What is the COE?

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!

Experienced Organizers

Lori, Bud, and their staff, have spoken at and participated in hundreds of shows with a combined 50 years of industry and expo experience!

Why Participate?

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

LEARN – Help campground owners all over the U.S. determine what products and services they need! Hear directly from your prospects instead of assuming!

GROW – Connect with decision-makers from over 15 states to solidify or create new relationships and grow your business. Support those who support you!

INSPIRE – Is there an application for your products and services that you don’t even know about? Demonstrate your products and services while you explore unique possibilities!

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!
