Lodestone Events, which puts on Overland Expo, has turned Overland Expo West into the first-ever virtual event. The event will take place on May 16th, and it will preview education, short films, roundtables, and an exhibitor show for the in-person event that will happen on July 24 to 26 in Flagstaff, Arizona.

“The overlanding community has been incredibly understanding and supportive of our decision to reschedule Overland Expo West due to the novel coronavirus pandemic,” said Lodestone Events Marketing and Communications VP Jessica Kirchner. “We wanted to bring the community together on Expo West’s traditional event weekend and create an environment where fans and sponsors can learn, interact and get inspired, even if we can’t all be together.”
Here’s a list of the things the virtual event will include, according to the press release:
