FMCA’s 106th International Convention & RV Expo is set for March 15-18, 2023, at the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter (GNFA) in Perry, Ga., and if early registration is any indication, officials believe this will be the RV association’s largest gathering in years.

In the first week, more than 700 RVers signed up for the “Lucky 13” event, aptly named since this is FMCA’s 13th convention to be held at GNFA, the most at any single location. According to event organizers, the exceptional registration numbers are a testament to the venue and to FMCA members’ excitement surrounding this convention.

“There’s no doubt that the Georgia National Fairgrounds is one of the premier facilities for hosting an FMCA event,” said Doug Uhlenbrock, director of events with FMCA. “It has everything we look for in a convention site: plenty of great parking space; a wide array of buildings for our seminars, exhibits, entertainment, and offices; beautiful, well-kept grounds; and a convenient location just off I-75. Plus, such a great staff to work with who really understand FMCA and what we need to present a successful event.”

FMCA’s 2021 convention at GNFA was its first following the COVID-19 shutdown in 2020 and required numerous restrictions to satisfy Georgia and Houston County protocols at the time. While many attendees deemed the convention a success, the numbers were much lower than in previous FMCA events at the grounds. Now, as pandemic uncertainties subside, the 2023 registration figures suggest FMCA RVers are eager to return to their Southern convention “home.”

“Our attendees consistently tell us that Perry is one of their favorite places to go, so that’s why we’re back for our thirteenth show there,” Uhlenbrock said. “After COVID-19 minimized the opportunities for large gatherings in 2020 and 2021, and the spike in fuel prices kept folks from traveling as much in 2022, our members are ready to get back to the fun and excitement that only an FMCA convention provides. We have numerous chapters and groups who cannot wait to converge in middle Georgia for a week of socializing with friends they may not have seen in a few years.”

General registration for the convention is $250 per couple for all event activities and on-site parking. Additional parking options are available to those who would like to purchase 30-amp or 50-amp electric. RVers who want to attend the convention as full registrants but do not want to stay on site can register for a two-person Passport for $185.
