DALLAS --(Ammoland.com)- In a fast four-day run, Dallas Safari Club (DSC) raised more than $1 million earmarked for conservation causes worldwide – plus another $350,000 specifically for black rhinos in Namibia – in January.

Now DSC is ramping up for the 2015 edition of its annual convention and expo. Organizers say event registrations and hotel reservations are moving ahead of last year’s record pace.

The event is Jan. 15-18 2015 in downtown Dallas at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center and Omni Hotel Dallas.

“We had 43,000 people in 2014 – the biggest event in our 34-year history,” said DSC Executive Director Ben Carter. “But we’re thinking even bigger for 2015, because all of the attendance predictors, including advance sales of registrations and room blocks, are up from this time last year.”

The prestigious Weatherby Award again will be presented in conjunction with the DSC event, on Jan. 14 in Dallas.

Over the next four days, convention registrants can look forward to presentations of the esteemed Conklin and Capstick awards, gala banquets, auctions, entertainment and more.

The public-welcome, family-friendly DSC expo will fill a record 800,000 square feet. Over 1,000 exhibitors will feature outfitted hunts, guns, gear and much more. Live seminars, the American Custom Gunmakers Guild exposition, Wingshooter’s World section hosted by Quail Coalition, plus food and attractions, are among the highlights.

The DSC convention and expo is one of the biggest fundraising events in Texas. In the Dallas region it trails only the HP Byron Nelson Golf Championship, according to the Dallas Business Journal. The event generates funding for DSC conservation, education and hunter advocacy initiatives around the world.

Sponsors include Sports Afield, Midway USA, Shikar Safaris, Trijicon, EuroOptic, Boyt Harness Co., Yamaha Motor Corp. USA, Hornady, The Hunting Consortium, Bass Pro Shops, Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, The Wildlife Gallery, Capital Farm Credit, Rungwa Game Safaris, Blaser USA, Legendary Consortium, Sovereign Bank, Shoppas Golf Cars, David R. Oakes CIMA, Ruger, Capt. Peacock Yachts and Expeditions, and many others.
