The 2024 DSC Convention & Sporting Expo held Jan. 11-14 in Dallas, Texas was a massive success for attendees, DSC Exhibitor Partners and worldwide Conservation!
Attendees and exhibitor partners from all corners of the world gathered during the four-day Convention, and the show could not have gone on without the dedicated DSC 100 Volunteer Army, who once again answered the bell and turned out to support their organization. Without their help and loyalty, this event would not have been possible.
From the moment the doors opened Thursday morning, the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center was alive with activity. Attendees utilized the new Express Badge Check-in to quickly retrieve their pre-purchased passes and head directly into the exhibit hall. Once there, close to 1,000 of DSC’s Exhibitor Partners offered the finest in North American and worldwide hunting and fishing adventures, outdoor gear, art, jewelry, taxidermy, furniture and so much more.
Following the Convention doors closing in the evenings, it was on to the nightly banquets and live auctions. The parties started with the Wednesday night Exhibitor’s Welcome Party and Casino Night, which tripled last year’s attendance record.
The Thursday, Friday and Saturday night banquets were sold out, and the live and online auctions, as well as those at the Ladies’ Luncheon and Life Member Breakfast, raised millions in support of the DSC mission of Conservation, Education and Advocacy.
Banquet attendees got to hear from some of the titans of the outdoor industry, including Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo, U.S. Rep. Jake Ellzey, Lt Col. Charles Hartford, Buffalo Kloof’s Warne and Hannah Rippon and many more.
DSC now turns its attention toward Atlanta, Georgia for the next few years. Atlanta will host its first DSC Convention Jan. 9-12, 2025, at the Georgia World Congress Center.
Along with an exciting new venue for the January show, DSC will also host a new Convention July 17-19 at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, in the DFW Metroplex only minutes from the DFW airport.
