The SHOT Show that the NSSF puts on every year will not longer be managed Reed Exhibitions. While there is an official statement, but if I had to guess the events earlier in the year when Reed Exhibitions decided to prohibit AR15 style Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show. There is no word as to who may take Reed Exhibitions place in putting on the SHOT Show that is held every year.
The official NSSF statement from the blog is:
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, today announced that it has reached an agreement with Reed Exhibitions to terminate the agreement the parties had for the management of the SHOT Show. Accordingly, effective immediately, Reed Exhibitions will no longer be manager and producer of the SHOT Show.
Reed Exhibitions provided excellent service to NSSF and the customers of the SHOT Show for more than three decades, however, the company’s decision to restrict the sale of certain types of firearms this year at its consumer hunting and fishing show — an event unrelated to NSSF and the SHOT Show — was in conflict with NSSF’s mission to serve the shooting sports industry. As a result, both organizations decided it was in the best interest of the SHOT Show to end their relationship.
