2013 SHOT Show by NSSF Januay 15-18, 2013

2013 SHOT SHOW
Januay 15-18, 2013
Sands Expo & Convention Center
Las Vegas, NV











It's that time again.  2012 is almost half way over and that means that it's time to start thinking about the next installment of the annual Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) show.

The SHOT Show is described as "the largest and most comprehensive trade show for all professionals involved with the shooting sports and hunting industries."  and the world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, archery, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, camping and related products and services.  SHOT brings in attendees from all over the US and from more than 100 countries around the globe. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), a firearms industry trade association formed in 1961, is responsible for bringing this valuable resource to the industry. NSSF's mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports and their membership includes more than 6,500 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen's organizations and publishers.


The Big Show
SHOT is the largest trade show of its kind in the world and the fifth largest trade show in Las Vegas, a city of trade shows, and the 2012 SHOT Show did not disappoint.  The 2012 show set an overall attendance record of more than 61,000, setting records for buyers at 36,383 and media at 2,466. Despite show organizers intentionally scaling down the the show to better accommodate attendees show site, roughly 1,600 exhibitors filled booth space covering 630,000 net square feet.

 
Come on Down
Attendance to the SHOT Show is restricted to those in the shooting, hunting and outdoor trade and commercial buyers and sellers of military, law enforcement and tactical products and services (and you must be able to prove it).  No attendees under age 16 will be admitted.  Be sure to read the additional attendance rules before heading out to the show.

If you're not a member of the trades but you would like to attend, ask around among your friends who are in the industry.  Depending on the type of registration package purchased, many exhibitors and attendees may have "guest passes" available.

The 2013 show runs from Januay 15-18, 2013 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Show hours are as follows:


Tuesday, January 15         8:30am-5:30pm
Wednesday, January 16         8:30am-5:30pm
Thursday, January 17         8:30am-5:30pm
Friday, January 18         8:30am-4:00pm


More Information
For more information and updates, be sure to keep an eye on this thread as well as the SHOT Show website and the SHOT Show blog.

New account created for posting 2013 SHOT Show news on the forums!  This is where we'll be posting updates before, during and after the show about exciting new products and services being unveiled as well as lots of pictures.  As both show attendees and firearms enthusiasts, we are among the lucky few who get to see breakthrough products all in one place and often before they even hit the shelves.  With media credentials, we will be among the even-fewer of the lucky few who will have the opportunity to photograph (and, in some cases, even shoot) the newest of the new products.

Keep your eyes on this thread for news, photos, reviews and more.  Updates will be posted here on the forums, on the GunLink Blog, on Twitter and other social media and may be made available for use by third parties.

Be sure to let us know what you want to see us cover during the show and we will do our best to cover it for you!  Our goal is to provide you with the information you want about the topics you love.

If you'll be exhibiting at the show, feel free to drop some hints here in this thread about what you'll be showing this year.


Finally, we have a limited number of special 2013 SHOT Show Coverage sponsorship opportunities.  This is the perfect way to gain exposure to a targeted audience for your related business.  Contact us today to learn more.

Thanks, ArmaLite.  The SHOT Mobile app was an invaluable tool during the last SHOT Show. It's a great way for attendees to keep track of who they want to visit, who they've already visited, take notes, track schedules and more.


ArmaLite Returns as Title Sponsor of SHOT Mobile App


NEWTOWN, Conn. -- ArmaLite Inc., the internationally known manufacturer of AR-10, M-15, AR-30 and AR-50 rifles, has again signed on as the title sponsor of SHOT Mobile for the 2013 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade ShowSM (SHOT Show®).

SHOT Show attendees will find the SHOT Mobile app an invaluable tool for searching exhibitors, navigating the show floor via interactive maps, finding new products, learning about show specials, viewing the show's education schedule such as for SHOT Show® UniversitySM, setting up appointments with exhibitors, requesting callbacks and finding show services.

With its renewed sponsorship, ArmaLite joins Outdoor Channel and NBC Sports Network as major industry supporters of the SHOT Show.

"We're excited to have ArmaLite return as our partner for SHOT Mobile," said Chris Dolnack, NSSF senior vice president and chief marketing officer. "It's fitting that a company that prides itself in product technology innovation is sponsoring the navigation technology that will enhance the SHOT Show experience for our buyers and attendees."

"The 2012 SHOT Mobile app was successful beyond all our expectations. The traffic it drove to ArmaLite's booth, and the resulting sales, proved the app's efficacy. From what we've already seen, the 2013 SHOT Mobile app will be even better," said ArmaLite president Mark Westrom.

The SHOT Show is owned and sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry, and is produced and managed by Reed Exhibitions. The show is the largest of its kind in the world, attracting more than 60,000 attendees and 1,600 companies exhibiting firearms, ammunition, outdoor apparel, law enforcement, optics, cutlery and related products and services.

In recognition of its continued support, ArmaLite's logo will be featured on the splash screen of the SHOT Mobile app, on the SHOT Mobile webpage at www.shotshow.org and in the app download section of iTunes, in addition to the company receiving other sponsorship and text-messaging advantages.

ArmaLite has one of the broadest product lines in the firearms industry. ArmaLite (www.armalite.com) manufactures and sells semiautomatic rifles in a variety of calibers including 5.56mm and 7.62mm, long range super-accurate bolt action rifles in calibers including .308 Winchester, .300 Winchester Magnum, .338 Lapua, and 50 BMG, and classic 9mm pistols.

Learn more about the mobile app by going to the SHOT Mobile website. Also, sign up to be notified when the 2013 SHOT Mobile app is ready to download to your smartphone.

The SHOT Show will run January 15-18 at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas. Learn more about the show at www.shotshow.org.

Exhibitors still have time to get in on the pre-SHOT Show action of Media Day at the Range.  The Monday before the show, exhibitors have the opportunity to showcase their wares to media personnel covering the event and media personnel have the opportunity to get a peak at the latest and greatest guns and gear - often before it's even on the shelves.

Time is running out to get signed up though...


SHOT Show Media Day at the Range 2013 Exhibitor Registration Closing on Nov. 30, 2012

Presently there are only a limited number of shotgun, airgun and archery stations remaining. There are also non-shooting exhibit and demo areas available. All long and short range positions are sold out. Manufacturers may register for the event by visiting www.media-day.com/ExhibitorRegistration. Exhibitor registration will close on Nov. 30.

With the support of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the eighth annual SHOT Show Media Day at the RangeTM will be on Monday, Jan. 14, 2013, at the Boulder City Pistol & Rifle Range, Boulder City, Nev.

Registered exhibitors should visit the Media Day Sponsorship and Advertising page to further enhance your exposure at this key industry event by signing up for one of the many opportunities listed.

A full schedule of events will be posted on the www.media-day.com website in December.

For additional information, contact Cory Cannon with Triple Curl at ccannon@triplecurl.com or Cathy Williams with CMG Marketing & Events at cathy@cmgmarketingandevents.com.

If I went to a show like that I would probably be thrown out for drooling on everything.  That doesn't make me want to go any less though!  I can't wait to see what new stuff is headed our way.
