Otis Technology Newest Bronze Sponsor of 2016 SHOT Show University


We’re very excited to announce that Otis Technology has joined the roster of 2016 SHOT Show University sponsors at the Bronze support level. A long-time supporter of many NSSF efforts, it is gratifying to see a company so involved in the day to day business of our retailers contribute to the education we provide that helps them stay compliant, expand their operations and increase their profits.

“We’ve supported the efforts of NSSF in many ways over the past three decades, and we’re especially pleased to have the opportunity to participate in this educational seminar series for our trusted retail partners,” said Leonard Puzzuoli, Otis Technology CEO.  “This is a valuable, tangible way the NSSF helps businesses in our industry thrive, and we’re proud to contribute to that effort.”

New York-based Otis Technology is a manufacturer of premium firearms cleaning supplies and accessories. The company was founded in 1985 by Doreen Garrett, who developed a compact, portable gun cleaning kit that she originally called the “Whole Kit and Caboodle.” The name stuck and became a registered trademark.

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.
