The SHOT Show moved to the Venetian Expo (formerly the Sands Expo Center) in 2009. Since then, exhibitors have been given the opportunity to retain their booth space year after year, with new companies or changes to the floor plan only taking place when existing exhibitors do not renew or change their space. Those companies that have wanted to pick new space or change their location over the years have participated in a type of space selection, which we have called Booth Moves Week. This year, all companies will be selecting a booth from a floor plan that will be designed based on what exhibitors are asking for in 2021 rather than what was created in 2009 and adapted over the years.
Yes, you will be able to select a different booth size and configuration. However, if there is a significant difference between your request and what you would like to select, Show Management may deny specific booth requests if the size desired is difficult to recreate in another area. As previously mentioned, an inventory of booth sizes will need to be maintained in order to accommodate all requests, and we will not permit an exhibitor to “take away” an opportunity that was specifically requested by another exhibitor. If you know in advance that you want to change your requested size, please contact us as soon as possible through firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know of your new requested size and configuration.
The floor plan doesn’t provide for pictures, but if there are any questions about what is around a particular booth or area of the show, you can always ask the person you are on the phone with or send an email to email@example.com.
During your appointment, the staff member speaking with you will inform you if there is a column in the booth as well as where in the booth it may be. If you agree to take a booth with a column in it, you will also receive the exact specifications of that booth with the column dimensions and location that same day.
We know there are inevitable schedule or technology challenges, and we recognize the importance of the booth selection opportunity. Therefore, we make sure no one is penalized by missing their appointment. If that should happen, we will select the best booth available at that time based on the criteria listed by you (e.g., size, configuration, past booth locations). That being said, we encourage every exhibitor to put in as much information as possible in their application of what specifically is being requested so we can accommodate you as best as possible, as well as additional contact information, if necessary or appropriate. After a space is assigned, we will promptly send a confirmation email with the selected booth location and you will be free to reach back to us and inquire about alternative options that may be available at that time.
