– NATIONAL TINY HOUSE JAMBOREE –
ANNOUNCING PARTNERSHIP WITH REED EXHIBITIONS!
NEW DATE: OCTOBER 27-29, 2017
NEW VENUE: ARLINGTON CONVENTION CENTER | ARLINGTON, TX
Tiny Housers – you’ve shocked us with your enthusiasm for two years! Because of this amazing community, we are dedicated to continuing this flagship event with excellence. Last year alone, over 60,000 tiny house fans descended upon the US Air Force Academy. This amazing and unforeseen attendance was overwhelming. We realized that continued exponential growth was quickly becoming something we were not fully equipped to handle. For this reason, and to ensure an amazing and professional experience for all attendees, we determined that a change was crucial.
NEW PARTNERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT!
The National Tiny House Jamboree (“THJ”) is extremely pleased to announce a partnership with Reed Exhibitions (“Reed”), the world’s leading events organizer. With a wide range of events including New York Comic Con, Reed brings an international level of experience and professionalism that is unparalleled in the events industry. This is exactly what THJ needed! http://www.reedexpo.com/
NEW VENUE & DATE
Due to this new partnership, venue growth requirements, and the major transition it all requires, THJ and Reed agreed the 2017 Jamboree must be postponed & relocated. The event will now be held:
October 27 – 29, 2017 (Friday – Sunday)
Arlington Convention Center | Arlington, T
We are so grateful to be moving the Jamboree to such a progressive and supporting community such as Arlington TX and the surrounding area. Texas has proven to be a hotspot for the Tiny House movement with exponential growth and interest. Arlington has the resources to handle this expanding event. The city boasts a surplus of options for hotels, food, air travel, and transportation, not to mention its exceptional convention center.
We also plan to greatly increase content, including the educational component of the event for both the general public and professional community. The convention center has meeting rooms with full audio-visual set ups, comfortable seating, and climate control essential to providing important workshops, panels, and speakers. This interior exhibit space will make the festival a more family friendly, diverse event. It’s a perfect fit!
WHAT ELSE IS NEW THIS YEAR?
The Jamboree is already regarded as THE event of the Tiny House Movement and its emerging industry. Partnering with Reed now allows us to do EVEN MORE!
Thought leaders from around the world will be presenting with a focus on DIYers, professional-builders, developers, and government officials. We are also adding additional programming around all types of simple, smart and sustainable living solutions. For the 2017 event, education programming and content will be managed by B.A. Norrgard, a well-known tiny house advocate and educator, blogger of “A Bed Over My Head”, and a founding member of the “Tiny House Collaborative.”
DIYers will now be featured as well as professional models. Since this movement is so diverse, we are also expanding into other alternative housing solutions that will be available for viewing.
Vendors will be expanded across many new categories, all centered around the entire paradigm shift of the simple lifestyle. Regional, national, and international companies will be represented.
WE ARE REALLY EXCITED!
We wanted to bring a world-class experience while keeping the spirit of the grass roots movement, and supporting the continued growth of the emerging industry. This allows the little THJ team to do just that. We are enthusiastic about the changes and embrace them with open arms. We sincerely hope you are excited as well!
