Organizers report that booth space for the 5th Beijing International RV and Camping Show, to be held Aug. 9-12 in Beijing RV Expo, is nearly sold out. The 3rd China RVing & Camping Rally will run in conjunction with the RV show.

Wang Jidong, general manager of the show, said in a press release that about 400 RVs and outdoor equipment such as ATVs, UTVs, motor boats, yachts and small helicopters will be on display. “This year’s show will be bigger and the service to both exhibitors and visitors will be better,” Jidong said, noting that more than 100 RVs were sold at last year’s show with sales volume was higher than $100 million.

Themed the ‘Lead the New Life of Fashion, promoters are expecting around 300 RVers to attend the camping rally. The events are hosted by the Beijing Tourism Development Commission, People’s Government of Beijing Fangshan District and the China RV and Camping Association.
