SHOT Show + Sands Expo = Success

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and Sands Expo and Convention Center have followed up the 2014 record-setting Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) by adding another 2 years to its agreement.

Under the new terms, the SHOT Show will be held at the Sands Expo through 2020. The 2014 SHOT Show, which ran Jan. 14-17, attracted more than 67,000 in total attendance (an all-time high) and was the fifth consecutive SHOT Show held at Sands Expo.

"We're pleased with the multi-million dollar investment that the Sands Expo has made in order to meet SHOT Show's needs," said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "The 2014 SHOT Show was the highest rated by both attendees and exhibitors alike, and we want to continue to build on our success here in Las Vegas."

Trivia to stump your buddies at deer camp this fall: SHOT Show is the fifth largest trade show in Las Vegas, and it's the largest trade show of its kind in the world. SHOT generates more than $73 million for the Las Vegas economy.

If you're one of the lucky 67,000-plus industry folks to attend next year's SHOT Show, keep an eye out for one of the North American Hunter editors or TV producers. Remind them of this web post and maybe they'll buy you lunch!
