San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo CEO and Executive Director, Cody Davenport will be joining episode 2 of The Long Haul. The thought has always bounced around my mind of how do you produce a major rodeo like San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. Thousands of exhibitors, competitors and spectators pass through the grounds each year. It must not be an easy feat of putting on a production of this size.
In this episode, Cody Davenport will provide us an inside view of the ins and out of their production.
Cody Davenport started his journey with the stock show and rodeo in 1993 by volunteering. This transitioned into greater leadership roles where he helped start the Bar-B-Q Cook-Off event. Following the event, he became the executive committee president in 2015. After that, he had the opportunity to step up and become the CEO in 2018. His time serving has shown great dedication and a passion for the industry.
Questions like these will be answered:
- How much time and planning goes into each year?
- How much of a role do you play in the details and decisions of the production?
- What is the mission of San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo and how is that carried out each year?
