The National Shooting Sports Foundation and Reed Exhibitions have terminated an agreement for the management of the NSSF’s annual Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show, according to an NSSF statement.
“Reed Exhibitions provided excellent service to NSSF and the customers of the SHOT Show for more than three decades,” the statement noted. “However, the company’s decision to restrict the sale of certain types of firearms this year at its consumer hunting and fishing show—an event unrelated to NSSF and the SHOT Show—was in conflict with NSSF’s mission to serve the shooting sports industry. As a result, both organizations decided it was in the best interest of the SHOT Show to end their relationship.”
NSSF has started the search for a new company to manage and produce the SHOT Show beginning in 2014. The 2014 SHOT Show is scheduled for January 14–17, 2014, at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
