Nevada itself has surpassed 1,000 new COVID-19 cases twice this week. Citing that and the rise of new cases across the world, the SHOT Show convention has officially announced that they've cancelled their event that was scheduled to take place in January 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
NSSF President and CEO Joe Bartozzi released a statement that said, “Due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases throughout the world, NSSF, the firearm industry trade association, today makes the difficult announcement that the 2021 SHOT Show has been cancelled.”
“While there has been a concerted effort to expand the allowable levels for large gatherings by the county and state, with positivity rates peaking during our key planning period we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 show.”
The NSSF and show partners have been working behind the scenes to plan their largest show in history. With the convention cancelled for 2021, they are sure that the 2022 SHOT Show that'll take place on January 18-22, 2022 will “undoubtedly be the best in our industry's history.”
They ask for your continued support at this time so they are able to keep helping businesses in the industry succeed.
