The 29th Annual SHOT Show

The 29th annual SHOT Show ―the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show―is set for the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Jan. 11-14. Owned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF ), which is the industry trade association, and managed by Reed Exhibitions, the show will attract exhibitors, buyers and media from 50 states and 75 countries. The show features previews of the industry's newest products that will adorn the shelves of gun and sporting goods shops in the coming year.

SHOT Show has reached record proportions yet again. With more than 1, 900 exhibiting companies, total exhibit space is now at 653, 000 square feet and still growing, meaning the 2007 show is already more than 36, 000 square feet larger than last year's record-setting show. SHOT Show was honored this year by Tradeshow Week magazine as one of its "Fastest 50, " an award given annually to tradeshows with the greatest growth in net square footage over the preceding three years. Tradeshow Week ranks SHOT Show as the nation's 27th largest tradeshow.

Last year, a record 1, 200-plus members of the media attended. NSSF encourages pre-registration to avoid lines and waiting to register on site.
