The 2015 Great American Outdoor Show—sponsored by the National Rifle Association and taking place Feb. 7–15 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Penn.—will debut interactive events and competitions in addition to its 1,000-plus hunting, fishing and outdoor sports exhibitors.

Among the newest features is the Family Fun Zone, a kid-friendly area that will be open every day with camouflage painting, magnetic fishing, barrel racing and more.

“This year’s events are a great opportunity for the entire family to test their outdoor sports skills in a fun environment,” says Jeff Poole, NRA shows & exhibits managing director. “Between the show’s events, seminars, the NRA Foundation Banquet and the NRA Country Concert with Lee Brice and Thompson Square, there’s so much to do at the Great American Outdoor Show.”

Other events taking place include game calling contests and a 3-D Bowhunter Challenge. There will be more than 200 seminars and demonstrations hosted by some of the country’s top experts on hunting, fishing and more.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
