Combining a unique mix of innovative exhibitors, qualified buyers, strategic business seminars, professional pool play, recognition for the game's greatest players and a little fun, the Billiard Congress of America (BCA) is pleased to announce an exciting line up that is "far from conventional."

With more than 20 hours of open floor time and 200,000+ square feet of exhibit space in the Charlotte Convention Center, hundreds of exhibitors will be on hand with product displays ranging from the "classics, " such as billiard tables, cues, cases, cloth, slate, balls, chalk, racks, stands, lighting, instructional products, publications, accessories and league systems, to complementary lines like furniture, bars, darts, room décor, poker supplies, game tables, video games, music systems, tanning beds, spas, apparel and novelty items.

As CEO of Petty Enterprises, Petty remains a fixture at his family-owned business. Petty has been able to productively use his family business, and take advantage of his incredible driving talents and people skills, to build a winning driving resume and rebuild a racing business that has been one of the most successful in the history of motorsports. A proven winner, Petty stays focused and determined to keep Petty Enterprises at the forefront of the motorsports world.

In addition, the Business of Billiards Seminar Series will feature business improvement sessions specifically for retailers and poolroom operators, and general sessions for all attendees. Topics will include retail merchandising strategies, poolroom design tactics, Internet marketing strategies, and charity and promotions tips. The results of the BCA consumer research project also will be presented.

The BCA is also turning to laughs for this year's industry celebration. Comedian Jake Johannsen will provide a great night of entertainment during the Expo. Johannsen is one of David Letterman's favorite comics, as he has appeared on Letterman's show over 29 times. Johannsen's bizarre take on life and his uniquely intelligent style have made him a regular at comedy clubs all over the country. Scheduled for Friday evening, Johannsen will provide a fun-filled night at the Expo.
