For the first time, The Motorhome & Caravan Show 2014 will feature live product launches taking place at the Experts’ Theatre, in Hall 9. Three fantastic debuts will happen exclusively at the Show, with manufacturers talking in person about their amazing innovations and taking questions from the audience.
Adria – on opening day the company launches its brand new Altea 362 LH Forth touring caravan. This addition to the Altea range is a compact caravan with four berths, a modern trendy interior, intelligent lighting and a kitchen more at home in a boutique hotel than a tourer.
See the grand unveilings – Tuesday 14th 1.45pm, and Sunday 19th 1.15pm
Show visitors can even win a brand new Altea 362 LH Forth courtesy of a competition run by The Caravan Club. Enter by filling out a form at stands 20.15 – 20.17 during the Show.
Auto-Sleepers – launching its new ‘Wave’ based on the Mercedes Vito. This 2-berth model with a colour coded Reimo pop-top roof is designed to deliver the combination of everyday usability with the ability to go exploring, or pursue a sporting hobby, at the drop of a hat.
See the grand unveiling – Friday 17th 1.15pm
Hymer – will launch its exciting new low-profile motorhome, the T SL 568. This four-berth vehicle is a premium model with many upgraded features including a luxury gourmet, standard kitchen and new layouts as well as a huge amount of standard equipment. For visitors looking to buy a motorhome that can tour Europe, and be lived in for weeks at a time, this could be the one.

Product demonstrations from two of the UK’s leading camper van conversion companies will also take place live in the Experts’ Theatre, including:
Bilbo’s – demonstrating its bestselling and award winning Celex based on the Volkswagen Transporter T5. This campervan benefits from a double bed and a host of innovative storage options. It’s designed to be a multi-use vehicle, equally at home doing the school run or going on holiday to the Mediterranean.

Hillside Leisure – showcasing its Birchover compact campervan. This is an up-market campervan available as either two or four berth and with a choice of pop or hi-top. It’s built on the user-friendly Volkswagen Transporter T5 and can easily be used as a daily driver yet is equally at home on a weekend break with the family.
See the demonstration – Saturday 18th 1.15pm
One product launch / demonstration will take place each day of the Show and is a chance for the public to ‘meet the makers’. Who better to talk through a product than the manufacturers themselves? Each session will last 30 minutes in total, with 10 minutes dedicated to audience questions.
Andrew Whalley, NCC Events managing director said: “We know that many people visit our Show to see what is new and exciting in the market, so this initiative in the Experts’ Theatre will undoubtedly resonate with our audience.
“We’ve got an exciting mix of products for the public to see for the first time and as well as witnessing these grand unveilings, visitors will also be able to ask the manufacturers the questions they really want to.”
