Located in both the Convention Center and the Pavilion at the Radisson Resort at the Port, Cape Canaveral, there will be more than 90 exhibits geared towards the birding, wildlife and nature enthusiast. Exhibits include destination tour companies, wildlife and birding organizations, nature-based businesses, artists, book sellers, photography, and an outstanding representation of camera and optic equipment. In addition, Swarovski Optik will be offering to clean and inspect your optics equipment, regardless of brand, so take advantage of that wonderful offer!
Field trips and presentations are purposefully scheduled so there is ample time to get back to the hotel and visit the Expo Center on numerous occasions. Sips N Bits receptions will be scheduled late afternoon Wednesday – Saturday. There’s a restaurant in the lobby for breakfast and lunch, a poolside bar for burgers and hotdogs (weather permitting) and several restaurants literally less than five minutes away with a quick wall across the hotel parking lot. The Expo Center is also the location of the Silent Auction which raises funds for our Giving Back to Conservation initiative. At the Rookery located in the Convention Center registration area check out the Swarovski Optik raffle and buy one of the very limited number of tickets for a chance to win their latest product!
Say hello and thank you to our sponsors, purchase optics from Time and Optics or a camera from Hunt’s Photo and Video. Stop by Swarovski and Wildside Nature Tours and thank them for their generous support of the festival. Say hello and thank you to our other sponsors. We have Time and Optics, Ltd as the exclusive seller of optics and Hunt’s Photo and Video as the official seller of cameras. Last, but not least, check out the bird checklist board to find out what everyone is seeing!
The vendors have gone to a lot of time and effort to be there, lets show them our appreciation by visiting them often! Sponsors are listed in bold with an asterisk*.
URGENT: Beware of an outside company contacting you to sell attendee lists. This is a scam! The Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival is NOT associated with this company and does NOT endorse them. Please let us know if you receive any emails of this nature. Thank you!
The Radisson Resort at the Port, Cape Canaveral is conveniently located next to numerous eating establishments, several of which are a walk across the hotel parking lot. There are the normal fast-food restaurants, sub shops, pizza, pub food, Thai food, you won’t have to go far! At the hotel itself there is a restaurant in the lobby that serves breakfast and lunch, and a poolside bar that serves hot dogs and hamburgers, etc. weather permitting.
Details are being worked out to make sure we can have the early birders get breakfast or snack sacks before they head out for the day prior to regular restaurant hours, details will be updated as they become available.
We will host our late afternoon receptions with light hors d’oeuvres Wednesday through Saturday at the Expo Center. Be sure to take the time to stroll through the two Expo Center locations and see the incredible variety of exhibitors and their products. After the keynote speaker we encourage you to discover the variety of fantastic food options available in Cape Canaveral, perhaps try out one of the amazing restaurants in the port. Stop by the Chamber of Commerce booth in the Expo Center for suggestions.
