What to Expect at SHOT Las Vegas 2020
SHOT Show Las Vegas is almost upon us. Starting January 21st the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, NV will be filled with all things shooting, outdoor, and law enforcement. There are a variety of events throughout the week which we will highlight below.
Before moving on, we want to let you know StatGear will be participating in SHOT SHOW Las Vegas! We would love to say hello and show you around our booth. You can find us Wednesday during the Pop-Up Preview in Booth #61737.
NSSF/HAVA Golf Classic - Jan 19th
The Sunday before the official expo begins the show is hosting a Golf Classic. The event will host over 100+ industry professionals at Bear’s Best Las Vegas. The outing does require the purchase of another event ticket. However, the proceeds of the classic go toward supporting the Honored American Verterans Afield (HAVA).
The HAVA helps with the integration and healing of veterans back into civilian life. Along with a round of golf, the ticket includes breakfast, lunch, transportation, and even a raffle. If this combination of golf and a good cause sound up your alley, you can find more info here.
SHOT University - Jan 20th
The week starts off with SHOT University. All Monday long SHOT will host a variety of speakers, leaders, and educators. Some of the topics covered include: “Vendor Networking”, “Enhancing Shooter Experience”, “Instagram Masterclass”, and “The Business of Freedom”.
Since SHOT University is a “separate” event tickets are also extra. Although, if you are a Premium Retail or Range member” you will get your first ticket free. You can find more on the classes and prices here.
Supplier Showcase - Jan 20th / 21st
The Supplier Showcase is a two day event hosting over 500+ suppliers. The showcase will be in the Palazzo Ballroom on the 5th floor of the Venetian Hotel Meeting Room. Over the course of two days suppliers and manufactures can discuss and present their materials and solutions.
The products on display range from tools to fabrics to logistics. The SHOT Show team has created a database and search engine to browse all the vendors participating. You can find more details on the showcase and the vendor list here.
State of the Industry - Jan 21st
The State of the Industry is a 2-hour event taking place Tuesday night. The show starts off with a cocktail reception at 5:30pm. Then, the night moves into a 45 minute presentation highlighting the industry’s accomplishments and future. Followed up by an intermission and a 45-minute set from Comedian Henry Cho to end the night.
Its a night for networking, maybe some drinks, and definitely some laughs. The State of Industry is a great way to meet others in the industry while having some fun. More information and tickets can be found here.

Finally, what we’re most excited about the Pop-Up Preview. The Pop-Up is about showcasing the leading and up-coming manufacturers in the industry. The event focuses on teams innovating and creating entirely new lines of products.
