At Nature’s Design Taxidermy, we’re very excited for the upcoming Safari Club International convention in Reno! It’s just around the corner now, running from January 9 to 12 at the Reno Sparks Convention Center.
Every single year, this event is absolute heaven for any hunting enthusiast. If you’ve ever attended the event before, you know how much of a blast it is. If you haven’t, you can be sure that anyone who’s experienced it will urge you to go if you have the opportunity to do so. It is the Ultimate Sportsmen’s Market™ for a reason, after all!
Last year’s event brought in more than 18,000 attendees, and it’s not hard to see why. The convention has everything a hunter could possibly want in such a gathering, all spread out over a massive 452,000 square feet of exhibit space. Hunters from six continents all gather together under one roof, and members flock to meet up with old friends from all over the globe, while also booking hunting excursions and shopping for the latest guns and hunting equipment. Plus, there are hundreds of noteworthy names from the outdoor sports and shooting industries who come to the convention to assist hunters, provide them with more information and sell their products!
Why come to the event?
If this description hasn’t intrigued you already, we’re happy to give you some more reasons why you should make it a point to get out to this year’s SCI Las Vegas convention. Here are just a few:
- Education: There are dozens of informative and educational sessions and seminars that are specifically designed to teach you brand new hunting techniques or help you shore up old ones that have maybe gotten a little rusty. You’ll be able to learn new, creative ways to prepare wild game, get practical lessons in cleaning and maintaining your gear and equipment, and just about anything else that you could possibly need to know as a hunter.
- Sales: Like we said, some of the biggest names in the hunting and outdoor sports markets all come here and gather together under a single roof. Whether you’re looking for a new gun, new outdoor equipment, a connection with a new taxidermist or an excuse to book a professionally guided hunting excursion, you can find it all right here at the SCI Las Vegas convention.
- Fun: Once the exhibit halls shut down for the day, that doesn’t mean the fun is over. Every night, members gather to celebrate and enjoy outstanding speakers and entertainment. There are evening auctions with rare and high-quality guns, once-in-a-lifetime hunts, amazing artwork and so much more, with all purchases helping to ensure conservation efforts around the globe and preservation of our hunting heritage. Plus, the event is in Las Vegas—if you can’t find something fun to do while you’re at the conference, you’re not trying hard enough!
We sure hope you’ll come out to this year’s SCI convention in Reno, and stop by and pay us a visit while you’re there! Contact us today to learn more.
