FEGA Annual Convention, Exhibition and Seminars


Vegas Baby!

FEGA is changing its annual show venue to the Riviera Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.

This will be in conjunction with the Beinfeld Las Vegas Antique Arms show, inside the International Sporting Arms Show. As an added bonus the SHOT show will also be in town just before our show.

Dates for the public: Friday 23rd ~ Sunday 25th January 2015

Show Hours for Public and FEGA members:
Friday 23rd 9am to 5pm
Saturday 24th 9am to 5pm.
Sunday 25th 9am to 2pm

Entry fee to members and public:
One Day Pass $15
Three day $35
Honor Guest $90 (allows entry to show same time as exhibitors)

FEGA members in the past have always got into our show for free. This is now changed because Beinfeld Productions are in charge of the gate so FEGA members will have to pay to get into the show like everyone else. However, the cheaper hotel rates will more than offset this small cost.

Set-up for Exhibitors:
Thursday 22nd 10am ~ 6pm

Make sure you set up early. Other exhibitors and those with an Honor Guest Pass will be visiting your table. It will be a busy day!!!
