Retailer Education Seminars at 2018 SHOT Show

By John McNamara, NSSF Senior Director, Retailer Services

As the Senior Director of Retailer Services for NSSF, my team and I spend months curating the topics for SHOT Week’s Retailer Seminars, and then recruiting top-level speakers who can pass on their subject-matter expertise to our retailers and range owners. This educational forum is always a sell-out with many of the seminars at standing-room only, and has overwhelmingly positive reviews post-show. That makes each year hard to improve one — but we think we did just that with the 2018 lineup.

2018 Retailer Seminar Lineup

There’s more opportunities to learn at SHOT Show than we can possibly offer in a single day. The solution is our lineup of Retailer Seminars taking place throughout Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of SHOT Show:

  • Tuesday, January 23
  • Wednesday, January 24
  • Thursday, January 25
    • Hiring the Productive and Legal Way — 9:00-10:00 a.m. Presented by human resources consultant Wendy Christie and staff management expert Thomas “Mack” Brennan.
    • Understanding the Current Customer Base via NSSF Research — 10:30-11:30 a.m. Presented by Jim Curcuruto, NSSF Director, Research & Market Development.
    • Operation Secure Store — 1:00-2:00 p.m. Presented by NSSF Security Consultant Team Member Bill Napier and Chief of ATF Special Operations Division Thomas Chittum.
    • Integrated Operations and Compliance in the Small to Mid-Size Manufacturing Sector — 2:30-3:30 p.m. Presented by Orchid Advisors CEO Jon Rydberg and Philip Milks, Esq.

We encourage you to visit, click in the “Education” heading at the top of the page, and peruse the complete session details and speaker biographies for our Retailer Seminars. When you’ve completed registration to attend the show, just log in to your account at and add the courses you need to your shopping cart. Many sessions are near sell-out now, so it’s important to make your reservations now. We’re looking forward to seeing you in Las Vegas!
