This upcoming weekend is the 2014 Overland Expo. The international event is held outside of Flagstaff, Arizona and looks to educate and inspire people to get out and explore the world by bike or vehicle. Each year, there are two Overland Expos, one held outdoors in Flagstaff in May and another held inside in Asheville, North Carolina in October.
Travel enthusiasts from across the globe will be flocking to Mormon Lake, where the upcoming event is being held. They will have plenty of things to keep them busy this year as the one-of-a-kind event will feature more than 140 different classes, workshops and roundtable programs. And that’s not even close to everything this event will include. Over 180 companies are also putting exhibits up at the event, featuring everything from motorcycles and ATVs to security products like a portable safe for travelers.
Event-goers will also have the chance to speak with various experts, authors and videographers from across the globe, as well as enjoy a wide array of food and drink options. The event will even include a film festival and various happy hours. This year, event planners expect that more than 6,000 attendees.
For someone who travels often, the Overland Expo might be the only place they can call home. And with so many travel enthusiasts arriving to the same location for a weekend of fun, there will be onsite and nearby camping available.
Registration for the event is still open, giving attendees a full, all-inclusive education package known as “the Overland Experience.” However, day passes are also available for those who can’t make it for the whole weekend. Those who choose this option can still participate in a number of “a la carte programs,” according to the Overland Expo website.
Representatives from Tuffy Security Products will also be at the expo, both presenting and enjoying the events each day, so be sure to stop by, say hello and check out our products and services.
