HIT SHOW 2017 TO FOCUS ON BUSINESS AND EXPERIENCE ACTIVITIES
HIT SHOW 2017, the international
trade show for the hunting, target sports and individual protection sectors,
looks set to be an edition packed
full of exciting new features.
The event – which will take place in the Vicenza exhibition district between 11 and 13 February 2017 – is a
point of reference for lovers of these
fields and represents a business
platform for the civilian and sports arms sectors, which occupy a position
of particular strategic importance in terms of internationalisation.
The group has thus inherited the skills, know-how and
respected industry standing of Fiera
di Vicenza in the hunting, target sports and individual protection sectors, which
it built up first with HUNTING SHOW and later with HIT SHOW. The show is now in its third edition, with IEG teaming up with ANPAM (Italian National Association of
Manufacturers of Arms and Ammunition) to organise the event in collaboration
with ASSOARMIERI and CONARMI.
SHOW 2017 will feature the leading
international brands, distributors and top Italian companies in arms and
munitions for civilian and sports use, hunting, individual protection equipment
and accessories, technical clothing, eyewear, target sports products and the
outdoor industry, as well as a section on dogs. In order to create more business
opportunities between companies and operators and to further boost the arms
of civilian and sports use sector, which is one of Italy’s most successful
industries, IEG will be organising an intense buyer incoming activity.
The event will be divided into four goods
areas. HUNTING will provide hunting lovers with a chance to hone
their technical knowledge and perfect best practices in arms and munitions
handling, as well as keeping up to date with the latest products on the market.
A new section dedicated to rifles will be running within this
