RMEF, ISE to Team for Stronger Expos, Elk Camps

MISSOULA, Mont.–For 35 years, no company has produced better consumer sportsman shows than International Sportsmen’s Expositions (ISE). Annual events in Denver, Phoenix, Sacramento, Salt Lake City and San Mateo, Calif., draw hundreds of thousands of hunters, anglers and conservationists.

Today the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation announced an expanded partnership with ISE.

For 2010, RMEF and ISE introduced the Ultimate Elk Hunter’s Raffle. Joint marketing efforts to promote RMEF and ISE included the RMEF Great Elk Tour, and RMEF sponsorship of ISE’s Adventure Theater, and Best of the West Elk Calling Contests.

In 2012, ISE will manage the sales, marketing and promotion of the exposition component of RMEF’s annual national convention, called Elk Camp.

RMEF will continue to manage its own auctions, fundraisers, banquets and ceremonies in conjunction with the ISE-managed expo portion of Elk Camp.

“We expect this new partnership to boost our visibility across the West and ignite significant growth in our own convention, which ultimately means additional funding for our mission,” said Steve Decker, vice president of marketing for RMEF.

ISE President and CEO Brian Layng said, “We look forward to co-locating with RMEF and providing its members, exhibitors, corporate sponsors and the public with the best wildlife and outdoor exposition in North America.”
