Earlier this week, we told you
that SHOT Show 2022 was a definite “go” -and broke the news that SIG Sauer had notified the National Shooting Sports Foundation that ongoing Covid-19 concerns would prevent their participation. Late last night, we learned that the glaring space formerly occupied by SIG (SHOT’s largest footprint at 70x200) would not be empty. Under the SHOT Show/NSSF point allocation system, the option for that now-available space would fall to the highest priority point holder. The space was offered, and the offer was accepted. When SHOT 2022 opens its doors, the new tenant of that very-significant space will be Vista Outdoor
. The realignment of space due to the SIG Sauer decision may impact other exhibitors as well. Or, we’re told, the NSSF may “repurpose” the space. It’s a developing story, and as always, we’ll keep you posted.
