|September 27, 2023||How to Keep Controllable Costs from Careening Out of Control||As you know, SHOT Show is a must attend show for the shooting, hunting and oudoor industry but that doesn't mean it has to break the bank. In this session, NSSF's Chris Dolnack will help you better understand your controllable costs, how to keep them in control and, ultimately, how to maximize your investment at SHOT Show. We'll follow up the presentation with a brief Q&A.||Chris Dolnack|
|October 18, 2023||SHOT Show 2024 Speed Idea Exchange for Small Exhibitors | Get Robyn's Top Tips and Share Yours Too!||Even though it may not always feel like it, the majority of SHOT Show exhibitors are “small exhibitors” (10x10, 10x20, and similar sized booths), which means: if you’ve been trying to figure out how to stretch your staff or your budget, squeeze all of your big ideas into one small space, or compete with larger companies, you aren’t alone.|
In this new and special session, you will collaborate with your peers to overcome all of these challenges and more!
Have you heard of speed dating or speed networking? Well, this is a “speed idea exchange” where, after getting some context and quick tips from Robyn on a topic, you’ll split off to quickly trade ideas with other small exhibitors who get exactly what you’re going through.
** This is the only Exhibitor Academy session that’s a “meeting format” vs. a “webinar format,” so you’ll be expected to turn your camera on and speak with your peers during parts of this session. Please be in a quiet place, with your webcam (and ideas/experiences and questions) ready.
|November 15, 2023||Next Level Networking at SHOT Show 2024 | Take Full Advantage of Opportunities Beyond Your Booth||We sometimes hear people say that at trade shows like SHOT Show “off of the trade show floor is where the real work gets done.” Whether or not that rings true for you, you’ll still want to do your best to take full advantage of any opportunities beyond your booth. In this fast-paced, interactive session, you will:|
• Prepare to optimize your on-site schedule, with examples of networking opportunities
• Outline a simple, step-by-step process for productive networking and explain how to apply it to different situations (no need for awkwardness or nerves!)
• Decide what comes after the networking, with “next step” suggestions from Robyn
• Get answers to your top networking (and other questions) – submit them in your registration or during the session
Note: even if you’re managing all of the logistics/strategy for SHOT Show 2024 on behalf of your company and typically attend Exhibitor Academy sessions alone, it would be a good idea to invite your team to join you on this one!
|November 29, 2023||Lead Retrieval & List Sales||In this session, experts from Maritz will share with you how lead retrieval and list sales tools can maximize your investment through all phases of the SHOT Show. We'll follow up the presentation with a brief Q&A.||Maritz Team &|
|December 13, 2023||Your Final Checklist for SHOT Show 2024 | Often Overlooked Last Minute Tasks that Matter Most ...and More!||By the final month before SHOT Show 2024, you should be feeling confident because you’ve put in the work and just need to get your team across the finish line. In reality, that isn’t always how things turn out (no judgement!) and some exhibitors will be feeling a bit stressed as they try to cram several months of hard work into just one. In either case, this session can help you.|
Our favorite trade show trainer, Robyn at Exhibitors WINH, is back to review the often-overlooked last minute trade show tasks that matter most with you, highlighting resources and opportunities you may have missed. Plus, she’ll address your most important last-minute questions and share updates from the SHOT Show team.
** Pro Tip: this time of year may be especially busy, so make sure you’ve got this session on your schedule. Robyn’s advice may just be what you need to get your exhibiting efforts (back) on track and keep them there.
