Beware of SHOT Show List Scams

There have been several emails fraudulently claiming to have and sell the SHOT Show's attendee list. Please beware, they often use the show name, show logo or show organizer name in their signature. These companies have no association with the SHOT Show. We report all scammers to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission fraud division and we encourage you to do so as well.

A listing of our official partners can also be found in the Contact List of the Exhibitor Resource Center. As for unauthorized publications or directories, please know that the only official directory is the one distributed by NSSF and the SHOT Show, and the official show daily is distributed by Grand View Outdoors. There is no Outdoor Industry News or Fair Guide affiliated with the SHOT Show, and any communications you may receive from a company from Outdoor Industry News or from companies outside the United States regarding a directory listing is not associated with the SHOT Show.

SHOT Show does not rent, share, or sell your email or physical address to any third parties.


SHOT Show room blocks are available for booking through the SHOT Show website, and please remember that the only official SHOT Show housing providers are onPeak and The Venetian/Palazzo. Numerous convention bureaus are reporting complaints from trade shows whose exhibiting companies or attendees booked rooms through a “third party room broker” and ended up at sold out hotels with no reservations and no recourse for the payment of rooms. These brokers falsely imply they are affiliated with show management and secure deposits and/or full prepayment fraudulently. Please use this link to reserve your hotel room.
