The SHOT Show is requiring individual unique email addresses for attendees, exhibiting personnel and media.

The reasons for this are:

  • Using a unique email address will allow each SHOT Show badge holder to utilize and customize the online show planner and the show's mobile app.
  • All attendees will be able to receive timely SHOT Show information and communications.
  • Finally, the use of unique email addresses will help us in identifying non-qualified attendees.

With your help, we can ensure that all exhibitors and attendees receive all the information they need, are able to utilize the show planner to its fullest and also help us in our continued efforts to ensure the SHOT Show remains a trade-only event with qualified attendees and exhibiting personnel.
