Looking ahead into next year, tentative discussions were had and a formal date was set for the SACC inaugural outdoor expo, officially scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020, with an inclement weather date of Saturday, Feb. 22, 2020.

Potential vendor lists, booth prices and numerous event workings are already being discussed at length and more details will be forthcoming in the months ahead, but the group showed initial momentum and positive energy for the new undertaking.
