Caravan Salon Düsseldorf 2018 will feature over 600 international exhibitors and more than 2,100 recreation vehicles, including 130 towable and motorhome brands, covering 2.3 million square feet of exhibit space in 13 halls. The event will take place Aug. 25 through Sept. 2 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“We are again very pleased with the excellent response from our exhibitors from the entire world and the fantastic booking status of our exhibition area,” said Director Stefan Koschke in a press release. “More and more our trade fair is turning into an international industry hotspot. Caravan Salon is becoming a meeting point for high-ranking delegations from Australia, Asia, the U.S., and of course Europe, who come to do business in an exclusive atmosphere and a professional environment.”
He added that Caravan Salon has reinforced its position as a leading international trade fair thanks to the record results achieved in the previous year. “This Düsseldorf trade fair is and remains the trend barometer of the industry. We are looking forward to this year’s event with optimism and anticipation,” said Koschke of the event that has drawn increased participation from U.S. manufacturers and suppliers.
All international manufacturers will be presenting the latest generation of motorhomes and caravans at this year’s Caravan Salon. “Nowhere else can one see such a variety and selection of products than in Düsseldorf. Every caravanning fan will find a suitable vehicle here,” says Daniel Onggowinarso, managing director of the German Caravanning Industry Association (CIVD).
The event will also feature several technical innovations, including electronic tools that facilitate ease of use of the vehicles and increase their comfort levels. “In order to keep the vehicles agile despite the added equipment, manufacturers are developing more lightweight designs,” says Onggowinarso.
In recent years, the “Technology Order” area has enjoyed great popularity among exhibitors and visitors with technical equipment, components and installations, so that a second technology hall was opened for the first time in 2017. In order to shorten the distances and optimize the division once again, the second “Technology Hall” – supplemented by exhibitors of tents, tent trailers and folding caravans – will be placed in Hall 14.
The luxury motorhome segment will move to Hall 5 while Hall 7a will house the “Accessories Paradise” with direct sales of caravan and camping accessories. At the North entrance of Hall 7, visitors will find the tourism offers, including camping and motorhome lots, as well as travel destinations. Caravans, motorhomes, and van conversions are shown in Halls 4, 9 to 12, and 15 to 17.
Another special feature targeting first-time visitors is “StarterWorld: Discover Camping and Caravanning.” In Hall 18 industry experts offer a neutral and manufacturer-independent contact point for all things related to RVing. At the various theme worlds, visitors will find interesting facts and information on the topic of mobile recreation.
