We have exciting news! SSAA SHOT Expo will go ahead in 2019 and is scheduled for October 19-20 at the Melbourne Showgrounds.
As a show of good faith, SSAA will honour the exhibitor deposits already paid for the Melbourne SHOT Expo to ensure you will not suffer financial penalty after recent events.
As you know, we were put into a difficult situation when the company who operated the Expo on our behalf (Exhibitions Group) went into voluntary liquidation.
Liquidators were appointed and are now working to recover the hundreds of thousands of dollars owed by Exhibitions Group.
SSAA has also appointed lawyers to protect the SSAA SHOT Expo against further damage and we advise you to perform due diligence if approached by organisers of start-up expos.
There is only one SSAA SHOT Expo and we can now continue its long and proud tradition of being Australia’s biggest and best shooting, hunting and outdoor trade show.
SSAA Victoria has secured the venue and the date and is negotiating with a well-known event organiser who has previous experience with SSAA SHOT Expo.
We expect that the Expo will continue to grow and that the situation with the former organiser will cause minimal disruption.
Again, we will honour the Melbourne SHOT Expo site deposits of those who can prove payment to Exhibitions Group (and many already have) regardless of the outcome of the liquidator’s action.
We look forward to working with you and will be in touch shortly with an updated prospectus.
