Derp Report’s Upcoming Review of the NRA Show

I went ahead and applied for media credentials to the NRA show this upcoming weekend. No guarantee on approval, but this humble little site with is 7,000 unique months readers does fall within the criteria of accepted media outlets:

  1. You must have an editorial role within a well-established news media outlet that publishes original content (check)
  2. Your news outlet or blog must regularly cover food, foodservice, entertainment and leisure or other topics related to the hospitality industry – and receive at least 1,000 unique visitors per month (check)

This is not the Charlton Heston NRA, but rather the greatest bar, hospitality, and restaurant show in the world!  This show is a perfect showcase of the many different companies we spend millions of points (and dollars) on. Our active duty readers are one of the few groups of people that get 30 days of annual leave, and are always seeking food, food service, entertainment, and leisure outlets all around the world. The Derp Report is a quickly rising site that has been positioned in writing to this unique population. Our readers are stationed worldwide and present a unique marketing opportunity to a very well traveled group (with excellent credit). It would be a value add on both sides to show our military readers what is to come regarding the hospitality and food service industries. Last year’s attendees included:

  • Costco
  • Hyatt Hotels
  • Hyatt Hotels & Resorts – Chicago
  • Intercontinental Hotels Group
  • Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants
  • Marriott International
  • Sandals Resorts International
  • Starwood Hotels And Resorts
  • Wyndham

Pardon the media sales pitch here, but there are certainly many opportunities to sell to the Active Duty population. Derp Report is the perfect showcase for your particular brand or loyalty program. Our readers have plenty of disposable income, and if they follow the sensible financial and investing advice, perhaps even more in the future. Hope I get those credentials for the show, and if not we will just hang out at the American Express OPEN lounge across the hall.
