The Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) will host the Golden Getaway International Convention and RV Expo at the Lancaster Event Center in Nebraska from August 24 to 27,2022.
“We’re looking forward to making our first visit to Nebraska for an FMCA International Convention and RV Expo,” said FMCA Events Director Doug Uhlenbrock.
“All of the excitement that was squashed by the pandemic in 2020 is amping up again, and we are making plans to have a great time in Lincoln. We’ve been impressed during our planning meetings by all that the city and the Lancaster Event Center have to offer RV enthusiasts, and we can’t wait for this gathering.”
The association invites all RV owners and people interested in the event to join the festivities. The FMCA will have a host facility where owners can stay in their RVs during the convention, according to a report.
During the RV Expo, RV manufacturers and dealers will display their latest models and invite attendees for a tour. Travelers will also see RV-related accessories, component services, and other products of interest.
Many RV experts will conduct sessions during the event, ranging from tire maintenance, technology, and safe driving to RV trips to Alaska, New Zealand, Australia, and more.
The event will also have various daytime and evening entertainment, while attendees will have many chances to socialize with the rest of the attendees and guest experts. Its activities range from morning coffee hour and ice cream social to impromptu meetups.
FMCA and title sponsor Blue Ox will co-host “Welcome To Lincoln Night” for attendees, who will be invited to come downtown for a night of food and entertainment.
The RV owners will be encouraged to check out the restaurants, shops, and other attractions in the Haymarket District, with discounts offered by many area businesses.
