image006The Texas Recreational Vehicle Association (TRVA) will be marking its 40th anniversary during this year’s convention, slated to run Aug. 15-18 at the the La Cantera Hill Country Resort in San Antonio.

“We are very proud to be celebrating 40 years of serving the RV industry of Texas and we look forward to 40 more years of growing and expanding our services to our members,” said Mary Claire Campos, director of special events for TRVA. “It is going to be a busy three days with lots of continuing education and networking events for our dealers, parks, service and supplier members.”

TRVA Executive Director Phil Elam noted, “More than half of our convention sponsorships have already been taken, but we have opportunities still available. TRVA sponsors get to showcase their products at the Saturday Night Tradeshow and Reception, which is always a well-attended event. But we also have social events, such as our Casino Party and Golf Tournament. This is an important event and we encourage anyone who wants to get out and meet most of the top RV dealers in the state of Texas to attend.”
