NSSF SHOT Show 2023 Las Vegas Jan 17-20

The shooting sports and firearms trade association, National Shooting Sports Foundation® will hold SHOT Show 2023 on Tuesday, January 17 through Friday, January 20 at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas. The Exhibit Halls and Supplier Showcase for firearms, tactical products & accessories, shooting sports, outdoor recreation open at 8:30 AM and close 5:30 PM Tuesday through Thursday and 4:00 PM on Friday. The Law Enforcement ballrooms open at 8:00 AM every day. 

SHOT Show, the world’s premier exposition for shooting sports and largest hunting, Law Enforcement, tactical products, outdoor recreation, and outdoor trade show in the United States is open to law enforcement industries, industry professionals and commercial buyers only. No background check is required to exhibit or attend, but unlike a gun show, it’s not open to the general public. SHOT Show is an excellent opportunity for sellers, commercial buyers, and other industry professionals to get together and network.

Is FastBound an exhibitor at SHOT Show 2023?

Definitely. You can find FastBound on Venetian Expo Level 1, at booth 41126 on the official attendees floorpan map. As you can see on the map, the show floors are filling up fast. 2022 had a great turnout and 2023 looks like it’s going to be even better. We look forward to seeing you there.

If you have never been to this comprehensive trade show, or you haven’t been since the Caesars Forum expansion, NSSF published an interactive tour map which covers Caesars Forum and the Sands Expo. Exhibitor registration closed months ago but booth changes are always possible up to the last minute because cancellations and booth changes create a perfect opportunity for other exhibitors to move around and upgrade their booths.

Hotels & Travel

SHOT Shot is held at the Venetian Expo Convention Center and Caesars Forum Convention Center in Las Vegas, so booking at the Venetian or Palazzo is the probably the most convenient hotel option if you do not want to deal with the hassle of parking a vehicle.

In partnership with onPeak, NSSF has secured discounted rates at a selection of Las Vegas hotels. NSSF knows plans change, so to help ease your travel planning, onPeak, the only official hotel provider for 2023 SHOT Show, offers convenient hotel options with flexible change and cancellation policies. They encourage you to book through them early for the best selection and price.

The NSSF warns exhibitors and attendees to be vigilant if you are approached by any other companies or service providers other than the official NSSF travel partners that imply or claim to be an official travel or housing provider of the NSSF or SHOT Show 2023. 

NSSF has been made aware of other housing companies and travel agencies that may be aggressively pursuing exhibitors and attendees, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significantly discounted rates. Reservations that are made through an agency other than Venetian / Palazzo or onPeak will be made at your own risk.

Some of the companies reported to NSSF for this type of soliciting in the past, yet are not affiliated with the SHOT Show include:

  • Book My Rooms, LLC
  • Convention Housing Management
  • Convention Expo Travel
  • Elite Corporate Planners
  • Expo Housing
  • Global Housing Corporation
  • IEP Group
  • International Events
  • NHA Hotel Deals
  • Premier Connections
  • TradeShow Housing
