I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be attending my very first SHOTShow® in Las Vegas, NV from January 20-23, 2015! I’ll be there on behalf of Counter Cultured to cover guns. (Thank you, Michelle S., for the recommendation and encouragement to apply!)
What’s SHOTShow®? Here’s more from the event page:
SHOT Show® is the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade ShowSM and Conference for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting accessories industry.
In addition, the show offers a uniquely diverse Law Enforcement and Armed Forces section for agency and department purchasing agents.
The largest trade show of its kind in the world and the fifth largest trade show in Las Vegas, the SHOT Show features more than 1,600 exhibitors filling booth space covering 630,000 net square feet. The show, which is a trade-only event, attracts more than 65,000 industry professionals from all 50 states and 100 countries.
Attendance at the SHOT Show is RESTRICTED to the shooting, hunting and outdoor trade; and commercial buyers and sellers of military, law enforcement, and tactical products and services ONLY. The show is not open to the public and NO one under age 16 shall be admitted (including infants).
Admission to the show requires government-issued photo identification plus documentation demonstrating direct, professional affiliation to the trade. Show exhibitors and media are subject to different credentialing requirements.
I haven’t been back to the West since I moved away from Southern California permanently in September 2012, so I’m excited to venture out there again. (Don’t worry–Sin City won’t get the best of me. Vegas has more to offer than crazy partying!) Excited to see cool guns, network with others, and go hotel hopping once again. (Bellagio fountain show, to-die for Paris Hotel crepes, Venetian shoppes? Count me in!)
I’ll be chronicling the event here and at Counter Cultured. Stay tuned!
Who else plans to attend? Hope to see you there!
