Due to the growing interest in RVing and all segments of mobile vacationing in China, the 7th All in CARAVANING (AiC) trade fair will be held at a bigger exhibition center in Beijing at the Etrong International Exhibition & Convention Center from June 22-24.
“With this year’s event we will take it to the next level of quality. In addition to growth in terms of exhibition space and exhibitor numbers we also expect a record number of visitors,” said Stefan Koschke, global head of caravaning & outdoor at Messe Düsseldorf, in a press release. “These impressive developments at AiC confirm that RVing as a form for vacationing is very popular in Chinese society. The fast-growing middle class with great purchasing power is increasingly discovering this type of mobile vacationing. The development of the RV industry is also very much favored by the dynamic expansion of campsites and caravan tourism offerings.”
Over 700 national and international exhibitors will showcase their products on 377,000 square feet of exhibition space to an expected 30,000 visitors. At the first event in 2012, 53 exhibitors took part on 54,000 square feet.
“In view of the booming market demand and constantly growing exhibition space we need a larger exhibition platform to develop AiC into a bigger and even more successful trade fair. With the new exhibition center, we not only meet current growth requirements but also the quality expectations for this event,” stated Axel Bartkus, general manager at Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.
AiC Project Director Yujia Du Blanchard, added, “The AiC family festival offers a number of science, technology, education, culture and entertainment programs for parents and children allowing them to experience caravanning in a lively setting. For the first time, motorhome and RV fans will have the opportunity to stay overnight in their own vehicles close to the exhibition center. The ranges and activities will be complemented by technical lectures and special shows.”
Organized by Messe Düsseldorf Shanghai (MDS), AiC benefits from Messe Düsseldorf’s wide-ranging industry knowledge and experience with CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF, the leading international trade fair for RVs and motorhomes held annually in Düsseldorf, Germany. Last year, the event attracted a record 232,000 visitors over 10 days.
