Idaho Commerce to Participate in SHOT Show Along with 36

 Idaho Rec Tech Companies

Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show will take place in Las Vegas, NV on January 20-23, 2015.


BOISE, Idaho—Friday, January 9, 2015— Idaho Commerce will be sending a team to Las Vegas, Nevada for the annual Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show and Conference on January 20-23, 2015.  The Commerce team will participate in this trade show along with 36 Idaho companies that specialize in manufacturing, producing and/or distributing outdoor recreational technologies (rec tech).

The SHOT Show and Conference is the largest annual trade show for professionals involved in the outdoor industry, and is the world’s premier exposition of combined hunting, shooting sports, firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, military, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics and related products and services.  The SHOT Show attracts buyers from all 50 states and more than 100 countries.  The Idaho Commerce booth is a partnership with six economic development professionals from across the state, along with the Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association whose goal is to establish new relationships and create new opportunities for Idaho business and tourism. 

Idaho is rich in outdoor opportunity and has become an attractive location for outdoor recreation companies. Representatives from the following organizations have partnered with Idaho Commerce to support their local businesses and share the advantages their communities offer to relocating or expanding companies:

  • Bannock Development Corporation              

  •  Lemhi County

  • Grow Idaho Falls

  • Snake River Economic Development Association

  • Valley Vision

  • City of Mountain Home

Idaho Commerce and Tactical Export Strategies have also coordinated contributions from Idaho firearm companies to create a firearm manufactured entirely from Idaho components. With Idaho’s strength in firearm and ammunition manufacturing, 16 companies have combined to create a completely original “Idaho Firearm,” and the final product of this collaboration will be displayed at the 2015 SHOT Show.
