American Idol fan favorite Celena Rae will join “Ultra Marathon Man” Dean Karnazes and top PBA Tour bowler Walter Ray Williams at RVIA’s Outlook 2007: Market Expansion Showcase, which ushers in the 44th Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., on Nov. 28.
Rae emerged on the national music scene when she was crowned the winner on Dick Clark’s Your Big Break. She went on to rate as one of the top 10 female finalists in the show’s fourth season. Now the voice of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, Celena will deliver a special performance for Outlook 2007 guests.
Special guest speaker Karnazes is an internationally recognized athlete and best-selling author who grabbed headlines this month when he completed 50 marathons in 50 days. Karnazes “road-schooled” his kids in his RV during his tour as part of his campaign to help Americans get healthy.
Walter Ray Williams, whose 42 titles make him the PBA Tour’s all-time titlist, and his family are long-time fans of RVing and frequently travel to tour events via their RV. He will share his thoughts on RVing with attendees.
Rae, Williams and Karnazes join Lassie star Jon Provost, NBC Today travel guru Peter Greenberg and poker sensation Mark Hanna as part of the event’s all-star lineup.
“All three of our newly announced guests will add to the excitement of the Outlook 2007 pep rally,” said RVIA Vice President of Public Relations and Advertising Gary LaBella. “We look forward to having them join us at this terrific event.”
Outlook 2007: Market Expansion Showcase, taking place in the South Wing Ballroom at the Kentucky Exposition Center, begins at 6:15 a.m. with a sit-down breakfast. Admission to the event is free for show attendees. Space is limited with seating offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
