The first major post-covid exhibition Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf at the Messe Düsseldorf, the same venue as the Boat Show seems to have gone off without a hitch.
Exhibitors, visitors and the authorities all seemed happy with the safety and hygiene protocols put in place for Caravan Salon.
Taking place in the same facility as Boot Düsseldorf, Caravan Salon attracts a comparable number to the 250,000 enthusiasts who attended the boat show in Düsseldorf this past January.
“We are very satisfied with the results obtained said Stefan Koschke, director of the caravan show. “We are delighted to see our hygiene concept working so outstandingly well and the behaviour rules being accepted by visitors without problems. The mood in the halls was excellent and we are particularly happy about the accomplished re-start of the trade fair business.”
Approximately 350 exhibitors are presenting motorhomes and caravans of all sizes and price categories, along with the complete range of equipment and accessories for the sector, across 10 halls and outdoor spaces, at Messe Düsseldorf.
In a similar vein to the boating industry, caravanning is enjoying a surge of popularity among consumers seeking ‘staycation’ options, including newcomers. “A strikingly high percentage of first-time visitors has been registered at 42%, noted Koschke.
