Insider: Move-In and Helpful Onsite Info

Welcome back to the FINAL pre-show edition of the SHOT Show Insider, as we are already onsite and moving into The Venetian Expo! Today, we will be providing some last-minute reminders and, most importantly, we hope you all have safe and easy travels this week to Las Vegas.

Exhibitor Help Line Available Starting Tomorrow (Wednesday): 702-691-8555

Feel free to call this number with any questions during all hall hours of the move-in process, and a member of the show management team will either be able to assist you right away or make sure a particular order is communicated to the appropriate team member or floor manager. — Jeff Pressman, ConvExx

Helpful Link to Have Key Information at Your Fingertips

Use THIS LINK as a helpful resource to have bookmarked on your phone. Key information that will be helpful throughout the show will be on this website, and you simply have to choose at the top whether you are at Caesars Forum or Venetian Expo. — Jeff Pressman, ConvExx

It’s Time to Renew Your Booth

Emails with a link to renew your booth for the 2025 SHOT Show were sent out last week. All exhibitors have the opportunity to renew their 2024 SHOT Show booth for the 2025 SHOT Show if they submit their rental agreement and pay the 25% deposit by the end of the 2024 show (January 26). You can only renew your current booth at this time. If you would like a booth change, you can make a request on the rental agreement. Change requests will be addressed during the spring and space will be offered by membership status and priority points. All members get to choose before non-members, so if you are not a member consider joining NSSF today. — Chris Tatulli, NSSF

NSSF Member Services Locations

If you would like to meet with NSSF regarding your membership, or to discuss the many opportunities and resources available to members, the NSSF membership team will be in two locations during the SHOT Show. At The Venetian Expo, you will now find us toward the front of the center aisle of the Level 1 exhibit hall (Booth #42304). At Caesars Forum, you will find the NSSF Member Services and Lounge in the Caesars Forum lobby, directly across from the Forum Ballroom. — John McNamara, NSSF

Confirmation Emails to Exhibitor Personnel Sent Out Yesterday

Please make sure your team is aware that an email confirmation, with vital information for the show as well as the confirmation QR code, was sent from Maritz on Monday, January 15. Every staff member registered will receive badge pick-up locations, specific show hours, and key information to help with a smooth arrival in Las Vegas.  The emails will be listed as coming from 2024 SHOT Show and the email address is email_confirm@confmail.experient-inc.com. — Casie Stock, ConvExx

Register Your Staff and Have Them Confirm Their Email Address

If you haven’t done it yet, and you want to do one thing that will make your life easier when you arrive, make sure you have all your staff in the registration system and confirmed as soon as possible. This will give your staff time to receive the emails necessary to confirm their email address and their confirmation barcodes so they can pick up their badges upon arriving in Las Vegas. — Melissa Schilling, NSSF

Food Options During Move-In

Depending on where you are located, there are numerous options for food that is fast and economical. It’s helpful to know where to go before you start looking. Here are the options this week (during move-in):

Last Chance for Added Networking Opportunities

More than 2,000 registrants have already purchased the added networking opportunities at different clubs around town, with the majority being buyers and the valued attendees you are coming to town to see. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to join them each night after the show closes. You can participate in networking events exclusive to SHOT Show badge holders for as little as $49 per person. Upgrades are available that include open bar packages, which you can purchase individually, for your team, or for your customers. You can purchase through your Exhibitor Dashboard or at the link below. If you’re interested in purchasing for a group of 15 or more, or interested in sponsoring one of these networking events, simply email Jampack, our official partner, at malcolm@jampack.com and a member of their team will be in contact with you. Learn more and purchase packages here. — Jeff Pressman, ConvExx

New Product Center

If you entered a product into the New Product Center, be sure to drop the product off beginning Sunday morning. The New Product Center is located on Level 1 of The Venetian Expo, adjacent to the shuttle lobby and main registration areas. If you are coming from Caesars Forum, a free shuttle is available from the front porte-cochère by registration at Caesars that will drop you off at The Venetian Expo lobby, where the New Product Center is located. Placement is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are interested in participating but have not yet submitted an entry, it is not too late. Simply go to the New Product Center and speak with the associates. — Chris Tatulli, NSSF
