Calif. RV, Boating Shows Decide to Combine
The popular Northern California RV and boat shows, usually held on consecutive weeks in January at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, have been combined and rescheduled for May 15-24.
The Pleasanton Weekly reorted that Michael Nohr, founder and CEO of Good Times Promotions, said the Northern California Marine Association (NCMA) will join forces with the Manufactures RV Show to host the new California Sports, Boat & RV Show at the Fairgrounds.
“This year’s combined show will be the biggest event of its kind on the West Coast,” he said, adding that by combining the two shows “the result is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream that also saves them time and money.”
Instead of driving from dealership to dealership comparing options and burning gas, Nohr said the new show will bring everything under one roof in one of the longest tents in the world.
“Even better, instead of attending two separate shows and paying two separate admission fees, our guests will get both for one low ticket price,” he explained. “Despite a slow economy and inconsistent gas prices, RV’s still represent the cheapest vacation.”
Added Shawn Nohr, show manager of GTP: “Recognizing the budget challenges our attendees face, we wanted to offer some relief as well, so we’ve combined shows. As a result, we will have more RV’s and boats in one place than ever before. I am confident attendees will be pleased with the ability to experience and compare all of their options in one place at one time with one ticket price.”
