The countdown has at last begun for SCI’s 46th Annual Hunters’ Convention with only days to go before we meet in Las Vegas! Call your friends and family to plan your four days at the Ultimate Sportsmen’s Market, January 31-February 4. Be sure to download our app to help make the most of your time visiting exhibitors on the show floor, view a list of auction times and see a list of seminars. For more information about the convention and details about evening entertainment, seminars and auction slots, visit www.showsci.org.
After a long day of bidding, learning new tips or visiting with old friends on the convention floor, relax and enjoy the evening banquets at the MGM Grand. We once again have a great lineup with comedians, keynote speakers and some wonderful country music. Get ready to laugh with Tim Allen and Terry Fator. Hear a passionate speech about our 2nd Amendment rights from NRA-ILA’s Executive Director Chris Cox, followed by a performance from fellow outdoor enthusiast Lucas Hoge. And, don’t forget to attend our Thursday evening Night of the Hunter Major Awards Reception. This festive night features an auction and an array of hors d’oeuvres, and honors our major hunting accomplishments of the past year.
The outdoor industry’s most informative and insightful experts will be on hand giving insightful seminars. Take time out for Fierce Fishes of the Amazon with Paul Reiss, Long Range Shooting tips from Aaron Davidson, Your First African Safari with Craig Boddington and a panel of leading hunt experts and Chris Batha’s outstanding wing-shooting seminar. This is just the tip of the iceberg. SCI’s seminars are truly one of the world’s best resources for the serious sportsman or woman who wants to improve his or her craft.
The anticipation is nearly over. More than 1,000 exhibitors covering more than eight football fields will be ready to meet you when the show floor opens. There is an energy like no other in the opening moments of the Annual Hunters’ Convention. It is a special time for our members and donors to meet under one roof in support of our shared missions of promoting wildlife conservation and protecting hunters’ rights worldwide.
I will see you in Las Vegas!–Scott Chapman, Vice President, Chairman Convention Committee
