Exhibitor attendance numbers at the British Shooting Show (17-19 February 2023) are, yet again, up on previous years.
“It’s going to be a good Christmas for many of our visitors if our ticket sales are anything to go by, opening those envelopes on Christmas morning, receiving your British Shooting Show tickets,” says organiser John Allison.
The British Shooting Show enters its 15th show year and is recognised throughout the industry as the UK’s largest ‘must visit’ industry event. As the aims of consumer shows and trade shows merge, the British Shooting Show is able to bridge the two.
It started as one shooter’s dream in 2008. An event purely for shooters, covering all aspects and disciplines, the Great British Shooting Show began at Newark showground. Now at the NEC, Birmingham, the location offers direct motorway and rail access and, for international visitors, direct flights to the event centre from around the world.
“The ethos of the British Shooting Show is simple,” says Allison. “We service the gun trade. Staying focused enables our platform to deliver a massive continued and dedicated visitor base, while the manufacturers strive to achieve the finest products to serve our ever-demanding public visitor and trade business alike, the quality product ranges from clothing, optics, shotguns, rifles, airguns, night vision, game shoots, luxury holidays, competition shoots and much, much more. The British Shooting Show remains the UK‘s undisputed finest platform to promote and educate retail and public alike.”
