What People Are Saying

From Sponsors:

Four Wheel Campers has been proud to be one of the major sponsors of the Overland Expo event since the very beginning. The first event was held at a small horse racing stadium, just outside of Prescott, Arizona about 10 years ago (attached are a few pictures from the original event). There might have only been 30 or 40 vendors at the time, with just a few products on display in each booth. We have been honored and excited to watch the Overland Expo grow each year. We have also been excited to watch our customer base and sales grow each year along with it. I believe it has been a win/win for everyone involved. At Overland Expo West 2019 this year, we had a great experience working with Anthony Sciola and all of the helpful staff from Lodestone Events. We look forward to Overland Expo East later this year in Virginia!

From Attendees:

"I want to truly thank you for an awesome time this past weekend in Flagstaff. Being my first time there, I was not sure exactly what to expect. My mind was blown away with all the awesome vendors and the gear available for my adventure vehicle set up. Everyone I talked to - vendors and patrons - spoke so highly of the expo. I met so many great people and I was so impressed by the whole event.

I am considering going to the East event because I had such a great time here at the Flagstaff event.

Great Job and I look forward to many other events."

- Steve Jones - attendee
