Caravanning very popular / Excellent sales and good atmosphere in the halls
After the first half of CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF (28 August to 5 September 2021) both organisers and exhibitors take satisfactory stock and can report great attendance figures for the first major general-interest fair in Germany: “Until Wednesday included we succeeded in welcoming more than 100,000 visitors to our exhibition grounds. The trade fair concept worked out extremely well. By consistently complying with the VRT rules (Vaccinated, Recovered, Tested) and thanks to the really mindful attitude of our exhibitors and visitors we have been able to moderately increase the original daily visitor quota of 20,000,” delights Michael Degen, Executive Director of Messe Düsseldorf, and goes on to say: “For the second weekend we recommend visitors to take to the Park & Ride lots in Düsseldorf and to use the Rheinbahn trams. Their online tickets include the free round trip by bus and tram in greater Düsseldorf.”
The outstanding climate in the caravanning industry was confirmed over the first five days of the trade fair. This is also reflected by a survey conducted by the Caravaning Industrie Verband e.V. (CIVD) among its exhibiting members.
For caravans three quarters of the manufacturers report a higher number of business deals closed than in the previous year – across the entire product range. The remaining 25% stated they had made sales at last year’s record levels. Hard to imagine but business was even better for motor caravans. Here, the overwhelming majority of 83% producers posted higher sales than in 2020. 30% stated that sales had “risen strongly”. The remaining suppliers so far registered results at 2020 levels. The mobile home segment also saw all vehicle classes benefit from this trend and compact models continued to sell especially well.Continue reading “Trade fair concept works…”
