It’s come to our attention that email scammers are at it again, using the COVID-19 crisis to spread false information about trade shows, including the SHOT Show®, in an effort to steal from our exhibitors.
One of these scammers this week has been sending emails to SHOT Show exhibitors, claiming the show has been postponed and attempting to sell a fake list of attendee contact information (a screenshot of this email is shown below). If you receive this email, or any other scam emails like it, please delete it or bring it to our attention by contacting us. The only sources you should trust are NSSF®, the SHOT Show, and our official show partners.
Despite what these scammers are peddling, plans for the 2021 SHOT Show are in full swing. Our expansion to the new Caesars Forum—right next door to the Sands Expo—is ahead of schedule, our booth sales are progressing better than ever, and the 2021 SHOT Show is shaping up to be our best show ever—FULLY LOADED and FULLY EXPANDED.
While we’re about seven months away from the show, we’re working nonstop right now to ensure the 2021 show is one of the most successful our industry has ever had. That’s our commitment to you—each and every one of our exhibitors, attendees and press members—and we can’t wait to see all of you in Las Vegas in January.
And again, if you receive an email that you are skeptical of, please feel free to contact us at any time.
