Get your walking shoes ready. The 2022 SHOT Show is set to be the largest show in its four-plus-decade history—and all of us at NSSF and our show partners are ready to welcome our industry back together in Las Vegas this January.
Registration for the show will officially open next week, with attendee registration opening on Monday, October 18, and media registration opening on Wednesday, October 20.
The 2022 SHOT Show will be held January 18-21 at The Venetian Expo and the all-new Caesars Forum. To make navigating between the two facilities as seamless as can be, a bridge was recently constructed connecting the two convention centers—with attendees making the walk between buildings in less than one minute.
As of today, the show stands at over 800,000 net square feet. To put it into perspective, the largest SHOT Show ever was 714,000 net square feet, when the 2008 show was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center and outdoor tents needed to be added to fill overflow exhibit space. You can view the exhibit floor here.
Las Vegas has learned a lot over the past year about holding live events safely and successfully. Many other industries have already returned to in-person trade shows in the city—and across the nation—and the results have exceeded expectations. And what we’ve learned from our trade show industry peers and partners has greatly helped us in preparing for our return.
Also, Las Vegas is more ready than ever before to welcome us back. With exciting new hotels like Resorts World and Circa, the newly opened Allegiant Stadium, and truly awesome new attractions like Area 15, SHOT attendees will have plenty to catch up on—both at the show and after show hours.
The support we have received for the upcoming show has been remarkable, and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back in January for the biggest and best SHOT Show in history.
