Published on  Updated on  

January 2024 – The Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) is renowned as the largest and most comprehensive trade show for professionals in the shooting sports, hunting, and law enforcement industries. As the world's premier exposition of firearms, ammunition, law enforcement gear, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services, the SHOT Show draws manufacturers, retailers, and agencies from all 50 states and over 100 countries. 

This year, Wilbur’s Finest was honored with an invitation to attend as product sourcing consultants for a Firearms Manufacturer Company, marking our inaugural participation in this prestigious event. As this was our first year of participating, the team didn’t know what to expect but we left the event with relevant insights, reignited motivation, and new memories.

Here are the highlights of our SHOT Show 2024 experience!

One of the unique aspects of SHOT Show is its exclusive focus on industry professionals. Unlike consumer-focused events, no retail sales are allowed on-site. This prohibition created an environment dedicated solely to networking, collaboration, and showcasing the latest innovations in the shooting sports and outdoor industries.
