FMCA RV Club will host its international convention and expo in Tucson, Arizona in March 2022 after cancelling the 2020 event due to the coronavirus pandemic.
FMCA, an international not-for-profit RV club, announced plans Thursday to host the 104th International Convention and RV Expo at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson, Arizona, March 23 through 26, 2022. The association was just a couple weeks away from arriving on site for its March 2020 event in Tucson when prohibitions on mass gatherings prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic forced a cancellation.
“We are excited to be able to reschedule this event and to follow through with our plans to gather in Tucson, Arizona,” FMCA National President Jon Walker said. “We were all disappointed that we had to put those plans on hold this year. Part of FMCA’s mission is bringing RVers together, and we are eager to get back to gathering as a group. To be able to meet in Tucson, albeit on a delayed schedule, is wonderful.”
FMCA Events Director Doug Uhlenbrock said the RV club’s staff worked hard to find a way to reschedule the event as near in the future as possible.
“We will have to wait a little longer to get together for a convention in Tucson, but we’re already anticipating the celebration we’ll have there,” Uhlenbrock said. “If this crisis taught us anything, it is to not take things for granted, including the opportunity to travel and to gather with friends and family. We’re happy that the Pima County Fairgrounds had open dates in March 2022 and could accommodate us. We’re looking forward to a fantastic event there.”
Association leaders and staff currently are preparing for two international conventions scheduled for 2021. First up will be FMCA’s 102nd International Convention and RV Expo, set to take place March 10 through 13 at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry, Georgia. The association also will make a return visit to the Cam-Plex Multi-Event Facilities in Gillette, Wyoming, July 7 through 10 for its 103rd convention. Registration for the Perry event will start this fall, and registration for the Gillette convention will kick off during winter 2020-21.
