Hartford, CT – Orchid, the leader in FFL technology, payment processing, and firearm and explosives compliance services, has announced that the 2024 Firearms Industry Conference (FIC) will be postponed.
Orchid has experienced unprecedented growth in 2022 and 2023, creating a much larger client base across the manufacturing, distribution, and retail FFL sectors. With a strong commitment to maintaining the quality of the Firearms Industry Conference, Orchid has chosen to defer this year’s event as it expands its pool of talented professionals who can allocate time and create content to host this annual conference properly.
Orchid CEO, Jon Rydberg comments, “While the annual FIC is a highlight for us and the firearms industry, our current growth trajectory and the expansion of our services require our full attention over the next six months. We are dedicated to ensuring that every FIC event meets our high standards of excellence and value for our attendees. This pause allows us to focus on our core mission to grow our team while delivering unparalleled technology and compliance solutions to the firearms industry to deliver value to our clients in 2024.”
Rydberg adds, “We are enthusiastic about our future and long-term commitment to deliver regulatory, financial, and technology education to the industry. We appreciate our client’s understanding and support as we focus on the months ahead.”
