A regular attendee of SHOT Show emailed me to say that the NSSF was charging him 250% more to attend SHOT Show next year than they did this year, and sent me documentation to prove it. Last year he was charged $50, this year he is required to pay $175.
Industry employees have been complaining about the fee increase online. Earlier this year the NSSF terminated their contract with Reed Exhibitions who managed the show in 2013 after they banned gun companies from attending the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show. The show is managed by Convexx. Maybe this is why there is a fee increase.
