The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) has joined forces with the Professional Paddlesports Association (PPA) to host a trade show in Las Vegas in November.
The event, called Insites Parks and Paddles, is the largest outdoor hospitality convention and trade show in the country, according to Linda Profaizer, president of ARVC, and Matthew Menashes, executive director of the PPA.
Insites will take place Nov. 12-15.
“We are pleased to be able to team with the paddlesports industry to host a show and convention of this scale and magnitude,” Profaizer said. “The tremendous growth of the outdoor hospitality industry means new products, new opportunities and new partnerships. Together, we can bring these exciting opportunities under one roof to the benefit of the entire industry.”
The terms of the agreement involving ARVC and PPA call for them to jointly host annual trade shows in 2003 and 2004, along with related educational events and social/networking gatherings and to closely coordinate membership-specific meetings.
“Insites has long been a cornerstone event of the outdoor hospitality industry and we are thrilled to be able to join forces with ARVC to make it even better,” Menashes said.
