NSSF tried something new this year at Shot Show and hosted an exclusive Supplier Show. The premise for the Supplier Show was exhibitors would be able to connect with suppliers for items they need. We were fortunate enough via our sponsors to get access to the supplier show to take a quick peek at the setup.
There was well over 200 suppliers on hand this year and the setup was very clean and streamlined. The show was on the 5th floor of the Venitian, only a few floors above the main show. The suppliers each had their own table and could bring in product samples or TV’s displaying their products or services in use.
The types of suppliers included numerous companies from the following industries:
- Milling Parts
- Metal Extrusions
- OE Materials
It was a packed house and many of the suppliers were engaging with prospective buyers. We were fortunate to partner with one company in particular, that we will be testing out and reviewing one of his products in the near future, so stay tuned for that! I have a feeling this will be back next year bigger than before.
