Safari Club International organizers expects upwards of 24,000 international hunters to visit Las Vegas and the Mandalay Bay Convention Center Feb. 3-6, 2016 for SCI’s 44th Annual Hunters’ Convention.
SCI says the Hunters’ Convention represents the largest and most successful event to raise money for advocacy to protect hunters’ rights. The 2016 Hunters’ Convention will be the largest in the organization’s history with nearly a million square feet of exhibits and 2,500 vendors!
SCI adds this hunters’ heaven has everything the mind can dream of and occupies over 650,000 square feet of exhibit space. Six continents are under one roof where members come to book hunts, rendezvous with old friends and shop for the latest guns and hunting equipment. Organizers say that only scratches the surface of products available at SCI’s Annual Hunters’ Convention. Notable authorities of the outdoor sports and shooting industries attend the premier hunting show annually.
There are dozens of informative and educational seminars designed to provide attendees the opportunity to learn new hunting techniques or refine old ones, discover imaginative ways to prepare wild game, or to glean tips on the best care for your equipment and gear. Countless topics that appeal to the hunting sportsman are covered.
When the exhibit halls close the evening fun and excitement begins. Each night, members come together to celebrate the accomplishments of the organization and enjoy top entertainment and speakers. SCI’s evening auctions offer top of the line guns, once in a lifetime hunts, the finest artwork and more. SCI says every purchase provides crucial funds to help preserve our hunting heritage and enable conservation efforts to occur around the globe.
