SHOT SHOW 2016 – An International Buyer Program-Supported Event
Meet with Pre-Screened International Buyers and Global Industry Specialists

In partnership with the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), we at the U.S. Department of Commerce are excited to offer U.S. exhibitors at the 2016 Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Tradeshow and Conference services to assist in entering or increasing their presence in international markets!

There are two primary value-added services through the International Buyer Program (IBP) at SHOT Show 2016, and each requires its own registration. Please be sure to register for both programs!

B2B Matchmaking Program
Let us help you, the U.S. supplier, connect with international buyers before, during, and after the show, with our exclusive business-to-business matchmaking program. Register for this service and your company profile will be shared with pre-screened international buyers attending the 2016 SHOT Show.
