The vendors have gone to a lot of time and effort to be there, lets show them our appreciation by visiting them often!

Located in both the Convention Center and the Pavilion at the Radisson Resort at the Port, Cape Canaveral, there will be more than 90 exhibits geared towards the birding, wildlife and nature enthusiast. Exhibits include destination tour companies, wildlife and birding organizations, nature-based businesses, artists, book sellers, photography, and an outstanding representation of camera and optic equipment. In addition, Swarovski Optik will be offering to clean and inspect your optics equipment, regardless of brand, so take advantage of that wonderful offer!

Field trips and presentations are purposefully scheduled so there is ample time to get back to the hotel and visit the Expo Center on numerous occasions. Sips N Bits receptions will be scheduled late afternoon Wednesday – Saturday. There’s a restaurant in the lobby for breakfast and lunch, a poolside bar for burgers and hotdogs (weather permitting) and several restaurants literally less than five minutes away with a quick walk across the hotel parking lot. The Expo Center is also the location of the Silent Auction which raises funds for our Giving Back to Conservation initiative. At the Rookery located in the Convention Center registration area check out the Swarovski Optik raffle and buy one of the very limited number of tickets for a chance to win their latest product!

Say hello and thank you to our sponsors, purchase optics from Time and Optics or a camera from Hunt’s Photo and Video. Stop by Swarovski and Wildside Nature Tours and thank them for their generous support of the festival. Say hello and thank you to our other sponsors. We have Time and Optics, Ltd as the exclusive seller of optics and Hunt’s Photo and Video as the official seller of cameras. Last, but not least, check out the bird checklist board to find out what everyone is seeing!
