The organisers at CARAVAN SALON could not have wished for a better birthday present: Coinciding with its 50th anniversary the No. 1 trade fair for motor homes and caravans was the busiest event in its history. On top of this, exhibitors delighted at another increase in sales. Taking an extremely positive stock Managing Director at Messe Düsseldorf Joachim Schäfer said: “Registering 179,000 visitors, this year’s CARAVAN SALON has by far exceeded our expectations of over 160,000 visitors. And the international spread of visitors was also very high again. Trade visitors came here from around the globe particularly to meet their business partners and gather information on innovations.” Schäfer went on to explain “This year 62% of visitors came with specific intentions to buy. This is particularly positive because CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF is considered a barometer for the coming season. The positive response to this year’s CARAVAN SALON demonstrates the popularity of caravanning as a holiday-making format – one that combines individuality and independence with environmental compatibility and activities in nature and one that reflects and benefits from current megatrends in society.”
