Media Advisory: Interactive U.S. Gun Laws & Event Venues Map Available


Plan Your Meetings @ Meeting Professionals International (MPI) is pleased to offer a free, interactive U.S. map showing state-by-state gun laws as they relate to meeting and event venues.

The Gun Laws & Event Venues map was created as a simple starting point for planners looking into the matter of firearms possession at their meetings and events—a follow-up to a series of gun-related articles released over the past six months, which was designed to educate meeting and event practitioners on myriad factors associated with firearms, such as safety, security, and the attendee experience.

Select a state and you’ll immediately see the general status of handgun and long gun possession in the state, including whether or not permits are required. You’ll also get information related to exemptions in the law that apply specifically to potential meeting and event venues.

For 20+ years, the MEET family of products have provided regional and national resources that have kept corporate, association, medical, education, independent, and religious meeting and event planners informed about relevant vendors, industry news, tech innovations, and resources that impact and influence how and where they plan their group business.
