SHOT Show 2018
This exhibition took place on 23rd - 26th January in the Sands Expo centre, Las Vegas.
The SHOT Show is the largest and most comprehensive trade show for all professionals involved with the shooting sports, hunting and law enforcement industries.
It is the world’s premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services. The SHOT Show attracts buyers from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. It is owned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).
GTA (Exhibitions) Ltd reserved 3,000 sq ft and employs the services of an experienced exhibition company to build a contemporary Pavilion, complete with electricity, carpet, lighting, and furniture. A dedicated member of staff was on hand for the duration of the whole event to offer on-site assistance to all UK companies.
Below is the list of UK companies who exhibited on the British Pavilion, which is located on Level 2 close to the main entrance to the Hall. For more information on each exhibiting company just follow the links below.
The 40th Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show, owned and operated by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, celebrated this milestone with more events than ever before. Strong attendance, optimistic buyers and sellers, and a series of packed special events that jointly made up “SHOT Week” resulted in another top-rated SHOT Show.
The SHOT Show has grown exponentially since it started in 1979, in St. Louis. That inaugural show attracted 5,600 attendees and had 290 exhibitors covering 51,153 net square feet of exhibit space. Compare that to the 2018 show with an attendance of more than 60,000 and attracting 1,660 exhibiting companies occupying more than 645,000 net square feet of space, completing filling the Sands Expo. Taking the new, two-day Suppliers Showcase into account, more than 2,100 companies exhibited at SHOT Show this year.

Over the last 40 years, IWA OutdoorClassics has developed into a world-leading trade fair for hunting, shooting sports, equipment for outdoor activities and for civilian and official security applications.
Whether hunting accessories or personal protection: The world-leading trade fair IWA OutdoorClassics shows high-quality guns and outdoor products from international suppliers and the best-known manufacturers and members of the trade meet here.
The British Pavilion has long been established at this event and covered almost 500 sq metres.We played host to UK companies, covering products ranging from quality tweeds, ammunition, shotguns, air rifles, giftware, and antiques.
The GTA had a manned information stand, with the Director on site, to answer questions and give advice on a myriad of subjects related to the sporting firearms industry. We also provided an industry experienced translator, kitchen facilities with complimentary refreshments and a private meeting room for our Pavilion exhibitors.
As the Trade Challenge Partner working with the Department for International Trade we organise Tradeshow Access Programme grants for new and eligible exporting companies, and this year we are pleased to announce that 22 companies have benefited from this service.
