Well, its almost time! The Dauphin County Commissioners, the Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC, and the Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Bureau will announce tomorrow who will be the new Event Producer.
They have changed the name of the show to The Harrisburg Sports & Outdoors Show, and will carry forward with that name instead of the Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show.
Since we had organized the boycott of the ESOS and REED chose to shut down the 2013 ESOS, the Harrisburg Officials have banned REED Exhibitions from participating in the process of finding a new promoter.
Harrisburg Officials say that the Boycott and the cancellation of the ESOS has cost the Harrisburg area more than $88 Million in lost revenue to the area.
We are looking forward to see who the new promoter is, and hope we can work with them to breathe new life to the newly created show, and bring back a piece of heritage PA missed out on this year.
Stay tuned tomorrow for the announcement !
