With their most profitable event just around the corner, the Napa Valley Expo board of directors met Tuesday (March 29) with planners to discuss what the future of the California event might look like, the Napa Valley Register reported.

The LSA Associates Inc. planning team presented its preliminary findings, highlighting opportunities and constraints within the 34-acre space.

“We understand that the Expo is more than a fair,” said Marcia D. Vallier of Vallier Design Associates, who is working with LSA Associates Inc. on the planning project. Vallier said that there are a lot of great things that can happen in the Expo space while still accommodating current users, including BottleRock, which has a 10-year contract to take over many of the facilities each May.

The Expo is home to the Bingo Emporium, Napa Fermentation, the Napa Valley Model Railroad Club, the winter homeless shelter, an RV park and many annual events including the Napa Home and Garden Show, Rootstock and the Wine Country Kennel Club.

Airstream Dream, a proposed fancy RV park, could maintain its own facilities and share space with the existing RV park, creating a feeling of community, Vallier said.
