Challenge: SHOT Show needed to uplevel attendee networking experience 

In the crowded landscape of trade shows, standing out and providing value to both attendees and organizers is paramount.

SHOT Show is already a leading event in the firearms, hunting, and outdoor industry. And yet, they aimed to leap beyond daytime engagement, and give their attendees more fun and opportunities to connect with each other. 

We turned the spotlight onto the Las Vegas nightlife to offer attendees unforgettable experiences while opening up new revenue streams for SHOT Show.

Solution: Premier parties gave attendees more networking to look forward to

Jampack and SHOT Show teamed up to create something special for 2024 - the SHOT Show After Dark program, which included 7 new evening events on the show agenda. 

Held at the Venetian Expo and Caesars Forum, we harnessed the allure of Las Vegas to transform SHOT Show’s evening programming, and created a high-impact, revenue-generating program of events. 

These weren’t your typical corporate events–we're talking exclusive access to the most electric spots on the Strip: 

SHOT Show's evening networking schedule included 3 networking mixers at premier lounges in Vegas

This program captivated attendees and also established a new revenue stream for SHOT Show.

Each networking event and happy hour was tailored specifically for SHOT Show’s brand. Each attendee experienced Vegas’ legendary locales for networking and camaraderie, crafting nights as impactful as the days. 

Highlights included:

  • Welcome Night at Drai’s Nightclub: The epic start of the week.
  • Mid-week Mixer at Voltaire: Unwinding in style.
  • Closing Party at Beer Park: Celebrating achievements with a view of the Bellagio fountains.

Beyond these key events, exclusive "Guest List" access to top nightclubs allowed attendees to top off the night.

Results: Elevated engagement and 188% increase in new revenue YoY
