Over 1,400 outdoor hospitality industry suppliers were invited to join Outdoor Hospitality Expo producers Art Lieberman and Deanne Bower for a preview of the upcoming Virtual Outdoor Hospitality Expo II convention.

This advance preview is scheduled for 2 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Aug. 23, as excitement builds for the Nov. 10-11 online event, according to a news release.

The preview will be conducted via a webinar and invitations were sent to suppliers of goods and services to campgrounds, marinas, golf and ski resorts, paddleboat and canoeing resorts and even dude ranches. The invitation was extended to sponsors and exhibitors who have already committed to the convention. Members of the Expo’s Advisory Board will also be in attendance. The “tour” of the virtual facility will be conducted by Elizabeth Davenport and other personnel of VCopious, the software company whom the producers have engaged for this year’s event.

Interested outdoor hospitality industry product/service suppliers that have not yet received an invitation to attend the pre-show sneak peek may contact Lieberman or Bower at (877) 901-EXPO (3976) or

“How unique is this?” asks producer Art Lieberman. “I have produced nearly a dozen physical conventions and have never been able to actually demonstrate what the show would look like 2 1/2 months before the actual event”

Co-producer Deanne Bower is equally enthusiastic about the preview. “We’ll be able to explain how the booths will be set up in advance by VCopious through actual participant booths. We’ll also be sharing information regarding the unique reporting facilities only available at an event which takes place on the Internet. Show exhibitors will be able to view which exhibits or conferences attendees visited, their length of stay and what materials they placed in their briefcases for later viewing after leaving the Expo.”

The Expo, slated to run from 12 noon to 6 p.m. on Nov. 10 and 11 and available in the “on-demand” status for 60 additional days, also announced that several first-time Silver Sponsors have decided to participate this year, among them Allied Specialty Insurance, Chempace, LCN Outdoors, Solar LED Innovation and

As previously announced, David Gorin & Associates and Best Parks In America are the Expo’s first Platinum Sponsors. New exhibitors are Bag-O-Loots LLC and Manning and Novick. Two major announcements about sponsors are being withheld until they can be finalized, but both promise to bring excitement to the Virtual Convention.

Deb Kohls of Leisure Interactive, heading up the education portion of the Expo, is once again assembling a cast of interesting and varied speakers for the convention’s webinars. Last year’s keynote speaker, Derrick Crandall, drew nearly 250 attendees at his presentation.
