2020 Sport Shows

Here's a line up of sport shows where you can expect to see Sunset Country Booths this trade show season!

Trade show season is upon us in the outdoors and travel industry! Stop by one of these five shows to chat with our friendly and knowledagble staff about the Sunset Country region, how to get here, what to do, and why you're bound to return year after year!

Sport and travel shows can be an excellent way to gather a wealth of information for your 2020 travel plans! Sometimes, though, they can even be a tad overwhelming. We are here to help you, and help you we will!

Visit our booth to pick up a FREE copy of our 2020 Travel Guide (or order online also for free here) which includes an inserted fishing map, town maps, member listings, border crossing resources, and much, much more information. 

Ask us about our amazing members! We have over 300 of them! We can help you narrow down lodge choices that suit you and your needs the best, discuss activities you and the whole family will love, and even retail businesses to meet your every shopping need. Explore unique vacations from houseboating to fly-in fishing or even fully outfitted canoeing expeditions. 

Want to talk fishing? Good, so do we! All of our Sunset Country staff are anglers and some of us are hunters. We can help direct you to lodges, guides or angling and hunting experiences you may be interested in while visiting Sunset Country. Looking for a specific species to target? We've got you covered, and if you need more choices, the back of our fishing map has a handy table where you can search by species.
