MEMPHIS, Tenn. – This weekend, people in the mid south who want to learn survival skills, or try out products before they purchase them, will get their chance at the West Tennessee Survival Expo.
Held in the suburbs of Memphis at the Agricenter International in Germantown, Tenn., as many as 2,500 preppers are expected to attend the expo. But it’s a not all about preparing for an “end of the world as we know it” event.
“It’s not all products for surviving in the bush without electricity, although that is an important component of the show,” said Rex Kehrli, RK Prepper Shows CEO. “Many people define preparedness as simply redirecting parts of their lives to a more natural, self-sufficient way of living. The products, presentations, and demonstrations are about more than surviving an emergency. Attendees will learn natural, do-it-yourself living skills and the opportunity to try out the products they want to buy.”
Attendees of the West Tennessee Survival Expo can try and buy tactical and outdoors gear, essential oils, heirloom seeds, homesteading equipment, emergency food and medical supplies, and more.
The expo also features more than a dozen speakers discussing, and demonstrating, topics, such as survival medicine, essential oils, disaster preparedness, bush craft, emergency clothing, self-defense, and emergency food preparation and storage.
The expo takes place at the Agricenter International in Germantown, in the Memphis suburbs.
The Expo opens Saturday, Feb. 25 at 9 a.m. till 5 p.m., and again, Sunday, Feb. 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Adult one-day tickets cost $12, and $5 for children.
