Lodestone Events, producers of the Overland Expo event series, will host a fourth Overland Expo event in 2022, the organization announced. Called Overland Expo Pacific Northwest, the event will be held July 8-10, 2022 at Deschutes County Fairgrounds & Expo Center in Redmond, Oregon.
“It was incredible to see the reception and feel the support our fans and exhibitors gave us in 2021 after such a tough year away. Based upon the success of the new Mountain West show, and the overlanding demand we’ve seen in the Pacific Northwest, we felt 2022 was ripe for expansion,” said Lodestone Events Marketing VP Jessica Kirchner. “Central Oregon is a perfect location to round out the Overland Expo event series. We could not be more excited to come to an outdoorsy region rich with natural beauty to outfit, educate, and inspire more overlanders.”
Tickets and camping packages for all four of the Overland Expo 2022 events are currently on sale now. Booth space is on sale now for returning clients and will go on sale to new exhibitors on December 15, 2021.
Across the three Overland Expo events in 2021, the series hosted more than 59,000 attendees and 855 exhibitors, which was the event series’ largest attendance and exhibitor numbers since the series began, the company said, and was the reasoning for the addition of the fourth annual event, Pacific Northwest, for 2022.
