Cincinnati, Ohio — FMCA, North America’s largest independent organization for RV owners, has announced it will return to the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson, Arizona, March 26 through 29, 2020 for its 101st International Convention and RV Expo. The last time the group met there was in March 1985.
“I’m not sure why this facility fell off the radar screen of event organizers at FMCA but we’ve recently made site visits to check out its current status and feel sure it will make a great gathering place for our members,” said FMCA national president Jon Walker. “In addition to enjoying the area’s great weather, attendees will be able to take in a variety of nearby attractions before or after the convention itself.”
During an FMCA convention, RV owners stay at the host facility in their RVs, and a small city takes shape, seemingly overnight. RVers can opt for electric hookups during their stay or rely instead on their onboard resources.
RVs on-site will include hundreds of new models displayed by major manufacturers and dealers as part of the RV Expo.
FMCA will make use of the Old Pueblo Conference and Event Center for displays of RV-related accessories, components, services and other products of interest to travelers. Another element of an FMCA convention is education. A hundred seminars are presented, with topics ranging from chassis and engine maintenance to microwave-convection cooking.
Both daytime and evening entertainment is offered plus ample time for club members to socialize in organized or informal gatherings.
Meanwhile, registrations currently are being accepted for FMCA’s upcoming convention in Perry, Georgia, March 13 through 16, 2019. Registration for FMCA’s convention in Minot, North Dakota, August 14 through 17, 2019, will begin on February 13, 2019.
