Lazydays, The RV Authority and world’s largest RV dealership, has once again partnered with SUN ’n FUN for the organization’s 42nd Annual International Fly-In and Expo. The six-day event takes place April 5–10 in Lakeland, FL with proceeds benefitting SUN ’n FUN’s Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE). ACE supports aviation-related science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education as well as numerous community activities.
An estimated 200,000 participants—including pilots, aviation enthusiasts, exhibitors and RVers—are expected to attend this year’s Fly-In and Expo. Featured activities include daytime and evening airshow performances, dozens of daily educational forums, workshops and presentations, aerospace displays and exhibits, and a classic car and motorcycle show. The theme of this year’s Fly-In is “Honoring Our Armed Forces.” A “Flight to Honor” carrying World War II and Korean War veterans will arrive from Washington, D.C., around 6 p.m. on April 7. Active-duty military personnel and veterans are eligible for free and/or discounted admission to the multi-day event.
As the exclusive RV sponsor of the 2016 Fly-In and Expo, Lazydays is providing several RVs to serve as hospitality stations and mobile offices for SUN ’n FUN staff during the event. The Tampa RV dealership will also have an RV display from its wide selection of RVs for sale along Rocky Road near the Convention Campground. On April 9 and 10, Lazydays representatives will host giveaways at the main entrance area from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Attendees can speak with Lazydays RV experts for more information on the Tampa dealership’s RV selection, services and repairs, accessories, and RV Resort, which is just a half-hour drive from the Fly-In.
“Lazydays is excited to be part of the International Fly-In and Expo once again,” said John Lebbad, Chief Marketing Officer for Lazydays. “We are proud to join SUN ’n FUN in honoring active-duty military personnel and veterans. This partnership is an ideal match. We look forward to connecting with the more than 200,000 attendees, including 1,500+ RVers and campers at the event.”
“We are pleased to have Lazydays join us in welcoming aviation enthusiasts to the International Fly-In and Expo, which is the largest airshow of its kind in Florida and the second largest in the world,” said Greg Gibson, Director of Operations for SUN ’n FUN. “The Fly-In always draws a large contingent of RVers who are able to get the most out of the event by camping right here on the convention grounds.
