FMCA, a Cincinnati-based international association for RV owners, is now accepting registrations for its 99th International Convention and RV Expo.
Scheduled for March 13-16, 2019, at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry, Georgia, the FMCA event packs in four days of RV education; daytime and nightly entertainment; shopping for RVs, related components, and accessories; and opportunities for fun and socializing with other RV enthusiasts.
“I’m super excited to get the ball rolling for Perry, our home away from home,” said Doug Uhlenbrock, director of events. “While registration may have just opened, we’re already deep into planning for what should be another outstanding show. I can’t wait to start talking about all of the new and exciting things we have in store for attendees who join us for FMCA’s 99th convention.”
A variety of registration options are available – ranging from a $10 single-day pass that provides admission only to the exhibits to a $225 full-access pass ($215 with cash or check payment discount). The full-access pass enables the attendee to bring their RV, stay at the fairgrounds, and enjoy all of the activities with others who share a passion for the RV lifestyle. Early-bird rates currently are in effect and represent a savings of $20 off the gate registration price. Electric hookups can be added for an additional fee.
