EXETER, Pa. – The 2023 NTP-STAG EXPO, presented by Airxcel, is coming Jan. 16-17 to the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, Colo., according to a release.

The event will feature a full two days of manufacturer product showcases, educational seminars, exclusive promotions, special events, and industry networking opportunities.
“Being our signature event, EXPO Presented by Airxcel provides the first opportunity of the year where the RV business assembles for valuable interaction and networking while industry professionals can learn about exciting new products and industry advances,” said NTP-STAG President, Bill Rogers. “The relaxed and casual location in Colorado provides a wonderful environment for many of the industry’s dealers, leading suppliers and manufacturers to connect and exchange beneficial insight.”
As attendees arrive for the two-day EXPO program, they are invited to join the welcome reception on Sunday, January 15 from 6:00-8:00 pm sponsored by Lippert. This welcome reception is a new addition to the event, where attendees can meet NTP-STAG staff and plan their show agenda as they prepare for the full slate of show activities.
These activities include a pair of not-to-be-missed speakers starting with Monday’s PRO Kick Off Breakfast featuring Brian Billick, head coach of Super Bowl XXXV (35) Champion Baltimore Ravens for nine seasons along with Tuesday’s Keynote Breakfast Address sponsored by Carefree of Colorado with twelve-year NFL veteran Joe Theismann. Billick will share his Twelve Principals of Success to the audience with Theismann, who led the Washington Redskins to victory in Super Bowl XVII (17), sharing his firsthand knowledge on how to deal with the Challenge of Change.
“Brian Billick and Joe Theismann are successful men of character who have achieved tremendous results over the course of their impressive careers,” said Rogers. “We are pleased to present impactful discussions from these exemplary leaders and legendary Superbowl Champions.” Theismann will also be on the EXPO show floor from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. to meet and engage with attendees.
The show will feature a new product showcase highlighting the latest offerings from manufacturers while the Outdoor Recreation Exhibit, Presented by Dometic will incorporate both vehicles and key category accessories along with merchandising and planogram ideas to assist dealers with the process of attracting customers involved in this dynamic category.
“We strive to identify opportunities for our partners and customers to expand their offerings and engage with the next generation of RVers,” said NTP-STAG Vice President of Category Management and Marketing, Larry Montante. “This lifestyle is attracting a broad range of enthusiasts that encompasses such areas as Van Life and Car Camping along with a host of outdoor adventure pursuits such as biking, kayaking, boating, skiing, fishing and more. With our extensive portfolio of products and accessories readily available to dealers, the EXPO Outdoor Recreation Exhibit will demonstrate how the RV industry is well positioned to address these needs and how to approach communicating and merchandising to successfully reach this audience.”
EXPO will conclude on Tuesday evening onsite with a closing reception.
“Dealers can expect fantastic savings on many popular and in-demand products in addition to informative manufacturer presentations and exhibits throughout the show floor,” added Rogers. “Most importantly, this is our opportunity to spend time catching up with our valued customers and suppliers, explore how we can continue to positively impact the RV industry together, and have some fun in the process.”
