Overland Expo Expands Into Northern Colorado in August of 2020

The World’s Premier Overland & Adventure Travel Event Series’ Mountain West Edition Will Take Place August 28-30 in Loveland, Colorado

Overland Expo is pleased to announce a new Northern Colorado event as part of the 2020 event series.  The new Mountain West edition of Overland Expo will take place August 28-30, 2020 at The Ranch, just north of Denver, in Loveland, Colorado.  Overland Expo Mountain West will be a world-class adventure travel enthusiast event – like it’s sister events in Flagstaff, Arizona and Arrington, Virginia – comprised of how-to seminars, hands-on field training, driving and adventure motorcycle riding demos, hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of campers with adventure-ready motorcycles and vehicles in a festival environment. 

Nestled in the foothills of the mountains, Loveland is hailed as the “Gateway to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.”  The Ranch is Northern Colorado’s largest events complex with over 60 acres of grassland and 12 acres of landscaped courtyard. The Ranch Events Complex is located just 40 miles north of Denver and 30 miles from Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. This state-of-the-art complex is located within 10 miles of Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, and Windsor. 

“Northern Colorado is a hotbed for adventure seekers of all kinds,” said Jessica Kirchner, VP Marketing Overland Expo.  “When our research pointed towards Colorado as the next step in the Overland Expo series’ expansion, we hand-picked The Ranch to host the event.  The size and professionalism of The Ranch’s event complex, in addition to its proximity nearby many of Northern Colorado’s outdoor lifestyle attractions, make it ideal to host an Overland Expo.”

Overland Expo is a unique event series that will draw more than 15,000 do-it-yourself overlanders, thousands of adventure rigs and motorcycles, 100 volunteers, 150 instructors and trainers, 100 staff members and 200 exhibitors to Colorado from all over the country – and the world.  This, in part, is what makes Overland Expo the world’s premier overland & adventure travel event series. 

“No other event in the world combines a professional trade show with hundreds of session-hours of training from experts in global adventure & expedition travel,” said Kirchner. “Overland Expo is a community, not just a training or trade show, with thousands of people meeting up from all corners of the globe each year to catch up, learn from seasoned travelers and make new friends.  People attend Overland Expo to get trained, get outfitted and get inspired for their next adventure – whether that’s 10 miles or 2,000 miles away from home.”

Overland Expo Mountain West will take place August 28-30, 2020 at The Ranch – Larimer County’s Event Complex at 5280 Arena Circle, Loveland, Colorado 80538.  Exhibitor and attendee registration is available now online at overlandexpo.com.

Additional events in the Overland Expo 2020 calendar include Overland Expo West, May 15-17, 2020 in Flagstaff, Arizona and Overland Expo East, October 9-11,2020 in Arrington, Virginia.
