The Virginia Outdoor Sportsman Show was puchased by Royal Productions in September 2016 from the show's founder Hugh Crittenden. We made many changes in 2017 including quadrupling the advertising budget, hosting the NWTF State Turkey Calling Contest, adding seminars, and bringing in celebrity speakers, and tons of new exhibitors. We had fantastic show with the best attendance in years!
The show was advertised throughout the state on 8 TV stations, 9 radio stations, numerous newspapers, digital outlets, social media, as well as industry publications, newsletters, emails, etc.
About Royal Productions:
The Virginia Outdoor Sportsman Show is produced by Virginia-based Royal Productions, Inc., a leader in consumer show production for over 40 years. Under the guidance of President David Posner, Royal Productions grew to be one of the largest consumer show producers in the region. Annual events have included home and garden, boat, RV, and golf shows.
In 2005 all of Royal Productions’ shows were sold to California-based Affinity Group, Inc. (now doing business as Good Sam Enterprises). In June 2012 Royal Productions purchased the Richmond Home Show, Virginia Home Show, and the Richmond Home and Garden Show back from GS Media. In August 2016 we then sold the shows again.
Over the years hundreds of thousands of consumers have attended Royal Productions’ events. Royal earned the trust and loyalty of nearly 1000 exhibiting companies. For many of these companies participating in a Royal event represented a large percentage of their annual advertising budgets. The support for years, even decades, by many of these companies is a testament to the hard work, commitment and value Royal shows always delivered.
