Heftman added, "NRA Show 2013 will build upon the success of the 2012 Show, which posted strong growth in both attendee and exhibitor numbers, and provided attendees with a sold-out exhibit floor of over 1,900 suppliers offering a range of new products and services,” Heftman added. “We are bringing back all the excitement of our popular celebrity chef culinary demonstrations, learning opportunities and insight into the hottest trends, as well as some brand new features and events.”
