Great White Productions, organizers of the show, made the decision in order to assemble an even larger attraction.
"We just decided that even though our total exhibit sales to date for The Adirondack Sportsmen's Show were good, they just weren't good enough for us," said Great White Production's President and CEO Jeff Fraser. "It's better to take a step back, regroup, re-brand, and make it the huge national event that we know it can and will be in the fall."
This postponement has also afforded the opportunity to pool the resources of Great White Productions and Elk Publishing, the net result being that the event will have all of the trappings to be on the cutting edge of the industry.
