FMCA Begins Registration For 99th Convention and RV Expo
Members of this association for RV owners will gather in Perry, Georgia, March 13 through 16, 2019, and sign-ups are under way.
Cincinnati, OH — FMCA, a Cincinnati-based international association for RV owners, is now accepting registrations for its 99th International Convention and RV Expo. Set to take place March 13 through 16, 2019, at the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter in Perry, Georgia, the FMCA event packs in four days of RV education; daytime and nightly entertainment; shopping for RVs, related components, and accessories; and opportunities for fun and socializing with other RV enthusiasts.
“I’m super excited to get the ball rolling for Perry, our home away from home,” said Doug Uhlenbrock, director of events. “While registration may have just opened, we’re already deep into planning for what should be another outstanding show. I can’t wait to start talking about all of the new and exciting things we have in store for attendees who join us for FMCA’s 99th convention.”
The location of the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter, just off Interstate 75, a main north-south route for snowbirds, makes it an ideal venue for an RV-related gathering in March. A number of FMCA’s largest, most successful events have taken place there, most recently in March 2018. The convention in 2019, which has been dubbed “Peachy In Perry,” will mark FMCA’s 11th event at the fairgrounds.
A variety of registration options are available – ranging from a $10 single-day pass that provides admission only to the exhibits to a $225 full-access pass ($215 with cash or check payment discount). The full-access pass enables the attendee to bring their RV, stay right at the fairgrounds, and enjoy all of the activities with others who share a passion for the RV lifestyle. Early-bird rates currently are in effect and represent a savings of $20 off the gate registration price. Electric hookups can be added for an additional fee.
With so much going on at an FMCA event, one common complaint afterward is that attendees didn’t have enough time to do everything they wanted to. One solution is to sign up for RV Basics. This two-and-a-half-day workshop led by RV experts takes place right at the convention site and right before the event itself starts. The RV Basics course is designed for those new to the RV lifestyle or even those just contemplating the idea, as well as more seasoned RVers looking to brush up on their knowledge.
The cost for the two and a half days of classes — March 10 through 12, 2019 — is $250 per person or $400 per couple. This includes an additional three nights of camping for those who also register for the convention. To learn more, visit www.FMCA.com/academy.
To register for the convention, RV Basics, or both, visit FMCA.com or call (513) 474-3622 or (800) 543-3622.
