Celerant Returns as Gold Sponsor of
2016 SHOT Show University

NEWTOWN, Conn.—The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that Celerant Technology Corp. will be returning as a sponsor of its annual SHOT Show University at the Gold level. An NSSF affinity member benefit partner, the Staten Island, New York-based Celerant is a leading provider of real-time point-of-sale and retail management software systems.

“We are very pleased that Celerant will be returning as a sponsor of the 2016 SHOT Show University,” said Patrick Shay, NSSF Director, Retail Development. “Last year’s University attendees greatly appreciated its partnership with us and the opportunity it provided to learn about tools that can improve efficiencies in their stores. With technology constantly changing, we expect an even better networking opportunity at this year’s event.”

“For nearly 10 years we have partnered with the National Shooting Sports Foundation and are honored to again participate in the SHOT Show University in 2016,” stated Michele Salerno, Director of Sales/Marketing, Assistant Vice President, for Celerant Technology Corp. “This event is a great opportunity to help educate and empower dealers, and we are excited to again be a part of it.”

SHOT Show University is NSSF’s annual education seminar for retailers. The 2016 event will take place January 18, the day before the show opens. Four educational tracks are designed to allow retailers from startups to veteran the opportunity to engage with a host of well-regarded business experts speaking on laws and regulations affecting their businesses, opportunities for growth and the latest in technology.

Registration for the 2016 SHOT Show and SHOT Show University are now open. Following last year’s success with ticket restructuring, once again NSSF will offer its Premium Retail members one complimentary ticket to SHOT Show University. Additional tickets and tickets for any other NSSF member level are $250. Non-NSSF members are welcome to attend, with a ticket price of $500. This event is always a sell-out, so retailers are urged to complete their registration for the show and SHOT Show University as soon as possible.
