The 2016 DSC Convention returns to Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center and Omni Hotel Dallas Jan. 7-10 in Downtown Dallas. This year’s theme is Conservation. To accommodate the increasing media interest in the event, DSC is making it easier for the world’s sporting press to attend and cover the annual convention with a revamped pressroom and easy pre-registration process.
“Last year’s convention set a new attendance records for both visitors and press. We’re expecting even more in 2016, so we’re urging writers and broadcasters to pre-register so they can cover the best in sporting adventures, lifestyles and conservation,” said DSC Executive Director Ben Carter.
Pressroom hours and show hours will be the same for the 2016 DSC Convention: 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday; and 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday.
The family-friendly 2016 DSC expo is open to the public and will fill a record 800,000 square feet. More than 1,000 exhibitors and 1,800 different booths will feature outfitted hunts, guns, gear and much more.
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 six years, the event has generated more than $6.7 million for conservation, education and hunter advocacy initiatives around the world.
In 2015 alone, DSC raised more than $1.4 million for conservation causes worldwide – plus another $1 million specifically for youth education.
