The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) released the schedule for the 2022 Outdoor Hospitality Conference & Expo (OHCE).
OHCE will take place Nov. 7-10 in Orlando, Florida, and the theme for this year’s event is “Possibilities Start Here.”
The lineup includes industry experts and leaders, featuring keynotes, breakout sessions, panels and master classes.
OHCE’s Hosted Buyer Program will take center stage along with receptions at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Universal City Walk and a 1980s-themed poolside reception at the Rosen Centre.
You can view the full schedule of events, sessions and speakers here.
National ARVC kept registration prices the same for the third year in a row and changed the overall schedule. The Awards of Excellence dinner, which traditionally was on Thursday night, now is a Wednesday lunch. The change enables attendees to depart after the Expo closes Thursday afternoon, saving a hotel night.
OHCE agenda highlights include panels on electric vehicles’ future and their industry impact, featuring speakers from Wild Energy, Utility Supply Group, Electrical Works, NewBook, Rivian/Waypoint, Drive Electric USA and the Texas Electric Transportation Resource Alliance.
One panel will introduce ARVC’s new EV Toolkit, an interactive resource to help the outdoor hospitality industry navigate installation processes to attract EVs and E-RVs.
Other session topics include guest experience standards, the value of using OTAs, the 2023 economic outlook, employment legal issues, adaptive recreation opportunities, unique ways to increase revenue, answering insurance questions, expansion financing options and more.
OHCE will conduct more than 40 sessions, panels and networking opportunities at this year’s event, along with a two-day Expo featuring more than 170 exhibitors.
