reps. I really enjoy the fact that NABA hosts a social night for members and manufacturers. NABA also hosts a dinner for members with many door prizes.”

Mike AsheMichie, Tennessee Custom Gear Archery Shop

“The Reno Show, being physically smaller, allows me to find my vendors more quickly and easily than at the larger shows. All the top players are still there and I still get the same or better deals. I am able to spend more time learning about the products and building relationships with the manufactures. I also learn a lot talking to the other dealers at the show.”

Mark HallAndover, ConnecticutAndover Archery Center

“I have attended several archery trade shows over the years, but the NABA show offers an experience different from the others. I attend at least three trade shows a year and the NABA show always has the best pricing on most of the products I stock in my store.”

Jeff UdelhofenDubuque, IowaTri-State Archery

“Being a member of NABA allows me to get excellent prices without having to buy in huge quantities. On items where I don’t do a large volume, I still get a good price from manufacturers and this keeps me competitive with the big box stores in our area.”

Mike Fairbanks Lakewood, New JerseyA&M Archery

“I liked the Reno Show because I had time to talk to the reps. One on one. The hotel is very nice and it’s close to the show. I think the manufacturers go all out to please you there. Last, but not least, the NABA makes you feel wanted at the show.”

Al MeisWatertown, South DakotaAl’s Archery And Black Powder

“Membership in the NABA can be especially good for the smaller dealer. It gives them the opportunity to get product pricing that allows them to compete with the larger stores.”
