Despite the first virtual Outdoor Hospitality Conference & Expo (OHCE2020) wrapping up on Nov. 5, attendees and those that couldn’t attend now are able access recordings of the conference, according to officials from the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC).
More than 25 educational sessions, along with Takeaway Tours of ARVC member-parks, the popular Reservations Systems Panel, the informative general sessions and the keynote address by bestselling author Gretchen Rubin on how to be resilient in the age of COVID, are available on ARVC’s Online Learning Center.
Those that registered for the virtual conference receive access for free, while those that missed out can purchase access to the recordings starting Nov. 23. Access to the OHCE2020 recordings costs $299 for ARVC members and $999 for non-members. ARVC will kick off sales of the recordings with a 10% off Campfire Sale that will run from today (Nov. 24) through 11:59 p.m. MT on Nov. 30. Those interested can purchase access to the recordings through the ARVC Store: Purchase OHCE Recordings
