Largest Outdoor Expo
Visit Kingsport’s 2nd Annual 3B Outdoors National Expo, the largest outdoors expo in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, will return to MeadowView Marriott Convention Center March 9-11.
Last year’s inaugural event, held in January, proved to be a tremendous success, drawing thousands to the Expo despite less than perfect weather conditions brought on by snow. Moving the event to March will ensure larger crowds and even more vendors at the event.
“Obviously, by moving the 3B Outdoors National Expo to March we’re anticipating much better weather,” said Jud Teague, Executive Director of Visit Kingsport. “People were really excited about last year’s event and came out even though it snowed so we feel sure that by moving it into March attendance should only grow this year.”
“We’re really looking forward to this year’s Expo, which will have even more vendors in the show room,” said Bradley Hoover, 3B Outdoors National Expo Director. “We have Dixie Custom Rods, Heybo Outdoors and MGC Tackle coming back again this year and Tactacam, Bigbassassin, The Relish Barn and many more coming for the first time. As we get closer to the Expo we’ll be revealing more of the vendors coming from outside this region – even some that will be coming from Canada.”
