​Paolo Moresco, Managing Director, Airxcel Europe, says it's important to exhibit at the Caravan Salon

Paolo Moresco, Managing Director of Airxcel Europe, created following the acquisition of CAN by the Airxcel Group from North America, explains to AboutcampBtoB why the group will still exhibit at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf this year.

Airxcel Europe has its headquarters in Bassano del Grappa in the province of Vicenza, in Northern Italy. ​

Question: Your company is one that is still taking part in the Caravan Salon Dusseldorf 2020 (CSD). Why is it important for you to still participate in the Caravan Salon?

Yes, we will participate at CSD 2020.  At this particular time it is important  for us to support our industry of recreational vehicles that offer a safe alternative to escape from our actual situations. Our industry can offer the only opportunity for safe vacations and it is correct that we follow the need despite some challenges.

What are your expectations for this year’s show? 

We do not expect the usual international OE customers, instead we expect more local end customers that want to know more about our lifestyle and our products.

Did the Covid emergency have an important impact on your business and what do you forecast for the upcoming future? 

No doubt that Covid affected our production processes with breaks in the supply chain; it also required us to make many changes to ensure the highest level of safety for all our employees. 

Airxcel began in 1991 when the Coleman company divested their Coleman RV Air Conditioner division to a group of company executives. Since that time, the company has continued to grow through innovative product development, market expansion and strategic acquisitions.
