NTP-STAG Expo Draws Enthusiastic Crowd, Features NBA Legend

Bill Walton NTP 2024

The hallway outside the doors to the NTP-STAG Expo was jammed with dealers and repair shop professionals ready to get to business Monday evening and again this morning. With packed walkways, crowded booths, and lots of smiles and handshakes, the vibe at the distributor’s show is decidedly enthusiastic. 

“Busy” seems to be the word most exhibitors at NTP-STAG Expo are using to describe the show – which is music to the industry’s ears after a slower-than-desired 2023. 

The expo, held at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida, brought together the RV and marine industries for the first time under the NTP-STAG moniker. The show ends today at 5 p.m. ET. 

Day two featured keynote speaker and NBA legend Bill Walton, sponsored by Carefree of Colorado, who spotlighted NTP-STAG and co-host SeaWide in his list of core values that create a “great team.”  Walton also detailed his journey with numerous physical injuries, including being a cancer survivor.

“The strength of the team is the strength of the individual,” Walton said in his keynote speech. “Never measure yourself by what you have done, but by what you could or should have done.”

“There are no rewards for settling for something you don’t want.”

Walton also shared his personal mantra: Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
