2014 Snowbird Fest Exhibitor Pre-Registration

Feb.1, 2014
9 a.m. to 1 p.m.*
The Hall at St.John's
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

The 2014 Snowbird Fest Jan.11, in Orange Beach, AL was the most productive to date, and 2014's East Coast Festival in South Carolina promises to be even more successful. As the event grows, exhibitor space becomes more limited, requiring The Snowbird Company to restrict the number of booths available. The Snowbird Company is currently accepting pre-registration forms for both title sponsorships and vendor booth registrations.

2014 Planning & Snowbird Data

  • 2013 & 2014 expos were attended by more than 2,000 snowbirds
       
  • 95 percent said they will return to vacation in the same area next year!
       
  • 98 percent will be in the area in January. The Snowbird Fest is strategically planned for early January and February, to give exhibitors maximum ROI on their participation.
       
  • More than 40 percent plan to vacation in the same area, for more than three months in next year. Marketing to them in in early January, or early February, provides optimal income opportunities.
       
  • Most snowbirds will choose their accommodations for the subsequent year while they are enjoying their current winter vacation. Snowbird Fest offers the prime opportunity for rental management companies to market to a captive audience.

Advertise

The annual Snowbird Fest is produced by The Snowbird Company, the largest conglomeration of rent-by-owner websites targeting winter travelers. Marketing opportunities include online, print and event advertising.  These advertising opportunities facilitate your need to fill vacation rental properties during the off season. 

Why Market to Snowbirds?

Winter travelers occupy your vacation rental properties during the off season, ensuring rental income is generated not only during the summer season, but during winter as well. Our research shows the following:

    Nearly half of all snowbirds will vacation for three months, generating long-term winter income for property owners.

    Ninety-eight percent of snowbirds will vacation during January with 92% still vacationing in February and 58% extending their trips through March. Thirty percent begin their travels in December.

    Property Managers: More than 30% of last year's snowbirds told us they are spending between $1200 to $1,499 on rent per month, with nearly 20% of snowbirds spending over $1,500 a month.

    Almost 50% of winter travelers found their rental on rent-by-owner sites, like AlabamaSnowbird.com, AmericanSnowbird.com & others.
