With a new pressroom and easy pre-registration process for media, the Dallas Safari Club (DSC) welcomes the world’s sporting press to the 2015 DSC convention and expo.
The event is Jan. 15-18 in downtown Dallas at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center and Omni Hotel Dallas.
“Overall, we had 43,000 attendees in 2014 and we’re expecting even more in 2015, so we’re urging pre-registration for the writers and broadcasters coming to our show to cover the best in sporting adventures, lifestyles and conservation,” said DSC Executive Director Ben Carter.
To pre-register, contact Blue Heron Communications media coordinator Steve Wagner at email@example.com. Qualified registrants, upon arrival at the convention center, can simply follow the signs to the new pressroom to pickup their badge.
Pressroom hours and show hours are the same: Thursday thru Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sun. 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The public-welcome, family-friendly DSC expo will fill a record 800,000 square feet. Over 1,000 exhibitors will feature outfitted hunts, guns, gear and much more. Live seminars, the American Custom Gunmakers Guild exposition, Wingshooter’s World section hosted by Quail Coalition, plus food and attractions, are among the highlights.
The DSC convention and expo is one of the biggest fundraising events in Texas. In the Dallas region it trails only the HP Byron Nelson Golf Championship, according to the Dallas Business Journal. Over the past five years, the event has generated more than $4.5 million for conservation, education and hunter advocacy initiatives around the world.
In 2014 alone, DSC raised more than $1 million earmarked for conservation causes worldwide – plus another $350,000 specifically for black rhinos in Namibia.
