Important Information For Media

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 41st SHOT Show, Jan. 22 to 25, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. Before you arrive, we want you to know about several improvements to services that will affect credentialed media. At the same time, please take a moment to review the longstanding services and amenities that will help make your time spent at SHOT profitable and enjoyable. 

SHOT Show BadgesNo Advance Mailing of Badges
As you know from the email confirmation of your credentials, SHOT Show badges will no longer be mailed to you. Pre-registered media can pick up their badges in the Press Room on Level 3 of the Venetian on Sunday, Jan. 20, from 3 to 5 p.m., Monday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and during regular Press Room hours (listed below) during the show. Please remember to bring a photo ID and your confirmation email. Media invited to Industry Day at the Range may pick up their show badges at the range (you will not need your badge to board the free bus transportation to the range). A general reminder: Always wear your media badge while at the show and, for security purposes, it’s good practice to remove your badge when outside the show, such as in your hotel lobby or a restaurant.

SHOT Show Media RoomNew Digital Press Kits
SHOT Show has transitioned to a new Digital Press Kit site to make it easier for media to access exhibitor press materials prior to, during and after the show, and to help reduce the amount of wasted printed materials. You can access the Digital Press Kit section by signing in with your badge number and last name via this link. The link also will be available in the show’s Online Newsroom. Additionally, exhibitor press kits can be accessed in the Press Room via dedicated computer terminals that will be connected to a printer. There will no longer be media materials bins in the press room.

​​​​​​Photo LibraryNew Show Photo Library
SHOT Show again will make photos of the show available at no cost to media for use in their show coverage. However, SHOT Show 2019 photos will not be available on Flickr as in years past but on this SHOT Show photo library site, where you’ll log in with your email address to download photos. The link also will be available in the Online Newsroom
