Whether this is your first SHOT Show or your 40th, the SHOT Show Exhibitor Academy delivers the education you need to succeed at SHOT and beyond.
It's 2 1/2 days of learning how to improve your SHOT Show experience, increase your ROI, and get the most out of your exhibit. And, it's free! National Shooting Sports Foundation, producers of the SHOT Show, along with our hotel and contractor partners will be providing all your needs from the moment you touch down in Las Vegas until the Academy concludes.
SHOT Show will provide hotel rooms*, transportation to and from the Sands Expo if needed, two breakfasts, two lunches, and receptions. All you need to pay for is airfare to Las Vegas. Attendees also will receive special offers from many of the contractors you work with at the SHOT Show — lead retrieval, floral, hotel reservations and more.
Information on the 2018 Exhibitor Academy will be posted next Spring. In the meantime, if you have questions, feel free to contact Cassandra Stock or call 702-216-5836.
