YORK, PA- The Keystone Outdoor Expo has selected York County, PA as the site of its first annual sportsman and outdoor show to be held at the York Expo Center's Utz Arena from August 16-18, 2013. Show organizers are aiming to attract between 10,000-20,000 attendees with a minimum of 150 vendors.

The show, organized by Rich Huff, owner of Conewago Valley Whitetails, will feature a variety of vendors selling everything from tents to trail cameras, as well as bows, firearms, kayaks and more! Plus, show attendees can view demos, book hunting trips and chat with representatives from outdoor destinations.

"The goal of this show is to connect hunters, campers and fisherman with organizations that can provide them with goods and services related to these activities," said Rich Huff, Show Organizer, Keystone Outdoor Expo. "I aim to create an environment where vendors have the opportunity to sell and visitors have the opportunity to see a wide variety of high-quality products."

The show decided to hold its inaugural event in York County because of the area's close proximity to metropolitan areas such as Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, as well as the York Expo Center's easy accessibility, free parking and vendor amenities.
