KOA Opts for 2 Coastal Jamborees
Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) has opted to hold two national conventions or “jamborees” this fall – one on each coast – for the convenience of its franchisees.
After a one-year experiment holding its annual convention in concert with the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) InSites Convention, KOA decided to return to its own event but at two different sites.
Jamboree dates are Nov. 8-10 at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Nov. 18-20 at the Sheraton Suites Fairplex in Pomona, Calif. The jamborees were scheduled around ARVC’s InSites Convention, which is scheduled for Nov. 12-15 in Nashville, Tenn.
The jamborees will mirror each other, explained Mike Gast, vice president of communications for KOA. Both jamborees will be equally staffed by KOA corporate managers and feature similar seminars and vendor shows.
KOA picked the two coastal sites to cut down on travel expenses for its franchisees and make it easier for them to attend, Gast explained.
