The 2023 NTP-Stag Expo Presented by Airxcel begins Monday. The event will be held at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado.
The Expo is NTP-Stag’s first at the Gaylord Rockies, 30 minutes from downtown Denver. The event will feature two days of manufacturer product showcases, educational seminars, exclusive promotions, special events and industry networking.
“Being our signature event, Expo Presented by Airxcel provides the first opportunity of the year where the RV business assembles for valuable interaction and networking while industry professionals can learn about exciting new products and industry advances,” NTP-Stag President Bill Rogers said. “The relaxed and casual location in Colorado provides a wonderful environment for many of the industry’s dealers, leading suppliers and manufacturers to connect and exchange beneficial insight.”
An attendee welcome reception begins at 6 p.m. Sunday and is sponsored by Lippert. The welcome reception is a new addition to the event, enabling attendees to meet NTP-Stag staff and plan their show agenda.
Monday’s Pro Kick Off breakfast will feature speaker Brian Billick, a former NFL head coach for nine seasons and champion of Super Bowl XXXV with the Baltimore Ravens. Tuesday’s keynote breakfast address will feature 12-year NFL veteran Joe Theismann. The keynote breakfast is sponsored by Carefree of Colorado.
“Brian Billick and Joe Theismann are successful men of character who have achieved tremendous results over the course of their impressive careers,” Rogers said. “We are pleased to present impactful discussions from these exemplary leaders and legendary Superbowl Champions.”
Theismann will be on the Expo show floor from 9-10 a.m. to meet and engage with attendees.
The Expo will feature a new product showcase highlighting manufacturer offerings. The Outdoor Recreation Exhibit, presented by Dometic, will incorporate vehicles and key category accessories, merchandising and planogram ideas to assist dealers in attracting customers in this category.
“We strive to identify opportunities for our partners and customers to expand their offerings and engage with the next generation of RVers,” NTP-Stag Vice President of Category Management and Marketing Larry Montante said. “This lifestyle is attracting a broad range of enthusiasts that encompasses such areas as van life and car camping along with a host of outdoor adventure pursuits such as biking, kayaking, boating, skiing, fishing and more. With our extensive portfolio of products and accessories readily available to dealers, the Expo Outdoor Recreation Exhibit will demonstrate how the RV industry is well positioned to address these needs and how to approach communicating and merchandising to successfully reach this audience.”
Expo will conclude Tuesday with an onsite closing reception.
“Dealers can expect fantastic savings on many popular and in-demand products in addition to informative manufacturer presentations and exhibits throughout the show floor,” Rogers said. “Most importantly, this is our opportunity to spend time catching up with our valued customers and suppliers, explore how we can continue to positively impact the RV industry together and have some fun in the process.”
