2020 MAC Conference & Trade Show

TEE UP 2020

29th Annual Mid-Atlantic Coastal States Campground Conference & Trade Show

March 16th to 18th, 2020

Campground owners and managers along the Mid-Atlantic Coastal states region can TEE UP 2020 when they attend the 29th Annual Mid-Atlantic Coastal States Campground Conference and Trade Show (MAC), March 16 to 18 in Dover, DE. The 3-day conference will feature keynote luncheon speakers, 10 educational seminars, and over 30 exhibitors at the industry specific trade show.

Event organizer, Joann DelVescio commented, "the annual conference invites all campground owners and managers from New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia to attend the informative and exciting conference." She continued, "the MAC Conference and Trade Show is a great option for campgrounds who may not be able to attend the larger and faraway conferences. MAC is a local and affordable option."

Joann has gathered a variety of industry speakers for educational seminars that will help campground owners have a successful 2020 season. Examples of a few speakers include, Dave Basler, Vice President of Membership and Marketing, ARVC and a representative from Google. Basler will speak at the opening session about industry trends and insights. The Google representative will speak about how to reach customers online with Google. The Trade Show, featuring companies and products for campground and RV park owners, will be held on Tuesday, March 17th. The show allows owners to see first-hand new products and services being offered. They will have the opportunity to place orders and free up time in the spring.

Attendees will have many opportunities to socialize and network during meals and down time. Tuesday's Exhibitor Luncheon offers attendees and trade show exhibitors a relaxed atmosphere to meet before the trade show. On Tuesday evening the Annual Banquet & Auction is held. "This is an enjoyable evening where everyone, including the exhibitors, are invited to socialize, share stories, reconnect with old friends and make new", Joann remarked.

The easily accessible and convenient location of the conference, the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Dover, DE, offers campground owners a chance to relax before the start of the season.
