Why is the GNOE in Idaho?

We believe the Northwest is home to not only some of the most stunning outdoors, but also to some of the most passionate outdoor enthusiasts around. Yet despite the great setting, the Northwest region has yet to see this type of expo. That all changes this summer.

This event is hosted by Ducks Unlimited, the world’s leader in wetland and waterfowl conservation for over 80 years now. The organization relies heavily on volunteers; work is done on the backs of hard-working outdoor enthusiasts. Its members are conservationists and outdoor enthusiasts who live primarily throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Additional conservation groups will be on hand to educate visitors and shine the spotlight on smart environmental practices, and the prolific outdoor adventure opportunities right here in the Great Northwest.

Mond Warren, Ducks Unlimited Regional Director for the State of Idaho, had a vision to host this event in Idaho as a way to inform and educate people on the outdoors. “The northwest is one of the world’s best places for recreationists and outdoor enthusiasts to still experience nature in all of its magnificence,” says Warren. “We were driven to create an outdoor expo that does its best to duplicate that experience and provide vendors and visitors the ultimate opportunity to share their passion for the outdoors.”

Businesses interested in sponsorships and exhibitor booths are encouraged to learn more about the great opportunities available.  Please contact Mond Warren or Drew Allen (Idaho State Publicity Chairman) for additional information.
