3 Reasons Why SHOT is the Best Trade Show in the U.S.

If you haven't been to SHOT Show, you need to add it to your bucket list.

When it comes to shooting sports, SHOT Show is sort of like the Super Bowl. Everyone's tuned it, everyone wants to go and the main event is just one aspect of the entire experience.

Here are three reasons SHOT Show is the best trade show in the country:

The Size

If you ever want to make a trip to SHOT Show, be sure to bring your walking shoes. You're going to put some miles on your legs if you want to cover half of the venue. About 60,000 people attend the show every year at the 630,000-square-foot Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Additionally, as you could imagine, the city makes the entire experience feel even bigger.

The New Stuff

SHOT tends to be the place where the newest products and general news are announced. The massive audience, paired with the constant publicity, creates an ideal place for brands to showcase their new launches. As an attendee, you'll have the opportunity to see products brands haven't released yet.

Like-Minded Folks

As hunters and shooters, it's not always easy to find people with similar interests. When we do find a like-minded person, we find ourselves talking to them for hours. Imagine a world where everyone wanted to talk guns, ammo and hunts with you. That's all that's here at SHOT, so it's hard not to make friends.

Our SHOT Show 2018 coverage is brought to you in partnership with Federal Premium Ammunition, and will continue during and after the Show, which takes place January 23-26, 2018.
