NTP-Stag President Bill Rogers said Las Vegas provided an outstanding venue to bring industry members together for its 2022 Expo, presented by Airxcel.
The two-day live event was held at the Caesars Forum Convention Center. The show concluded with a reception, sponsored by Dometic, at Allegiant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders.
“Bringing activities to a close on the Allegiant Stadium field,” Rogers said, “with customers enjoying the stadium atmosphere while kicking field goals and catching touchdown passes, really put the exclamation point on the event.”
One day of the live show was dedicated to RV University education sessions and informational seminars from vendors, in addition to Pro speaker presentations by Corey Perlman, nationally renowned social media expert, as well as Kelly McDonald, marketing and customer experience pro, prior to previewing the Expo show floor.
“We saw tremendous attendance throughout the educational and informational presentations, and once the show floor doors opened, the energy and enthusiasm on the show floor was great,” Rogers said. “It was a pleasure for us to be able to deliver the complete show experience while having the opportunity to engage with so many of our customers in person.”
The virtual Expo, hosted through NTP-STAG’s online portal, provided attendees weeklong access to a similar slate of sales and promotions, Power Hour deals and buying opportunities as the live event. Virtual attendees could view presentations from many speakers, as well as Las Vegas product seminars. Presentations from Perlman, McDonald and a keynote address by best-selling author Joey Coleman were available.
“The virtual Expo has become a very helpful addition in how we present the Expo,” Rogers said. “This extension of the in-person show delivers a unique experience with an expanded audience that allows us, and our suppliers, to continue to deliver the key elements of the program well beyond the initial live show.”
Rogers extended his appreciation to everyone who participated.
“We are appreciative of our supplier partners who collaborated with us to present the show,” Rogers said, “and we are grateful to all of our customers who took the time to partake in Expo 2022.”
