Registration Now Open For Exhibitors!
We’re very excited to announce that SHOT Show registration is now open for exhibitors. After two years apart, we can’t wait to see everyone together again back in Las Vegas in January.
We have a new registration sign-in process this year for exhibitors:
- Visit shotshow.org/exhibitor
- Sign into your Exhibitor Dashboard
- Click on the REGISTRATION button
What is Your Exhibitor Registration Dashboard?
Your Exhibitor Registration Dashboard is the first screen you see when you sign into shotshow.org. Once there, you can perform the following tasks:
- Submit for your Exhibitor, Exhibiting Media and Guest badges
- Register for Education Sessions, some of which are specifically tailored to assist manufacturers/exhibitors
- Purchase Monorail Passes
- Donate to Project ChildSafe
- Order your lead retrieval unit or app
As always, if you need any assistance at all, please contact our registration team at email@example.com or (855) 355-7468. — Melissa Schilling, NSSF
The Exhibitor Resource Center
The Exhibitor Resource Center (ERC) is now available through the SHOT Show website under the Exhibitor tab. This is where you will need to go for exhibitor information and contractor services. When you reach the ERC home page, you will need to click on the box based on your booth number: The Venetian Expo (formally Sands Expo), Caesars Forum, or Supplier Showcase. There is specific information and forms for each location so make sure you are clicking on the correct one. If you are new to using the ERC, you should start at HOT TOPICS RIGHT NOW. This is where you will find the Quick Facts, Deadline Checklist, Display Rules and Target Times. Please be aware most contractors have advance pricing if you order by the deadline and this will save you money. — Chris Tatulli, NSSF

Join more than 100 industry leaders for the NSSF/Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) Golf Classic. The pre-SHOT Show golf event will take place January 16 at Bear’s Best Las Vegas. Don't miss out on a fun-filled day of golf and camaraderie that promises to raise more than $50,000 for our industry’s veteran’s charity. Learn more and register a team today. — Chris Dolnack, NSSF
2022 Digital Press Kit is Now Live
Be sure to take advantage of your digital press kits by clicking on the link in your Exhibitor Dashboard. The Digital Press Kit allows you to upload your specific product’s media assets, including press releases, logos, photographs and videos, along with your company’s profile and media contacts. The SHOT Show’s press members will have access to the online Digital Press Kits before, during and after the show as they use this resource to create stories on exhibitors' products throughout the year. — Mike Clark, ConvExx

Warning Regarding Travel Agencies
When booking your travel and accommodations for the SHOT Show, please refer to our official hotel partner OnPeak and The Venetian/Palazzo. All other services are not affiliated with the SHOT Show, even though they may try to appear to be. When you book through unaffiliated providers, you risk missing out on low rates negotiated by the SHOT Show, and flexible cancellation policies. If you are ever unsure if a provider is connected to the SHOT Show please call customer service at (855) 355-7468. — Jeff Pressman, ConvExx
