How Technology Helps Maximize the SHOT Show Experience

It’s a given that jump-starting your SHOT Show experience is essential. The My Show Planner online aid can help SHOT attendees plan their schedules in the smartest logistical way possible. This resource will help them navigate the show floor, keep track of appointments, and find new products and services, among other conveniences. You can review the entire SHOT Show layout, search for exhibitors, find specials, search for brands and much more. Then you can map out your own planned schedule and route!

One NSSF member, Scott Foster, president of Catskill Mountains Firearms, LLC says, “As a new FFL, 2012 was my first SHOT Show, and I knew it would be challenging. I used the My Show Planner several weeks before to lay out the important stops for me. The free mobile app came in handy in the mornings when I’d get to the show early, pick up SHOT Daily, and compare it to what I wanted to do for the day and make my changes.”

The response has been very positive from those who availed themselves of this service in 2012, and even more SHOT Show participants are expected to make use of it for the 2014 show. You can find a link to the My Show Planner at

  1. It would be helpful to be able to print a high quality map of the floors on a printer. The My Show is great for online planning but I also like to have a physical map to add notes and highlight vendors I need to see. They have them at the show but I would rather start my planning now.
