SHOT Show 2015 in Vegas Second Largest EVER! The Industry's ON FIRE! 64,000 Gun Dealers Attend!
SECOND HIGHEST ATTENDANCE EVER . . . NSSF's SHOT Show rang up its second highest attendance ever last week, giving the industry a very good indicator that a strong sales year lies ahead. Long a bellwether for the industry's prospects, the SHOT Show brings together buyers and sellers from the U.S. and more than 100 countries.
Total attendance was nearly 64,000, second only to last year's record-setting event, attended by nearly 67,000. Lower attendance reflected strengthened pre-screening of attendees to enhance the overall experience of both exhibitors and buyers. "We know from long experience that attendance at the SHOT Show is a reflection of the state of our industry," said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "This second highest attendance is in keeping with what we saw in the past year -- that our industry is in good health and that manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers have a positive outlook for this year."
