It seems that the cooler post-Labor Day weather has prompted an early hatch of hotel scammers trying to separate SHOT Show exhibitors from their money and perhaps leave them without a place to lay their head in Las Vegas.
That’s why we caution all SHOT Show attendees and exhibitors to be wary of third-party services when booking your rooms for the show. In years past we received reports of unscrupulous hotel room resellers taking payment from SHOT Show attendees and exhibitors without actually booking the rooms. The ringleader of one of those parasitic posses is currently enjoying the hospitality of Nevada Department of Corrections.
Just last week we received several calls and emails from exhibitors who were solicited by a high pressure salesperson who urged the exhibitors to get their rooms for the SHOT Show while they could. I can assure you that no one affiliated with the SHOT Show will ever solicit you. And if they do, I want to hear from you.
Not booking through the SHOT Show’s official housing bureau, onPeak, can be risky. The safest way to make your SHOT Show hotel reservations is through the SHOT Show website.
We want you to have a great experience at the 2013 SHOT Show and the surest way to start down that path is to register for your credentials and book your rooms early. If you are booking a block of more than 20 rooms, onPeak can help you manage that efficiently.
