FMCA Selects Gillette, WY for 98th Convention

Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), an international organization for motorhome owners, has announced plans to hold its 98th International Convention & RV Expo at Cam-Plex Multi-Event Facilities in Gillette, Wyoming, July 18 through 21, 2018.

FMCA first held a convention at Cam-Plex in June 2013, when 2,639 motorhomes gathered at the facility to celebrate the Cincinnati-based association’s 50th anniversary.

FMCA’s conventions include an RV Expo that showcases the latest motorhomes, as well as booths filled with RV-related accessories, components, and supplies, plus companies offering services to RVers.

“Attending an FMCA convention is a great way to check out the latest motorhomes and RV products,” FMCA national president Charlie Adcock said. “Not only that, but it’s a fantastic way to learn more about the RV lifestyle, with RV experts presenting seminars about a variety of topics. I’d be leaving out my favorite part, though, if I didn’t mention how much fun it is to spend time with other RV enthusiasts. I love getting together with friends I’ve made at past events and meeting new people, too.”

Set in northeastern Wyoming, Cam-Plex encompasses more than 1,000 acres of land — plenty of room for parking RVs — and boasts a number of large climate-controlled buildings that make it ideal for an FMCA International Convention and RV Expo. The RV-friendly facility also has 1,730 RV sites with various types of hookups, including 1,146 full-service sites and 584 sites with water and electric, plus general parking spots.

Cam-Plex is also relatively close to a number of national parks and monuments, the closest being Devils Tower, approximately an hour’s drive from Gillette.

“Families can plan vacations around the FMCA event and explore all that the western United States has to offer, either on their way to the convention or on their way back home,” said Jon Walker, FMCA national senior vice president, and chairman of the FMCA Convention Committee.

Registration for the event in Gillette will begin on January 10, 2018. Owners of all types of RVs are invited to attend.

FMCA currently is accepting registrations for its July 12 – 15, 2017 event in Indianapolis, Indiana. And registration for FMCA’s 97th International Convention and RV Expo — scheduled for March 15 through 18, 2018, in Perry, Georgia — will begin on September 13.
