SHOT Show Insider: ‘SHOT After Dark,’ Exhibitor Registration Open, 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 shotshowinsider@nssf.org.

Introducing ‘SHOT After Dark’ and an All-Star Jam Concert

NSSF this week announced an exciting new element at the 2023 SHOT Show: “SHOT After Dark,” featuring three evenings of events outside Caesars Forum—happening right after the show each day. On Tuesday evening, an Industry Welcome Reception will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., with free beverages and a chance to network and unwind after the first day of the show. On Wednesday, get ready for a free, private All-Star Jam concert for all show attendees, featuring some of the most notable names in rock and country music. Presented by Outdoor Sportsman Group, the concert will feature Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Johnny Van Zant, Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery, and a special surprise guest to be named later. On Thursday, a Networking Reception will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., another chance to make new connections and meet up with old friends before dinner (and the final day of the show). More details will be released in the coming weeks, including the name of our surprise special guest for the All-Star Jam. — Bill Dunn, NSSF

Exhibitor Registration is OPEN

Registration for all exhibitors is now open. To register for your badges, simply:

Your Exhibitor Registration Dashboard is the first screen you see when you sign into the SHOT website. Once there, you can perform the following tasks:

  • Submit for your Exhibitor, Exhibiting Media, and Exhibitor 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

If you’re worried about receiving your badges in time to circulate them to several offices or people, we have some great news. To avoid the anxiety of receiving badges in time, we will not be mailing badges to exhibitors. Instead, we are providing numerous places around Las Vegas, as early as the Wednesday before the show, to pick up your badges. Locations will not only include the Venetian Expo and Caesars Forum, but six hotels along The Strip as well as at the airport. Continue to check back for a full list of locations and times by clicking here. If you have any questions regarding the registration process, please don’t hesitate to call us at 855-355-7468 or 203-270-2370, or email exhibitorhelp@shotshow.org. — Casie Stock, ConvExx

Press Conference Opportunities Still Available

Do you have a new product or exciting announcement about your company? Consider holding a press conference in the Press Conference Room during the SHOT Show. There is no charge, and the room is equipped with a screen, LCD monitor, and a microphone, as well as seating. Want the press to join you in your booth? We can advise them about your announcement in your booth as well. Just complete this form. — Susan Schwartz, ConvExx
