OCRV & Van Lifestyle Show to be held Oct. 12-15 in Ocean City

September 10, 2023

Delmarva’s ultimate adventure lifestyle showcase will take place from Thursday to Sunday, Oct. 12 to 15, in Ocean City, Md. 

The OCRV & Van Lifestyle Show is cementing its position as Delmarva’s leading event fostering and focusing on adventure lifestyles, boasting impressive attendance from vendors all over the United States and Canada.

Over four action-packed days, the 2023 OCRV & Van Lifestyle Show is expected to attract thousands of visitors to view hundreds of adventure lifestyle products, an impressive RV and custom van lineup, and some tiny homes and watercraft. 

“The feedback from exhibitors is extraordinary, and industry partners see this becoming a must-attend event on the Eastern Shore for RV and custom van life enthusiasts. It offers an unparalleled opportunity to market and sell new RVs and custom vans while showcasing the adventure lifestyle,” said Rich Hutchins, OCRV show promoter. 

“This event is a collaborative effort between us, our sponsors, partners and exhibitors. We’re passionate about delivering an exceptional visitor experience and providing the best platform for exhibitors to showcase their products to an engaged audience. We eagerly anticipate hosting our first event and hope this format proves to be a highly successful strategy.”

Patrick Connell, owner of The RV Shop, said, “It’s a truly unique show, an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. It’s the only RV show embracing the outdoor lifestyle with kayaks, e-bikes, off-road power sports, vans, SUP, scooters, fishing, golf carts, and more – everything related to the outdoors, which aligns perfectly with our values. It’s the perfect partnership for us.”

The overwhelming response since promoters first launched their idea to the Roland E. Powell Convention Center executive team reaffirmed the market’s appetite for an adventure lifestyle, and the continuing allure of Ocean City as a premier destination for showcasing the finest offerings both on and off the road.

“The OCRV & Van Lifestyle Show is the perfect platform to showcase our spectacular tiny home models. It’s a truly unique event, appealing to a discerning audience – a perfect fit for Great Outdoor Cottages,” said Billy Scheid, director of marketing and key accounts.

This event is a true celebration of the outdoors and adventure travel lifestyle, bringing together campers, hikers, cyclists, off-road riders, paddlesport lovers and more for an extended weekend of family fun, inspiration and education.

Show hours are 12 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 12; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Oct. 13 and 14; and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 15. The show will be held at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center, 4001 Coastal Highway, Ocean City, Md.
