Safari Club International Returns to Reno Tahoe

The Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority (RSCVA), along with the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA), today announced the return of the Safari Club International (SCI) Annual Hunters’ Convention.

“It is my privilege to announce that Safari Club International is coming back home to Reno Tahoe,” said RSCVA Board Chair Bob Lucey. “It was always our hope that SCI would someday return, and through the work of the RSCVA and our partners, and with the generous support of SCI leadership, that day is coming soon.”

Safari Club International has agreed to bring its annual convention to the Reno-Sparks Convention Center (RSCC) for three years, beginning in 2019. Reno has been home to 20 previous gatherings of the conservation organization, including 10 of the 11 years from 2003 to 2013. The convention brings 20,000 attendees from 103 countries, utilizing the entirety of the 500,000 sq. ft. RSCC. Most of the region’s major hotels will be home for attendees during the four-day event, and today SCI CEO Phil DeLone praised the region’s hospitality professionals for their continued interest and support.
