No Retail Sales Permitted
This is a reminder that retail sales by exhibitors at the SHOT Show are strictly prohibited pursuant to the Exhibitor License, which states “Direct over-the-counter sales may violate state or local laws and are strictly prohibited at the Show.” Show Management reserves the right to take all necessary and appropriate action to enforce violations of these rules, including but not limited to revoking an exhibitor’s license to exhibit at the current show and exhibition at future shows. The SHOT Show strives to promote a professional business to business environment on the show floor and retail sales by exhibitors to attendees in the aisles attracts more consumers to the show while detracting from true B-to-B transactions.
