HSCF 2021 Convention Still Moving Forward


Houston, TX – Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF) is continuing to plan for its 2021 Convention. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and international travel bans, the 2021 Convention has been moved to February 26-28, 2021, in Hall A3, at the George R Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.

“We are very disheartened to see our conservation partners and peer organizations being forced to cancel or modify their annual conventions. When an organization is unable to pair outfitters and manufacturers with the public and raise funds for wildlife, habitat and education programs which promote the future of hunting and conservation, no one wins. HSCF continues to work through the daily and everchanging conditions of planning for our annual convention. Our focus is on the safety and well-being of attendees and exhibitors alike. We greatly look forward to joining together with all of our friends, in a safe manner, to celebrate hunting and the outdoors!” states Joe Betar, HSCF Executive Director.

In coordination with state, local and venue authorities and their respective guidelines, protocols have been established to assist in the safe gathering of HSCF convention attendees and exhibitors. At this time, temperature checks, self-assessments and masks will be required for all Expo attendees. Banquets will be modified to allow for reduced seating at each table and adjusted spacing between tables. Ongoing updates will be posted to the HSCF website at hscfdn.org/convention/attendees/ and hscfdn.org/convention/exhibitor-info/.

The 2021 HSCF Convention, themed as CONNECTIONS! is a three-day experience featuring hunting and fishing outfitters, hunting gear, clothing, firearms, artwork, jewelry and more from around the world! Meet with outfitters! Purchase HSCF gear! Become a member of HSCF! Purchase a chance to win great prizes in our Big Expo Raffle! The banquets and auctions are fun-filled events offering opportunities to meet and greet fellow hunters and take home incredible auction items. The ladies take charge on Friday as they present the Gazelles Luncheon, a lively event for gals and guys alike! Friday evening festivities include a live auction, games and more. The weekend of fun culminates at our Saturday evening gala featuring a grand live auction and much more.

A few booth spaces are still available for Exhibitors. More information and booth applications may be found at hscfdn.org/convention/exhibitor-info/ or by contacting Nancy Oka CMP, CPCE, Director of Events & Membership at 832.804.8959 or nancy@wehuntwegive.org.
