Where else can you find so much information available in one place? Throughout the four-day event, industry experts, manufacturer representatives, and service providers convey the latest information about RVs and the traveling lifestyle.
At an FMCA convention, you can meet thousands of people who enjoy the traveling lifestyle with a thirst to see and do new things all in one place. At the convention, you will have all sorts of opportunities to meet new friends.

Mark Spragg is the author An Unfinished Life, which was chosen by the Rocky Mountain News as the Best Book of 2004. He’s also written Where Rivers Change Direction, a memoir that won the 2000 Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers award, and the novels The Fruit of Stone and Bone Fire. Mark lives in Wyoming with his wife, Virginia, with whom he wrote the screenplay for the 2005 film version of “An Unfinished Life”, starring Robert Redford, Morgan Freeman, and Jennifer Lopez.
After escaping the last of a long string of abusive boyfriends, Jean Gilkyson and her ten-year-old daughter Griff have nowhere left to go. Nowhere except Ishawooa, Wyoming, where Jean's estranged father-in-law, Einar, still blames her for the death of his son. Though Einar isn't glad to see either of them, Griff falls in love with his sprawling ranch and quiet way of life, as she slowly gets to know his crippled old friend Mitch, the cats that lurk in the barn at milking time, and finally the grandfather she had lost for so many years. An emotionally charged story of hard-won friendship and reconciliation, An Unfinished Life shows a novelist of extraordinary talents in the fullness of his powers.

In “An Unfinished Life,” Einar Gilkyson (Robert Redford) quietly lives in the rugged Wyoming ranchlands alongside his only trusted friend, Mitch Bradley (Morgan Freeman).
Then, suddenly, Jean Gilkyson (Jennifer Lopez), the woman he blames for the death of his only son, arrives at his door broke, desperate, and with a granddaughter he's never known. But even as buried anger and accusations resurface, the way is opened for unexpected connection, adventure, and forgiveness.
