RVIA has extended exhibit hall hours to accommodate a happy hour on March 12, the inaugural exhibition’s opening day at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City.

United States Warranty Corporation (USWC) will sponsor the happy hour, set from 5:30 to 7 p.m. As a result, RVIA says the RVX Industry Showcase will stay open longer, allowing dealers and retailers more time to peruse the industry’s latest products.

Attendees can enjoy domestic and craft kegs, as well as a s’mores station and snacks in the Hall 4 dining area and near the United States Warranty Corporation booth.

Cleveland-based USWC is one of the oldest providers and administrators of vehicle service contracts in the U.S. The company provides service contract plans for vehicles including towables and gas and diesel vehicles.
