2008 Sport Show Update
The Sport shows are under way here’s what I know
Minnesota's Sportsmen's Boat, Camping & Vacation Show RiverCentre. St. Paul 38th Annual January 9-13, 2008
St Paul 5 day show attendance was very low with the exception on Saturday it picked back up only 750 OTCTA Vacation Guides were given out this year down a few hundred from years past. I was told that a lot of people didn’t want to carry the handouts and jotted down the web site address to check out when they got home.
We had 26 OTCTA members that sent handouts to the show. If you didn’t you still can make the next shows get them to me in time.
River City Hunting & Fishing Expo, Mid America center, Council Bluffs IA January 18-20, 2008 (put on by the local Pheasants Forever chapter)
Council Bluffs 3 day show, this was the first year that OTCTA went to this show and attendance was great every day. We are the only Tourism Association and/or Group at the show over 900 OTCTA Vacation Guides were handed out.
We had 28 OTCTA members send handouts to the show. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get your business in front of potential customers at the next show.
The Next show is St. Cloud Sportsmen's Show St. Cloud Civic Center 20th Annual February 15-17, 2008
