70 staff & 180 volunteers
14,500+ from around the world (total # on site)
675 Overland Experience package attendees
Attendees came from as far away as Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Germany, Great Britain, Indonesia, Japan, Peru, Sweden, and Ukraine.
Most U.S. states were represented; in highest attendance was California, Arizona, Colorado and Nevada; others came from as far east as Florida, and from as far north as Alaska. All Canadian providences were in attendance.
Exhibitor registration grew by 30%, our biggest year yet!
The same growth curve was seen in the attendee growth; our premium packages sold out by January and our general tickets for camping sold out by March. Day passes don’t sell out and this year we nearly doubled our numbers.
We are seeing increased growth in ladies attendance and in purchasing adventure vehicles and motorcycles for independent travel.
We launched the Kids Expedition Skills Area, aimed at ages 8-17, and it was a huge success!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT OVERLAND EXPO 2018 WEST:
"All of the training discussions reinforced that what we do is a sport, and it's something that we need to practice at to improve our skills. I'm transitioning from the enduro/dual-sport world, and I'm enjoying the challenge of learning to ride my Rally-Raid Honda CB500X on the tougher ADV trails . . . thank you again for hosting the training Q&A. I left with a positive attitude towards improving my big bike off-road skills, and helping others improve their skills." ~ David Maynard
from instructors / Presenters
"... wanted to say how much I appreciated all of your help in making my first visit such a great time. The information you provided me in advance was timely and comprehensive. Thank you for the opportunity to present at Expo!" ~ Rhonda Reynolds
