Gear Up at the 2014 Birding Optics & Gear Expo!


This upcoming FREE event in Columbus, Ohio on April 4-6, 2014 could easily be nicknamed Optics Lover's Paradise. Birders from all over the country will be, er, flocking to this expo to pick out a new binocular or scope, just in time for spring migration.

Sponsored by Bird Watcher's Digest, Eagle Optics, and Time & Optics, this second annual Birding Optics & Gear Expo is actually designed for all nature enthusiasts who rely on sport optics to enhance their favorite outdoor activities. All the major sport optics manufacturers will be there for a Try Before You Buy experience like no other! Browse around, chat with the experts, and compare binoculars, spotting scopes, tripods, and other gear. Check out this video compilation from last year's inaugural event.


The expo will feature products from Eagle Optics, Vortex, Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, Leica Sport Optics, Swarovski Optik North America, Celestron, Minox, Vanguard, Kowa, Celestron, Manfrotto, Clintonville Outfitters, and Midwest Photo Exchange.

This free event will be held at The Grange Insurance Audubon Center, just south of downtown Columbus, Ohio. Hours have been expanded this year due to an overwhelming response in 2013: visit on Saturday, April 4 (from 5:00 to 8:00 pm); Saturday, April 5 (from 9:00 to 5:00 pm), or Sunday, April 6 (10:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm). Click here to register, get e-mail updates, and to be entered in the Expo Door Prize Giveaway. You can also register by calling 800-879-2473.

What a unique opportunity to get your hands on all the latest in sport optics. Before you plunk down your money for a new scope or binocular, try it out first at the Birding Optics & Gear Expo! Sound like fun? Then, make your way to central Ohio. We'll see you there April 4-6!

  2. Hi Robert,
    This was the second annual event --it takes place only in Columbus, Ohio.. Plans are already underway for the 3rd annual, next March! If you're a subscriber to Bird Watcher's Digest, you'll see reminders as the date approaches. I also promote it on the Eagle Optics Facebook page.
    All the best,
