HIT 2016: the event everyone in the sector has been waiting for is back

The hunting season is about to close, but there is no room for nostalgia or wistfulness as enthusiasm builds over the next few weeks in anticipation of meeting faces both old and new, finding out the latest news and discovering the latest innovations with which we can once more live our passion for the sport. The Vicenza Trade Fair is ready to play host to another edition of the HIT SHOW from 13 to 15 February 2016, an event organised in partnership with ANPAM (the National Association of Italian Arms and Ammunitions Manufacturers) and in collaboration with the armoury associations ASSOARMIERI and CONARMI. The HIT Show is, in fact, much more than just a trade fair; it is a great chance to share ideas and get up-to-date on the latest news, and it is not just for us hunters.

The fair offers something for everyone, where you will find people who love hunting, sports and civilian arms, dogs and the great outdoors. You can find information on the correct use of arms and ammunition, as well as the latest news from the world of hunting, thanks to the participation of top international brands and the very best of Made in Italy. The show is not just for Italians though and has become a point of reference on the European market, as the growing number of exhibitors from outside Italy goes to show. 

There are many absolutely unmissable highlights and events, from the dog show to cultural meetings and shooting practice. The return of the HIT Dog Show is highly anticipated, as it is one of the most prestigious dog shows around. 

The event, organised in collaboration with the Vicenza Dog Club, will be showing more than 1,000 hunting and pet dogs. After the great success last year, this year's fourth edition of the HIT Show Trophy is not to be missed, with various Veneto shooting ranges competing. 

The Trophy is organised by the Vicenza Trade Fair in collaboration with FITAV (the Italian Wing Shot Federation). There will be a variety of engaging events in the spacious exhibition area divided into three major themes: Hunting, Individual Protection and Target Sports where enthusiasts and visitors can discover all the latest trends in terms of arms, ammunition, sports equipment and accessories.
