An RV expo takes place during each FMCA convention. RVs in a variety of types, sizes, and price ranges will be on display, making this an ideal event for someone considering purchasing an RV.

All RV owners are invited to take part in FMCA's “Southern Charm" event in March. Approximately 2,700 RVs are expected to attend the event.

Members of FMCA — an international association for RV owners — are making plans to head to Perry, Georgia, March 15 through 18 for the group’s 97th International Convention & RV Expo. Owners of approximately 2,700 RVs will take part in the event, which has been dubbed “Southern Charm,” in honor of the host area. All RV owners are invited to join the fun.

“We love visiting the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry,” said FMCA national president Jon Walker. “The staff at the fairgrounds and members of the local community are friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make FMCA members feel welcome.”

This, in part, explains the fact that FMCA will be hosting its 10th event at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in March. In addition to being located right off Interstate 75, a main north-south route for snowbirds and other travelers, the facility is tailor-made for an FMCA convention. It has abundant space for families to park their RVs and stay on-site, and it offers first-class facilities to accommodate the exhibits, seminars, and other activities that take place during an FMCA event.

The RV expo that unfolds during the FMCA convention is a key element. Major RV manufacturers and dealers come together to present a fantastic shopping opportunity for those looking to purchase their first RV or their next. RVs in a variety of types, sizes, and price ranges will be on display. Plus, hundreds of companies will set up displays of RV components and accessories, home products, and RV-related services.

Exhibit hours are 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 15, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Friday through Sunday, March 16, 17, and 18.

When they aren’t shopping, attendees can take part in seminars about topics ranging from towing a vehicle behind a motorhome to microwave-convection cooking. Approximately 100 different sessions will be held, so plenty of educational opportunities will present themselves.

Multiple options are available for attending FMCA conventions. RV owners are invited to bring their vehicle and stay on-site to enjoy all of the activities. Those who don’t yet own an RV are welcome to come for the day and just explore the RV expo, or purchase a passport that allows them to take part in all activities (with no RV parking).

Registration for the event in Perry is under way at and by phone at (513) 474-3622 or (800) 543-3622.
