American Birding Expo 2016

Birding Products Showcase to be held in Columbus, Ohio

Birders interested in a hands-on experience with the latest binoculars, spotting scopes and cameras will have the opportunity to do so at the second annual American Birding Expo. This year's event will be held September 16-18 in Columbus, Ohio.

The American Birding Expo is a retail-sales-oriented showcase of products for birders and nature enthusiasts. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit with optics companies, tour companies and representatives from some of the major birding destinations from around the world.

The Expo is the largest and most diverse shopping experience available to bird watchers in North America.
 
The Event is free and open to the public. Attendees who register in advance will receive these special benefits.

• Fast pass registration onsite
• A free subscription to the Expo newsletter with the latest updates and discount leaks
• A collectible Expo gift bag
• Exclusive invitations to behind-the-scenes events
• Be the first to know when information is released

A portion of the proceeds from the Expo will be earmarked for three distinct conservation projects at the local, national, and international level.

The even is patterned after the British Bird Fair, which attracts about 20,000 birders a year to the small village of Egleton, Rutland Water in England. The British Birdfair takes place August 19-21.
