In response to member needs, the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) has announced a new and improved education session and speaker lineup for the 2019 Outdoor Hospitality Conference & Expo (OHCE).
The Association’s annual conference will be highlighted by five new educational learning tracks taught in innovative formats by new expert voices, according to ARVC. More than three quarters of the session topics are completely new and will be taught by a cast of new experts from inside and outside the outdoor hospitality industry, the Association said.
These educational innovations are a direct response to information collected after listening to members and attendees of OHCE 2018 through surveys and daily conversations. The feedback received clearly identified five key tracks: Brand Management; Business Management and Practices; Human Resources; Professionalism and Leadership; and Site and Facility Management. By organizing sessions into these tracks, ARVC has created the opportunity for attendees to streamline their learning experience to meet their unique needs.
“Our members told us loud and clear they wanted new voices and content, and we are confident we did just that; created educational sessions and recruited speakers that will exceed their expectations,” says Paula Horwitz, ARVC’s executive director of education and events.
The five new educational tracks are a highlight of the improvements, allowing attendees to focus on their preferred sessions depending on their career path and interests.
"We reimagined this year’s education tracks to allow our attendees to easily customize their learning path during the conference, and after, by attending the sessions that best fit their needs, whether that is sticking with one track or picking a variety of sessions to attend across the board,” said Horwitz.
