157056955020926.jpgReturning sponsors plus a new high-level sponsor have signed on to make the annual winter RV show in Quartzsite one of the most popular consumer shows on the calendar.

The tiny desert hamlet of Quartzsite, Ariz., is turned into the center of attention when simultaneous public events draw big crowds during the fourth week in January.

“We have tens of thousands of RVers converge on Quartzsite for the gem and mineral shows, swap meets, flea markets and our RV show,” Kenny King says.

King is President and Co-Promoter of the annual Quartzsite Sports, Vacation and RV Show. This year, the line up of sponsors has grown to include Cummins Diesel as a platinum level sponsor.

Last year, estimated attendance was more than 100,000 people with 350 exhibits inside and around 70,000 square foot event structure.

Cummins will again exhibit its latest line of portable generators at the Quartzsite show, King says.

Returning as naming sponsor, Progressive Insurance for RVs will have “a major presence at the event.”

The list of major sponsors of the 2020 Quartzsite RV show includes Dometic, a gold sponsor beginning in 2019. Dometic will again operate an RV service bay on the show grounds.

King adds that there will be a dozen RV service bays at the event to offer immediate installation, warranty and repair services.

Dish Network is another new gold sponsor and will exhibit together with CM Wireless.

Finally, Family Motor Coach Association has signed on this year at a Quartzsite silver sponsor.

Returning Silver sponsors include Redlands Truck & RV Service, Plasticover and its RV dealer, RV Country.

The 37th Annual Quartzsite Sports, Vacation and RV Show is scheduled for Jan. 18-26, 2020.

The event takes place inside, and around the famous Big Tent, just off Interstate 10 at State Highway 95.
