Located in both the Convention Center and the Pavilion at the Radisson Resort at the Port, Cape Canaveral, there will be more than 50 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. 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!

Purchase optics from our exclusive seller of optics, Time and Optics, Ltd., or check out a camera from our newest vender B&H Photo Video or longtime festival exhibitor Hunt’s Photo & Video. Stop by Swarovski and Wildside Nature Tours and thank them for their generous support of the festival as a Manatee level Sponsor, our highest sponsorship level.
