It is with great pride and excitement that NSSF is making plans for its second annual SHOT Show Exhibitor Academy. Following on the tremendous success of last year’s inaugural event, this year’s Academy is set to be bigger, better and even more informative than the first.
Scheduled for June 16-18 in Las Vegas, Nevada, the 2015 SHOT Show Exhibitor Academy is two and half days of educational seminars designed to help our SHOT Show exhibitors:
- Target buyers
- Maximize return on investment
- Get their brands noticed
- Organize and maintain a show budget
- Capitalize on the Exhibitor Resource Center
In addition to these important education sessions, during this year’s Academy exhibitors will have a chance to interact directly with SHOT Show management and personnel from NSSF, ConvExx, Freeman, Century Security and the Venetian/Palazzo. Attendees will also be able to tour the entire Sands Expo Center and meet with show contractors offering a variety of booth services such as lighting and catering. The Academy is an excellent place to network with other exhibitors, learning what works and doesn’t work straight from the horse’s mouth, and attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about special discounts on services from a variety of show contractors.
To fully realize the results we expect our exhibitors to gain from attending the 2015 SHOT Show Exhibitor Academy, NSSF offers this event free of charge to any SHOT Show exhibitor with reserved booth space for the 2016 SHOT Show. In addition to complimentary admission to the Academy itself, NSSF will also provide hotel rooms, transportation to the Sands from your hotel of choice if needed and breakfast, lunch and evening receptions for the duration of the Academy. All you need to do is apply to attend and book your flight to Vegas.
More than 97 percent of exhibitors attending last year’s SHOT Show Academy said they’d definitely recommend the Academy to other exhibitors. Reservations are open now, but seating is limited. Applications to attend will be approved in a first-come, first-served basis, so reserve your place now.
