More than 500 vendors and 15,000 patrons are expected to converge on the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston on July 20-22 as Outdoor Sportsman Group’s Sportsman Channel plays host to the first-ever Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest. Comcast Houston has signed on as the event’s first major sponsor.
With nearly 1.1 million hunters and nearly 2.4 million anglers living in Texas and spending more than $6.2 billion dollars annually in their respective pursuits, the Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest expects more than 15,000 outdoor lifestyle enthusiasts to attend the first-ever Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest over the three day exposition. The George R. Brown Convention Center covers more than 220,000 square feet of exhibit hall space and will welcome exhibitors from the outdoor marketplace. Besides showcasing some of the most current outdoor lifestyle equipment, gadgets, clothing and recreational accessories, the jam-packed schedule of events also will include: speaking programs and discussions about outdoor lifestyle issues and current events, celebrity appearances, seminars, demonstrations and more.
“Besides plenty of proud Astros fans, we know Houston has its share of outdoorsmen and women too,” Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO, Jim Liberatore said. “With Houston’s rich tradition in hunting, fishing and outdoor lifestyle activities, the Sportsman Channel Outdoor Fest will remind all of us about the positive wonders of the outdoors in spite of the fury nature sometimes displays.”
