Inaugural hands-on sport show will be held at Fort Worth’s Texas Motor Speedway
MEMPHIS, Tennessee – Jan. 23, 2019 – Ducks Unlimited, the world leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation, has partnered with Texas Motor Speedway, one of the largest venues in Texas, to host the inaugural Ducks Unlimited Expo (DUX), April 17-19, 2020.
“DUX is a three-day, family-friendly, hands-on consumer show consisting of 13 interactive villages where you can see, try and buy the latest in outdoor products, talk with industry experts and experience everything in the great outdoors,” said Dana Barton, Ducks Unlimited director of national events. “The Ducks Unlimited Expo will also feature exhibitions, educational seminars and demonstrations. It’s the ultimate playground for all outdoor enthusiasts.”
DUX and Texas Motor Speedway make the perfect pair.
“Sometimes a partnership just makes sense, and given the crossover in supporters here, this is certainly one of those times,” Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. “The 1,500 acres at Texas Motor Speedway make for an ideal location for Ducks Unlimited to host this massive, first-of-its-kind event, giving them space to really showcase all the things that make them special. When we say ‘No Limits, Texas,’ we want our fans to know that means in all aspects of business, and we can’t wait to continue sharing their message of conservation with our combined fanbases.”
DUX Villages include archery, biking, camping, conservation, dogs, exhibitors, fishing/boating, golf, land management, 4×4/off road track, shooting, ranching and a UTV track. Exhibitors will cover the entire spectrum of outdoor sports from deer, duck and turkey hunting to fishing, boating, off-roading and even land management for wildlife production. Plans also include a wide variety of food and entertainment options throughout the three-day event.
“With more than 78,000 DU members and 10,000 DU volunteers across Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, Ducks Unlimited and the Texas Motor Speedway have a unique position to leverage a wide variety of contacts to energize and support this event,” Said Ducks Unlimited President Rogers Hoyt Jr. “This new, one-of-a-kind outdoor expo will offer something for every type of outdoor enthusiast in a fun, family-friendly setting and I’m proud we are hosting the inaugural event in my home state of Texas.”
