THE SHOW INFORMATION
LISTED BELOW IS "NOT VERIFIED!" AND HAS NOT BEEN

WE POSTED IT, SHOWS BELOW MAY HAVE BEEN CANCELLED

Please tell them
IowaGunShows.net is your preferred source for
Iowa Gun Show listings.
Although we have tried to email all gun show promoters
in the past, some have still not taken advantage of our
FREE gun show listings, and don't always notify us of
their show changes. Please ask them to work with us
closer in the future.
PLEASE TELL THEM YOU SAW IT AT "www.IowaShows.net"
NOT VERIFIED is the marking we place when we are afraid
a promoter may cancel their show without notice to us -
and we would rather list it as NOT VERIFIED than have
you drive to a show that isn't taking place.
In an attempt to list as
many gun shows as possible, we sometimes obtain show
information from sources other than the promoter, we
often add those shows but list them as NOT VERIFIED
until we can get the promoter to visit our site and
confirm we have their show information listed correctly.
When we email promoters asking them to let us know if
their shows are listed correctly - and they won't take
the time to do that - we would rather leave those
listings as NOT VERIFIED than risk the public driving to
a show that has been CANCELLED WITHOUT NOTICE to us or
our website visitors.
PROMOTER CANCELS SHOWS WITHOUT NOTIFYING US -
WE TRY TO LIST THEIR THEIR UPCOMING SHOWS AS "NOT VERIFIED"
UNTIL WE HAVE CONFIDENCE THEY WILL KEEP US NOTIFIED OF
FUTURE SHOW CANCELLATIONS OR CHANGES.
While shows marked as NOT VERIFIED may
take place, we don't want to list them as verified
because we are not confident that the promoter of that
show will notify us if the show is rescheduled or
cancelled - because they have not notified us of
previously cancelled or rescheduled shows, have not
taken time to let us know their shows are listed
correctly here when we have periodically emailed to ask,
or we have not been able to create a reliable working /
communicating relationship with them.
remember, we list basic show information for FREE, we
only need you to let us know our listings are correct
and that you will communicate with us about your shows
as needed in the future - when you don't take the time
to do that, we become concerned that you will cancel
shows and not let us know - and we would rather list
your show as NOT VERIFIED than have one of our site
visitors drive to your show and find out it was
cancelled and no one told us. We want to become partners
with promoters and work together to try to make sure our
website visitors have the most accurate and current
listing of gun shows in their area.
costs nothing for a promoter to have their shows
VERIFIED - they simply need to email us and be willing
to work with us so we can keep you up-to-date on their
show changes as soon as possible.
We gather information from many sources in an attempt to
provide you with listings of all upcoming gun shows - conveniently
here at one place. Unfortunately, sometimes shows are cancelled or changed
and the show promoter does not tell us about this. We encourage all show
promoters to visit this website and make sure their shows are listed
correctly - but some promoters don't take the time to do that. If you know a
gun show promoter, please encourage them to participate in our VERIFIED GUN
promoters who participate in our VERIFIED GUN SHOW! program work closely
with us to make sure the information listed about their shows here is
correct, and they agree to notify us immediately with any show changes or

If you have ever driven
to a gun show - only to find out the show has been
cancelled, rescheduled, or moved to another location - then you
know why we created the VERIFIED GUN SHOW! program. Unfortunately billboard
advertisements, newspaper ads and radio commercials often keep
running even after a gun show has been cancelled or rescheduled.
Many online websites also continue to list shows that have been
rescheduled or cancelled. The VERIFIED GUN SHOW! program is different.
First, gun show organizers and promoters who participate in
the VERIFIED GUN SHOW! program check our listings of their
shows to make sure the information given is accurate on our
websites (many other websites don't do this). Secondly, and
more important - VERIFIED GUN SHOW! participants are contacted by us just
prior to their actual event taking place so that we can verify
from them that the show is being setup and doors will open as
advertised with us.
Gun show attendees are encouraged to visit our site regularly to
watch for shows scheduled for their area, and also check the site
again the day before or day of the show to make sure the show is
still taking place as planned. This saves gun show attendees time
and gas, and allows you to make plans and attend shows with more
confidence. VERIFIED GUN SHOW! websites are also mobile-friendly,
perfect for checking while on the go! We also hope you will tell
us know how to serve you, the gun buying public better. Your
feedback, comments, and suggestions matter! Please scroll down to
see a list of states we are currently serving, and watch for more
states to be added in the future.

what it is like to setup at a poorly advertised show and later
find out the public was confused by advertising or afraid the
show might have been cancelled so decided to not show up at all.
Dealers need customers to sell to, and our goal is to help with
that. Support promoters who participate in our
VERIFIED GUN SHOW! program - know they are trying to
take extra steps to make sure their shows are advertised
accurately and helping the public feel more confident about
showing up. It is a team effort, and we hope you will let us know
how we can serve you and your customers

We may be
new to your state, but we are not new to the gun show industry.
We began our first state-specific gun show website back in 2008
and it became a resource the public used to keep up with shows in
that state, dealers used as a planner to decide which shows to
setup at, and promoters used it as a way to know what other
promoter's dates were so they could better plan future shows.
Our VERIFIED GUN SHOW! program offers a way to promote your
shows while also trying to better serve the needs of your
attendees and vendors.

Gun show dealers and exhibitors -
this website, along with our other state specific websites, can help you decide which shows you will
participate in during the year. Our goal is to provide and
maintain an accurate, up-to-date listing of gun shows throughout
each state. This is also a valuable tool for the public to
use in deciding which gun shows to attend - their time is
important and they want to attend a gun show with confidence - we
help with that. If you are aware of a gun show promoter
who does not have their shows VERIFIED through the VERIFIED GUN SHOW! program at - please ask them to. If a promoter says
they are doing saturation advertising and they don't participate in our program
- they are not really doing saturation advertising and they are not trying to
take care of their client's needs - the attending public and gun show exhibitors
who come to our website looking for reassurance that a show is taking place.
