First 2010 SHOT Show Newsletter Offers Travel Info

The first edition of NSSF’s SHOT Show Blast for the 2010 show in Las Vegas is now online. Featured are details on the latest SHOT Show survey results, a look at the new venue for 2010 and information on how to make travel plans for the show.

NEW Location for Vegas SHOT Show
The 2010 SHOT Show will NOT be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center as in years past. For 2010, SHOT Show will be housed in the Sands Expo Center (MegaCenter), located next to the Venetian hotel on the Vegas Strip. The main entrance to the show is on Sands Ave., diagonally northeast of the Venetian.

2010 SHOT Show MegaCenter

It’s not too early to start planning for the show, which runs Jan 19-22, 2010. Blocks of rooms are already selling out at some hotels. While the Venetian/Palazzo is very, very expensive, just south of the MegaCenter are the Harrah’s Hotel/Casino, the Imperial Palace, and the Flamingo. Harrah’s is probably the best choice of the three, but rooms are selling quickly. There are still rooms available in the Imperial Palace for under $50.00 per night. However, this is an older hotel lacking the amenities of most modern Las Vegas hotels

To book rooms for the 2010 SHOT Show, you can log on to the SHOT Show Travel Desk. This travel service offers rooms in 19 major Las Vegas hotels, offering a “best rate pledge.” We found the SHOT Travel Desk rates to be good, but sometimes lower prices could be found on discount sites such as Hotels.com and Priceline.com. It pays to shop around.
