SHOT Show 2015 Exhibitor Academy—We Want You!

April 6, 2015 By Chris Dol­nack, Senior Vice Pres­i­dent and Chief Mar­ket­ing Offi­cer

It is with great pride and excite­ment that NSSF is mak­ing plans for its sec­ond annu­al SHOT Show Exhibitor Acad­e­my. Fol­low­ing on the tremen­dous suc­cess of last year’s inau­gur­al event, this year’s Acad­e­my is set to be big­ger, bet­ter and even more infor­ma­tive than the first.

Sched­uled for June 16–18 in Las Vegas, Neva­da, the 2015 SHOT Show Exhibitor Acad­e­my is two and half days of edu­ca­tion­al sem­i­nars designed to help our SHOT Show exhibitors:

  • Tar­get buy­ers
  • Max­i­mize return on invest­ment
  • Get their brands noticed
  • Orga­nize and main­tain a show bud­get
  • Cap­i­tal­ize on the Exhibitor Resource Cen­ter

In addi­tion to these impor­tant edu­ca­tion ses­sions, dur­ing this year’s Acad­e­my exhibitors will have a chance to inter­act direct­ly with SHOT Show man­age­ment and per­son­nel from NSSF, Con­vExx, Free­man, Cen­tu­ry Secu­ri­ty and the Venetian/Palazzo. Atten­dees will also be able to tour the entire Sands Expo Cen­ter and meet with show con­trac­tors offer­ing a vari­ety of booth ser­vices such as light­ing and cater­ing. The Acad­e­my is an excel­lent place to net­work with oth­er exhibitors, learn­ing what works and doesn’t work straight from the horse’s mouth, and atten­dees will also have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn about spe­cial dis­counts on ser­vices from a vari­ety of show con­trac­tors.

To ful­ly real­ize the results we expect our exhibitors to gain from attend­ing the 2015 SHOT Show Exhibitor Acad­e­my, NSSF offers this event free of charge to any SHOT Show exhibitor with reserved booth space for the 2016 SHOT Show. In addi­tion to com­pli­men­ta­ry admis­sion to the Acad­e­my itself, NSSF will also pro­vide hotel rooms, trans­porta­tion to the Sands from your hotel of choice if need­ed and break­fast, lunch and evening recep­tions for the dura­tion of the Acad­e­my. All you need to do is apply to attend and book your flight to Vegas.

More than 97 per­cent of exhibitors attend­ing last year’s SHOT Show Acad­e­my said they’d def­i­nite­ly rec­om­mend the Acad­e­my to oth­er exhibitors. Reser­va­tions are open now, but seat­ing is lim­it­ed. Appli­ca­tions to attend will be approved in a first-come, first-served basis, so reserve your place now.
