RVers across the U.S. and Canada will be descending on the 37th Sports, Vacation & RV show in Quartzsite in Arizona on Jan. 18-26. According to a press release, the annual event capitalizes on the tens of thousands of RVs that converge on Quartzsite for the gem and mineral shows, swap meets and flea markets that take place each winter.
Attendance for the 2019 show was estimated at well over 100,000 with over 350 exhibits inside and around the show’s 70,000-square-foot, and fully carpeted “Big Tent.” Co-promoter Kenny King noted, “If you’re looking for anything related to RVs, camping and travel, you can usually find it at the Sports, Vacation & RV show in Quartzsite.” King added that here will be hundreds of new and used RVs on display and for sale, and over a dozen service bays will be offering immediate installation, repairs and warranty service.
In 2019, there were numerous tourism related exhibits from the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Europe as well as representatives from dozens of the nation’s finest RV resorts and campgrounds. In addition many “workamper” recruiters from businesses, resorts and private campgrounds were in attendance. King related, “The number and diversity of exhibits that you’ll find at the Quartzsite RV Show will not be found at any other show of this type in the United States.”
For 2020, several major players in the RV Industry have come aboard as sponsors for the event. Co-promoter Kimmy King noted that Progressive RV Insurance, who stepped up as the “Naming Sponsor” several years ago, would continue to have a major presence at the 2020 event. Cummins Diesel, which has participated as an exhibitor at the show since 2015, is a new “Platinum Sponsor” and will be introducing a new line of portable generators during the 2020 show.
In addition, longtime exhibitor Dometic has added a Service Bay in the service and repair area of the show grounds and Dish Network is one the newest “Gold Sponsors” in support of its major trade show retailer CM Wireless. King also reported that FMCA had recently stepped up as one of the “Silver Sponsors” along with returning sponsors Redlands Truck & RV Service, Plasticover and the show’s exclusive RV dealer RV Country.
