Join us in October 7-9, 2016, for the third annual
Overland Expo EAST, near Asheville, North Carolina. 

At the Biltmore Estate

We are the premier overlanding event in the world—no other event offers the scope of classes taught by the world's leading experts, alongside a professional-level trade show that brings together in one place all the camping and vehicle and motorcycle equipment and services you need to get outfitted and get going. 


See all the ways in which you can participate below.

I really would like to personally thank you and your crew for putting on one amazing event. I have wanted to attend this for a couple of years now and for my 50th birthday my wife and I and our 2 dogs drove 1,600 miles round trip to attend your event. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves adventure travel. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the variety of vendors was outstanding. I will attend again. This was a BUCKET LISTER.”
