SHOT Show 2024: What to Know Before You Go

SHOT Show 2024 - What to Know before you go

SHOT Show — the largest and most comprehensive trade show for all professionals involved with the shooting sports, hunting, outdoor and law enforcement industries — kicks off next week. As any veteran showgoer can tell you, it’s a BIG show; there’s a lot of ground to cover — attendees have access to 2,500+ exhibits spread over 800,000 square feet. Here are some highlights to help you get ready for the show.

Registration Badge Pick-Up

Are you and your staff registered for SHOT show? Make things easier and be sure all your staff is registered for the SHOT Show. Learn more.

One of the top causes for a delay in registration confirmation for the SHOT Show is not providing the proper credentials during the registration process. View the 2024 attendee requirements here.

Must-See Show Sections

One must-see section of the SHOT Show is our New Product Center, at the Venetian Expo, Level 1. The industry’s hottest new products of the year have been collected into one easy-to-shop destination. The SHOT Show New Product Center is a stockpile of insights into new firearms & accessories hitting the market; it’s a great shortcut to identifying must-see tech and innovation. 

Supplier Showcase
The SHOT Week Supplier Showcase is a dedicated event for suppliers to display their shooting, hunting, and outdoor material supplies, off the main trade show floors.

If you use or produce tools, machinery, plastics, fabrics, OE materials, logistics, software or other products and services for the shooting, hunting, outdoor and law enforcement industries, then SHOT Week’s Supplier Showcase is your opportunity to connect with a wide range of manufacturers and other industry professionals.

Supplier Showcase will take place Monday and Tuesday only in the Venetian 5th-floor Palazzo Ballroom.

All New-Archery Business Pavilion

Good for any firearm or archery retailer, these are high-margin product lines perfect to broaden your business. Find the Archery Business Pavilion at the Caesars Forum in the Academy Ballroom.

After Hours Networking

One of the most important aspects of the SHOT Show is the networking opportunities amongst exhibitors and customers. This year’s show will feature more networking events than ever before with one concert and two happy hour events filling the evenings just after the SHOT Show floor closes and SHOT After Dark schedule provides late-night opportunities to mix with your industry colleagues at some of the best venues in Las Vegas.
