In the week since the announcement that NSSF and Reed Exhibitions have ended our highly successful three decades long SHOT Show partnership, a number of exhibitors have called or emailed to ask for clarification on a variety of issues. In the interest of keeping our customers informed, here are the answers to some of the more commonly asked questions.
Q. When will NSSF name a new show management company?
A. We hope to select a new SHOT Show partner in June.
Q: I just made my second payment installment for my 2014 exhibit space. How will NSSF know that I paid Reed?
A. All SHOT Show payments go directly into an NSSF owned and managed account as they have for several years now. There should be no issue with payments being properly credited.
Q. I recently requested that my exhibit be moved to another area of the exhibit area. When will booth moves take place?
A. All booth move requests that have been filed will be addressed in June in order of SHOT Show Priority Points as we have for the past two years.
Q. Will the show be moving from Las Vegas?
A. We have signed agreements that will keep the SHOT Show at the Sands Expo through the 2016 show. We are hopeful that the show will remain at the Sands in 2017 and beyond and we will be working towards that end.
That’s all the news that’s fit to print for the moment. Diedra and I will keep you posted as news develops. If you have any further questions, please contact us.
