The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) has released preliminary details about the 2013 Outdoor Hospitality Conference & Expo (OHCE) in Knoxville, Tenn. Nov. 4-8.

ARVC posted the following notice this week on its revamped website:

Outdoor hospitality is all about enjoying the great outdoors, so naturally, we’re very excited to have the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains as our backdrop for the 2013 arvc Outdoor Hospitality Conference & Expo (OHCE). It’s your chance to join hundreds of your fellow park owners and operators at the Knoxville Convention Center for the premier event of the RV park and campground industry.

OHCE offers you a choice of over 40 educational seminars, all of which are Outdoor Hospitality Education Program-approved and presented by nationally recognized speakers and leaders in the industry. New this year! We’ve expanded our educational content to give you even more learning opportunities. ALL educational seminars, from Tuesday through Friday, are now included in your full registration fee!

You’ll also have opportunities to participate in cracker barrel discussions, network with your peers and attend enjoyable social events. Plus, the Expo will provide you with the convenience of “one-stop shopping” with more than 100 exhibitors demonstrating the latest products and services that can assist you in your park operations. You won’t want to miss this information-packed event. You’ll return to your campground with a wealth of new ideas, insights and industry contacts.

All sessions will take place at the Knoxville Convention Center unless otherwise noted. The schedule is subject to change.
