Overland Expo is 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.
The Biltmore Estate is a beautiful forested venue bisected by the French Broad River. It is located just moments from downtown Asheville and is the gateway to the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Appalachian backcountry.
There are two ways to attend: register online ahead for an all-inclusive education package—the Overland Experience—or a Weekend Pass (all weekend, with or without the camping option) and enjoy exhibitors and a variety of select programs; one-day Friday, Saturday or Sunday passes will also be available at the gate only.
What is overlanding? Isn't it just a fancy word for something I already do... camping?
Overlanding is a way to describe exploring by your own self-contained means, usually by vehicle (often with four-wheel-drive capability) or adventure motorcycle. It's long been a traditional way to describe safaris in Africa or exploring in Australia. Brits head "overland" to Africa and Asia and across the Continent.
We use the term to differentiate the activity from other four-wheel-drive activities such as rock-crawling or rallying. For overlanders, the journey is as important as the destination or the activities that we do when we get to our destination (if there even is a specific destination): hiking, nature watching, kayaking, mountain biking, and so on.
For overlanders, camping is really a highlight as well—we enjoy innovations such as roof-top tents, 12-volt fridges, and high-quality awnings, ground tents, kitchen kits, and equipment such as compressors, winches, and other recovery gear.
Overland Expo is designed as a unique event to introduce consumers to all the innovative equipment for camping and vehicles, and to introduce travel enthusiasts to the pleasures of exploring the world by your own self-contained means, whether it's an old van or a new Land Cruiser or Sportsmobile or BMW motorcycle.
Through social events, programs, classes, and exhibitors, Overland Expo is the largest and most unique event combining adventure travel, vehicles, and motorcycles with education & commerce.
It's the place to come to get outfitted, get trained, get inspired . . . and get going.
