Dates posted according to the website is July 18-22 this year. However, Part 2 of the event is still to be announced. Upon checking the website of SM Megatrade Hall Events, the 21st Defense and Sporting Arms Show is not yet posted. I tried to verify the information through phone and I was told that July 18-22 is still a tentative date for the event, but they are now in the process of “finalizing” according to the operator who answered my call.
