Bowl Expo 2020 Update - COVID 19

March 25, 2020

As you know, we have been carefully monitoring COVID-19 developments both domestically and globally over the past few weeks.
As it continues to spread across the globe, BPAA hopes that you, your family, friends and colleagues are safe and well.
BPAA would like to thank each and every one of you for being patient during this difficult time.
This has affected our industry drastically and BPAA is working tirelessly to help our members through these uncharted times.

At this time, we have decided to cancel ONLY the trade show portion of Bowl Expo 2020 July 5th – 6th.
BPAA will continue to evaluate the annual meeting, networking and education portion of the show and will provide updates as necessary.

We are grateful for each and every member of our Bowl Expo community. It is your passion for the bowling industry
that makes Bowl Expo a success year after year, and it is that same passion that will drive us into the future.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Frank DeSocio, Executive Director, at 817-385-8447
or Justin Moore, Director of Meetings and Events, at 817-385-8449.

Reminder Bowl Expo does NOT have an official housing provider. Do not book your room through any company or service claiming to be an official housing provider.
Buyers Beware: Various telemarketing firms with names like Conventions Housing Bureau, CHB Reservations, TPI Convention Housing, Global Housing Services Corporation, Travelera, and National Travel Associates have been contacting Bowl Expo International attendees to solicit hotel reservations for the Expo. These companies are NOT affiliated with Bowl Expo International or its sponsoring associations. There is great risk in booking hotel rooms outside of the Bowl Expo International secured block. The only secure method of reserving rooms for the Expo is through the link provided on this page.

Attendees Say

  • It’s Electric! Being at Bowl Expo is a lot of fun, there are many innovative products out there. You get to see the next big thing before it becomes the big thing!

  • One of the best reasons I’d think to come is to visit with other bowling centers and seeing how their operations are and networking amongst one another.

    Cordova Bowling Center – Cordova, TN

  • I get a good pulse to where the industry is at and who the people are that are making those trends and taking the industry to where it’s headed.

  • I come to Bowl Expo to take a break from my business, get rejuvenated while meeting with other proprietors, and learn key things from the different educational seminars. It gets me back in the game. It gets me mentally thinking that I can do things better and I can do things differently at my center.

    Marc Mattecheck
    North Bend Lanes – North Bend, OR

  • It’s a great way to find new ideas for your bowling center. Not necessarily if your center is struggling, but even if you have a booming bowling center! Not only can you offer stuff to other people, but there’s some great ideas out there that maybe you’ve just never thought of before.
