RedWolf Airsoft UK To Host The Airsoft Showcase In May 2015 - Popular Airsoft FEATURE STORY

RedWolf Airsoft UK To Host The Airsoft Showcase In May 2015 - Popular Airsoft FEATURE STORY | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it
Dear Airsoft Retailer/Site Operator/Airsoft Players:

To keep promoting our sport, I am organising a one day airsoft exhibition for all Retailers, Site Operators and Players on Sunday 17th May at The Mall in Reading.

If you have not been to The Mall in Reading before, it’s exactly what it says on a tin, it’s a BIG empty shopping mall right in the center of Reading.

This show is all about bringing us together and promoting “Airsoft” together. Combining our experience and passion for the hobby, will definitely strengthen our recognition in the fast growing airsoft industry.

For "Retailers" this is a great opportunity to showcase your new shiny toys.
For "Site Operators" now's your chance to promote your game sites.
For "Players" why not sell your pre-owned kits?

On top of the Showcase, there is a brand new walk-on game literally next door to The Mall. Now, how’s that for an Airsoft day out?

For Airsoft Retailers, Site Operators and Players interested in booking a STAND at the show please contact chris.kong-at-redwolfairsoft.com.

Advanced tickets for the Airsoft Showcase will be available shortly through RedWolf UK website at uk.redwolfairsoft.com.
Thumpy Covey's insight:

Sounds like a heck of an event!  Get all the details from OPTI PRIME, at the true showcase of all things UK & World airsoft...POPULAR AIRSOFT!

"Zenitco's attention has been called to copies of their products produced, especially for the airsoft market, without their knowledge or agreement. They are willing to negotiate with those willing to contact them regarding such copies, especially not using the Zenit markings and they will be doing legal action who will not. 

They are looking into licensing their products to any interested company, though they will need more convincing. Their message,posted on Facebook, can also be read below:


Attention everyone.

FAKE PRODUCTS. They exist. We will not mention any companies as we don't deem them worthy of this, but please watch out.

Zenit has not given permission to, endorsed, or supported any of the companies currently producing these copies...."
