Upon approval, you’ll be scheduled to meet with 5-10 exhibitors during dedicated times at the Expo. Meetings will not conflict with you attending any other part of OHCE2020. Attend those meetings and your registration will be refunded! It’s that simple!

Education Sessions

ARVC has not taken the turn of education sessions to a virtual platform lightly. 

We’ve spent countless hours researching best practices and understanding how to make this new approach work for YOU—our members. Sessions are still being finalized, but we are excited to bring you sessions focused on Brand Management; Business Management; Site/Facility Management; Human Resource Management; and Professionalism and Leadership. We can’t wait for you to see what we have in store to make the sessions engaging, inviting, and fun!

Take-Away-Tours

ARVC is also excited about bringing back our ever-popular Take-Away-Tours!  

This virtual tour will take you to three (3) ARVC Member parks to get a behind the scenes look at their operations. In addition, we’ll be bringing you insight and voices from across the ARVC community to talk about how these practices can be used at your own park! Follow these tours up with an open Q/A with our tour hosts and you’re sure to walk away with countless new ideas to improve your park and guest experience. Join us as we “virtually visit” Jolly Roger RV Resort of Marathon, FL, Nature’s RV Resort of Homosassa, FL, and Cross Creek RV Resort of Arcadia, FL.

What is a Hosted Buyer Program?

You will be asked for the following:

  1. basic contact information;
  2. details about your campground and your role as a decision maker;
  3. your annual expense budget;
  4. which products/services you plan on purchasing in the next year; and
  5. a review of purchases you've made in the past year.
How will ARVC’s Hosted Buyer Program work?

Once you register and pay for OHCE2020, you will be asked if you would like to apply to be a Hosted Buyer. The application will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Once submitted, the ARVC team will complete a rigorous qualification process of each application to ensure the applicant is the/a decision maker for the campground.  

What is in the Hosted Buyer application?

You will be asked for the following: 1) basic contact information; 2) details about your campground and your role as a decision maker; 3) details about your annual expense budget; 4) which products/services you plan on purchasing in the next year; and 5) a review of purchases you've made in the past year. 

After I apply to be a Hosted Buyer at #OHCE2020, when will I be notified if my application has been accepted?

All applications will be reviewed and qualified and all applicants will be notified regarding acceptance into the program no later than one (1) week after an application is submitted. 

Am I automatically accepted as a Hosted Buyer just by submitting an application?

No. Submitting an application DOES NOT mean you are automatically accepted as a Hosted Buyer. Your application will be rigorously reviewed to qualify you as a decision maker at your campground before you are accepted into the Hosted Buyer Program.

How many Hosted Buyers will be accepted?

Initially there will be 200 Hosted Buyers accepted into this year’s program. If there is more demand, we will start a wait list. Based on vendor participation, we will begin pulling from the wait list as soon as possible.

How is my registration free if I am Hosted Buyer?

Once you fulfill all your obligations as a Hosted Buyer at OHCE2020, ARVC will refund your $199 registration cost. Refunds will be completed within two (2) weeks of the close of OHCE2020. 

What are Hosted Buyers obligated to do at #OHCE2020?

In order to fulfill your obligation, each Hosted Buyer must attend a minimum of five (5) pre-scheduled meetings with participating vendors at the OHCE2020 virtual tradeshow. The number of required meetings may increase based on demand. ARVC will inform Hosted Buyers of the final required number of meetings on or before October 15, 2020 when scheduling of meetings will begin. 

What happens to my registration fee if I don’t fulfill my obligations as a Hosted Buyer?

If you do not attend the required number of pre-scheduled meetings, ARVC reserves the right to withhold your refund of the $199 registration fee. 

How many Hosted Buyers can there be from each campground?

Each campground is limited to one (1) Hosted Buyer accepted into the program. 

How does the Hosted Buyer Program work if I am a exhibitor?

Exhibitors participate by purchasing meetings with Hosted Buyers. Meetings can be purchased in bundles of five (5). Once the exhibitor has purchased pre-scheduled meetings, they are considered an exhibitor participant of the Hosted Buyer Program. To purchase your Hosted Buyer meeting packages as an exhibitor, contact Gary Headrick or call 303-681-0401

What does it cost to join the Hosted Buyer Program as a exhibitor?

Cost varies based on whether meetings are purchased ala carte, in bundles or as part of a booth/sponsor package. Direct all inquiries to Gary Headrick or extension call our office at 303-681-0401.
