SHOT Show Insider: Important Hotel Updates, Booth Renewals and More

Welcome to the latest SHOT Show Insider, written by the SHOT Show team at NSSF and our show partners to keep you informed on all things SHOT Show. Let us know what topics you’d like to see addressed here in upcoming issues by emailing us at

Fact Check: Vaccination Not Required

We receive a lot of questions about what health and safety requirements attendees can expect, so here is the scoop: NO proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required to attend. Per Nevada’s mask mandate, face masks are currently required at both the Venetian Expo and Caesars Forum. The SHOT Show has procured face masks for all individuals attending the show in case you arrive without one. We will notify everyone should the face mask policy change between now and the show. View the latest guidance here— Chris Dolnack, NSSF

Important Hotel Updates

Rooms are still available at the special SHOT Show discounted rates at the Flamingo, Linq and Harrah’s, all of which are extremely convenient to the newly expanded SHOT Show at Caesars Forum. The Venetian has also extended discounted rates for the SHOT Show community, but inventory is limited so book now if you intend to stay at the Venetian resort. Recently reduced rates are also now available at the brand-new Conrad Las Vegas at Resorts World and the Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World, the newest resort on the Las Vegas Strip that just opened earlier this year. Secure rooms for yourself or your team today! Availability and special SHOT Show discounted rates after the cut-off dates is not guaranteed, so book your rooms today through the SHOT Show website. The only official housing providers are onPeak and the Venetian/Palazzo. — Mindi Cherry, ConvExx

SHOT Show and Supplier Showcase Booth Renewals for 2023 Show

Keep an eye out after New Year’s for your booth renewal email. The email will come from This is your opportunity to secure the same booth you had in 2022 for the 2023 show (for SHOT Show and Supplier Showcase exhibitors). All you need to do is complete the rental agreement and submit 25% deposit by the end of the 2022 SHOT Show. If you would like to request a booth change, you can indicate that on the agreement. All booth changes will be addressed in the spring. Priority goes by NSSF membership and priority points. So, if you are not a member, now is a great time to join. If you are a SHOT Show eXtra participant, you will receive a similar email to secure your guaranteed 10×10 booth for the 2023 show. Exact location will be determined after all changes from renewals are complete. Larger booth requests will be fulfilled based on availability. For questions, please contact — Mike Clark, ConvExx

New Product Center – Move-In Reminders

The New Product Center has moved to a new location in the Academy Ballroom at Caesars Forum. If you have purchased a space in the New Product Center, be prepared to bring your product for placement during move-in. Check-in for the New Product Center will be open Sunday, January 16, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Monday, January 17, from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. SHOT Show staff will assist you with placement. Spots are not pre-assigned; product placement is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. We are adding a shuttle between the Venetian Expo and Caesars Forum for move-in on Sunday and Monday to accommodate exhibitors taking products over to New Product Center. The shuttles will leave from the shuttle lobby (right next to the former New Product Center location) and drop off at Caesars Forum near the Academy Ballroom. Shuttles will be running all day on Sunday and Monday. For full information regarding New Product Center move-in, and more information about purchasing a New Product Center space, click here. — Chris Briare, ConvExx
