The Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo (OHCE) switched from education mode into the Expo on Wednesday.

The day opened with an invigorating and informative Trends and Insights Presentation by KOA President and CEO Toby O'Rourke, saw a hilarious Keynote lecture on generation differences by Matt Havens and wrapped up with a Reservation Systems Panel that had attendees fixated as they learned about the best software options for their park. The night featured the Expo opening, allowing campground owners and operators in attendance to apply knowledge gained in the classrooms to meet with over 130 vendors, all offering services designed to improve business.

Thursday, the final day of OHCE, will open with the Annual Membership Meeting and Breakfast, a full day of the Expo. OHCE will close with ARVC's best-of-the-best taking home awards and the ARVC Foundation Auction raising funds to support fellow members of the outdoor hospitality industry, before a final after party to close the week in style.
