Who We Are

The Campground Owners Expo (COE), owned by Severson & Associates, a Management, Training and Consulting firm, was formed to give campground owners numerous networking opportunities. Lori Severson, Owner of Severson & Associates and Bud Styer, from Bud Styer Associates, Camping for the Fun of It, have successfully participated in hundreds of shows with a combined 50 years of industry, campground association, and trade show experience!

What will COE do for you?

In these trying times we would like to give you the information and knowledge we have acquired for campgrounds around the USA. Whether you already have a State Association and need help growing it, or you don’t yet have an association in your State, participate in the COE and network with other campground owners who want to take their business to the next level! You’ll find an inviting environment with forward thinking campground owners just like you who are looking to improve their bottom line! We will help you grow your business.

Why Should You Participate?

Your COE experience is built on three pillars – learn, grow, inspire!

LEARN from owners and managers in 15 states. What worked, what didn’t, and what haven’t you tried?

GROW your business, your bottom line, and your supplier connections.

INSPIRE other owners and managers with your stories of success and lessons from failures.

Add-On Experience (Wednesday 12/15)

One of the exciting features of the all new Campground Owners Expo is the opportunity to go “backstage” at one of Branson’s longest running shows, Presleys’ Country Jubilee! This exclusive COE group session (held on Wednesday afternoon 12/15) includes a Q&A with cast members where you’ll learn how they work with family, create a guest experience that fills seats night after night, how they’ve had to adapt & recreate themselves over the years and discover how they create ancillary income.

Your event ticket includes a whiskey tasting from a Missouri Ridge Distillery & Brewery, the Presley’s show, meet & greet and the Q&A. Campground attendees and exhibitors are all invited to attend, and bring their family and/or guests along as well! Each person will need their own ticket.

Pre-order your event ticket now and you could win! Every Monday until COE, we will be picking a winner from all pre-orders for fun prizes, including VISA gift cards and more!
