unnamedOrganizers for America’s Largest RV Show, slated for Sept. 14-20 at the Giant Center in Hershey, Pa., are preparing for the largest show ever.

“I am pleased to report show space is currently over 1 million net square feet,” said Heather Leach, marketing director for the host Pennsylvania RV & Camping Association (PRVCA), in a press release. “We have surpassed last year’s record by more than 6% and are essentially sold out. We have even started a waiting list for companies interested in public day booth vendor space.”

The show is the first to debut the 2016 product, which is a draw for both the industry members and consumers. This year’s industry education events will continue with training from leading suppliers. “We’re very excited about our education lineup and hope that the industry takes advantage of it,” Leach stated. “There’s no other place you can receive this variety of training, including qualifying for recertification hours, and get the first chance to see the newest products in the market.”

The Industry Days education format includes:

• Red Carpet Breakfast featuring NFL Hall of Famer Tim Brown.

• RV technician training:

– Lippert Components

– Norcold/Thetford

– Atwood Mobile Products

– Dexter Axle

– Blue Ox

– Cequent Towing Products

– Titan International

– Dometic Corp.

• Distributor showcase by Keller Marine and RV.

• PDI training with Gary Motley.

• How to recruit and keep workampers.

The annual Industry Party will be held on Monday evening at Hersheypark where exhibitors and attendees can enjoy rides, a variety of heavy hors d’oeuvres and Pennsylvania’s own Yuengling Lager and assortment of wines. The party, which is held from 4-6 p.m., allows plenty of free time in the evening for networking, taking in the sites or just relaxing.

“We’ve also decided to take our event mobile this year,” Leach states. “Simply download the guidebook app and search for America’s Largest RV Show.”
