Thank you to everybody that was a part of arranging the evening and also everyone that made an effort to be there, just too many to mention!

I wish it would last longer as it is hard to meet everyone but it still is one of the highlights on my yearly marketing calender.

Always good to see old friends that has hunted with me and meeting new ones as well! Always a lot of fun!

Looking forward to next year!

Thanks to all. Karol and I had a great time at the show and the dinner.
Met many of you while walking the show with my AH hat on. Met more at the dinner, but still feel like we have only met a small percentage of those in attendance.
We are very great full to be a part of such a great community.

Got this convention wrap-up email from DSC today. Looks like attendance was up 30% if I read this correct.

DSC Mogambo Convention Success

DSC Convention Levels Up, Sets More Records
2019 Show A Big Success for Visitors, Volunteers, Exhibitors
The DSC Convention, Mogambo: Dagga Boy Danger, held in Dallas in mid-January at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, saw a healthy increase in day traffic and brisk business for most exhibitors. The Greatest Hunters’ Convention on the Planet™ is one of Dallas’ largest, occupying 800,000 square feet of exhibit space for four days.

Though not required to attend the show, DSC memberships are now at a steady 6,352. More than 700 memberships were processed at the show, from people who believe in the DSC mission and want to step up and show support. The auctions and raffles raised more than $3 million. Once the 2019 grants are reviewed and approved, DSC will likely approve nearly $2 million to a variety of programs and projects that advance its mission of conservation, education, and advocacy.

Convention Chairs Charlie and Winona Barnes said, “What happened here at Mogambo wasn't about what we did, but rather what that formidable team called the DSC 100 did. We are grateful to be a part of it. There were so many special stories about volunteers going above and beyond, of staff doing the impossible, of the hotel and convention center taking care of our fantastic guests and exhibitors. All we can say is a huge thank you for this opportunity.”

DSC President Karl Evans said, “I shouldn’t be surprised, but this year’s Convention was another example of what a dedicated and passionate group of volunteers, exhibitors and corporate sponsors can accomplish together. I am both humbled and proud to be part of this organization that does so much to serve and advance the hunting industry.”

In addition to the exhibit hall activity, a number of important meetings with industry and government officials took place, among them the inaugural meeting of the DSC Conservation Advisory Board (CAB). This new group is charged with the mission of providing subject matter expertise with both regional and global perspectives on needed research, program development and advocacy. The CAB will advise and assist the DSC Board and Grants Committee on domestic and international conservation issues to ensure that DSC’s mission fulfillment is focused most appropriately.

DSC Executive Directory Corey Mason said, “When we say the world comes to Dallas, it’s true. We’ve had officials and notable conservationists from around the world sit down to discuss important matters and to cooperate on developing policies that conserve wildlife worldwide.”

Mason continued, “DSC is well underway with planning the 2020 show. The theme is Heritage, and we will improve and upgrade all the success we created at Mogambo. We cannot wait to invite the hunting world again to Dallas.”

Well isn't that interesting.

Keep me honest please, I recall that SCI has attendence of 15k, which was down from 20k a year prior. So DSC way up, and SCI way down. And DSC with over 2x attendence compared to SCI.

You always hear that SCI charges so much to get rid of the tire kickers and that the outfitters want it that way. I have a feeling we may find out next year if this is true .

I know there was a bunch of grumbling about SCI from the outfitters this year with threats to leave and never come back. Threats like that are often idle. These numbers sure make it easier to consider making that threat real though .

DSC is earlier next year, Jan 9-12, 2020 and SCI is later, Jan 15-18, 2020, still in Reno. Pretty quick turnaround for all the exhibitors.

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
