CARAVAN SALON, the world’s largest international trade fair for motorhomes and towables, will take place from Aug. 31 to Sept. 8 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“Once again the Düsseldorf exhibition center will become the prime meeting place for all caravanning enthusiasts for 10 days,” stated CARAVAN SALON Director Stefan Koschke. “More than 600 exhibitors will present a wealth of international premieres and innovations on 2.3 million square feet of exhibition space. Here, the industry can look into the future of mobile travel through studies and the presentation of sensational prototypes. CARAVAN SALON is the highlight of the year for both visitors and exhibitors alike.”
The trade fair will feature more than 130 towable and motorhome brands with over 2,100 recreational vehicles, ranging from mini trailers with a sleeping areas and cooking facilities for lower budgets to luxury homes “on wheels”.
Proven layouts and vehicle classics will be on display as well as the brand new models for the 2020 season, which will be presented for the first time at CARAVAN SALON. In addition, visitors will also find accessories, attachments, tents, awnings, mobile homes, vacation destinations as well as campsites and RV parks in 13 halls and the outdoor exhibit space.
“We have developed a great trade fair concept in recent years and attach particular importance to the high quality of the products and services that we will continue to develop together with our partner, the Caravaning Industry Association” noted Koschke. “As the leading trade fair in its industry, CARAVAN SALON aims to help shape changes in this sector and initiate new developments.”
The “StarterWelt,” which was introduced several years ago to provide newcomers and new visitors with information about RV vacations and vehicle technology, will again be part of the show this year. New in 2019 will be “Caravaning Sports”. This special show will focus on vehicles that are particularly well suited for combining sports activities with vacations on four-wheels.
Koschke explained, “In this special show we will demonstrate the perfect synergy between caravanning, sports and leisure. After all, it is the freedom, independence, spontaneity and the spirit of adventure that make an RV vacation with sports activities so fascinating. Motorhomes and caravans are ideal “carriers” for a wide variety of sports gear – be it for water sports, cycling, hiking, skiing, golfing, horseback riding or other fun and action-packed hobbies.”
As in the past, TourNatur, the trade fair for hiking and trekking, will again be held parallel with CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF on the second weekend. In hall 6, hiking enthusiasts will get information on hiking destinations and the latest hiking and trekking equipment. In addition to over 5,000 travel destinations, the exhibitors will offer the latest hiking gear as well as expert advice for hiking, trekking and nature experiences.
