Booth Sales Now Open for 2015 RMEF Hunter & Outdoor Christmas Expo
MISSOULA, Mont.—Booth sales are now open for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s newly revamped Hunter & Outdoor Christmas Exposition, presented by Cabela’s. The Expo will expand to a 10-day show coinciding with the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and take place December 3-12, 2015, in the South Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC).
“We are excited for the new layout and expanded partnership with Las Vegas Events that places the Hunter & Outdoor Christmas Expo under the same roof as the Cowboy Christmas Gift Show,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “The inclusion of elements, including the rodeo arena, from last year’s Cowboy FanFest within our show floor will be a big attraction for attendees and benefit our exhibitors.”
To accommodate the longer stay of exhibitors RMEF, along with our partners at Las Vegas Events, are pleased to offer heavily discounted room rates at the newly renovated Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, which is connected to the LVCC. There are also special RMEF room rates at The Mirage, as well as a daily shuttle service to the LVCC.
The Cowboy Christmas Gift Show and Cowboy Fan Fest welcomed a record of more than 200,000 visitors in 2014.
“The Cowboy Christmas Gift Show is extremely popular for outdoor and western lifestyle folks. Sharing the same location and integration of what was the Cowboy FanFest into both shows allows RMEF to draw on that popularity in better improving our outreach while also providing the potential for both shows to expand into more than 900,000 square feet of space for vendors and attendees to enjoy,” added Decker.
In addition to expanding to 10 days, the show hours have been moved up one hour to 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Both shows are free admission and open to the public.
