Friday, April 10 through Sunday, April 12, the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee will be housing over 550 exhibitors during the 144th annual NRA Meeting and Exhibits. With an expected turnout of over 70,000 attendees, this event is not only one of the largest shooting and outdoor shows in the country, but will also be the largest convention ever to be held in Nashville.

But gun lovers, outsdoorsmen, and hunting enthusiasts won’t be the only groups interested in attending this event. With the presidential election rounding the corner, many of those seeking the Republican nomination will be speaking at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum.

According to the NRAAM website, the list of confirmed speakers include Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Hon. Sarah Palin, and Donald Trump.

Last year’s NRA Convention in Indianapolis recorded 75,267 attendees. The event planners hope to bring the convention back to Indianapolis in 2019 and 2023.
