    Show Hours!... The Results Are In
    Earlier this year, we sent you a survey on a proposed adjustment to the GAOS show hours. The results were mixed on whether to shorten the week day hours or keep the hours unchanged. We’ve decided to keep the Show hours the same as they have been in previous years and make a major push to sell more discounted late afternoon tickets to help put more people in front of you during the final hours each day. We’ll revisit this issue after the show.

    Scam Warning!
    HOUSING SERVICE SCAM
    Exhibitors have reported calls from companies claiming to be the housing service for GAOS.
    Please beware! If you provide your credit card information to any of these unauthorized vendors, your card may be charged but you may not have a reservation when you arrive in Harrisburg, PA.
    The NRA is NOT utilizing the services of any housing or reservations vendor for the Great American Outdoor Show. Click here for a list of our GAOS partner hotels.
    FRAUDULENT ATTENDEE LISTS
    Please be beware of companies who contact you offering to sell event attendee lists. They DO NOT have these lists nor can they make these lists available. Our attendee database is confidential and is not sold or made available to anyone.
    Should you receive unsolicited marketing from a company offering to sell these lists, do not respond. The NRA is in no way associated with these companies.
