The 2011 SHOT show just concluded with record numbers of buyers and media in attendance and a staggering number of over 57,000 industry pros at Sands Expo Center for the four-day show. As always, the Gerber booth was bustling with excitement from the opening bell until show close with buyers, reps, media and brand enthusiasts filling the booth.
Highlights included lines around the booth for Pete Gerber's annual knife signing, a sold out Bear Grylls Compact Scout sale with proceeds benefitting the Boy Scouts of America, media previews galore and a double header for Gerber in the SHOT Daily Magazine.
Media in particular we're buzzing with anticipation of the Bear Grylls Survival Series launch and line previews revealed a few media favorites in the new Metolius Exchange-A-Blade knives and Hands Free Recon light, as well as the Fit and Crucial FAST multi-tools. All in all, a great way to set the stage for 2011 and we're looking forward to a very bright new year.
