NTP-STAG Expo Kicks Off with Well-Attended Seminars


LAS VEGAS – The brand-new Ceasar’s Forum in Las Vegas is the site of this week’s 2022 NTP-STAG Expo, presented by Airxcel. The annual show, returning full-steam after a slightly scaled-back in-person show last year, features a full two days of manufacturer product showcases, educational seminars, exclusive promotions, special events, and industry networking opportunities.

The show kicked off with an RV Women’s Association reception on Monday evening, and most of Tuesday was all about the seminars, featuring a day of exclusive RV University education and informational seminars, including PRO speaker presentations by nationally recognized social media expert, Corey Perlman, as well as marketing and customer experience pro, Kelly McDonald.

McDonald’s presentation, entitled, “How to Market to, Sell to, and Serve People Not Like You” was timely, given how all of the first-time RVers coming into the fold are helping shift the demographics of the customer base. The Pace seminar was very well attended, as the company talked about its TravlFi product, which it touts as a “pay-as-you-go” hotspot.

Later in the day, attendees had their first opportunity to preview the Expo show floor before partaking in the day’s opening reception presented by DISH Outdoors.

“This is an exciting time for the industry to come together in Las Vegas,” said NTP-STAG President Bill Rogers. “It’s a new year, and Expo provides dealers and suppliers an outstanding opportunity to connect in person to explore new products and ideas while we collectively set our sights on the upcoming year.”

The Pace seminar drew a large crowd.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet NASCAR’s national ARCA Menards series driver, Amber Balcaen, courtesy of ICON Direct. The event concludes with the evening reception at Allegiant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders, sponsored by Dometic.

NTP-STAG also has its week-long, follow-up virtual event scheduled for Jan. 31 – Feb. 4.
