The Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO) has just released its annual Vendor Guide, which is available for free in printed and digital formats for TACO members.
“We publish a booklet for every TACO member that has all of our vendors in it,” said Brian Schaeffer, TACO’s executive director and CEO. “The Vendor Guide includes their contact information and a description of their products and services. Vendors can also advertise in it. Additionally, we include the guide in the new member package we send out whenever a campground signs up to join our association along with the TACO Legal Handbook and TACO sign to display at their park.”
The 2022 TACO Vendor Guide features 81 companies specializing in everything from accounting and booking, banking, and finance to campground consulting, equipment and management to glamping and park model accommodations, website, and Wi-Fi services.
“The TACO Vendor Guide is a great resource for any vendor looking to connect with Texas campgrounds,” said Chris Hipple, vice president and general managing partner of Leavitt Recreation and Hospitality Insurance, Inc. in Sturgis, S.D.
Hipple continued, “The directory is also a great resource when we want to connect with another vendor to ask them a question. The TACO directory is the only source I use when I’m marketing in Texas. Between attending the TACO convention and the Vendor Guide, I know that Texas Campgrounds have multiple opportunities to connect with our company.”
Additional vendor exposure comes from prospective TACO members, who for their part, can view the TACO Vendor Guide online at https://tacomembers.com/.
Based in Crowley, the Texas Association of Campground Owners is the trade association that represents over 400 campground and RV park operators throughout Texas.
