CARAVAN SALON 2023: A positive statement with 254,000 visitors from 65 countries

“With 254,000 visitors from 65 countries, CARAVAN SALON 2023 made a very positive statement”, says Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director Messe Düsseldorf. “Trade visitors from all continents and consumers from all over Europe travelled to Düsseldorf and thus provided the special international flair of the CARAVAN SALON”. The show ended on Sunday, September 3rd after ten days and highlighted that the holiday form of caravanning is inspiring more and more people and that the community is constantly growing.

Stefan Koschke, Director CARAVAN SALON, says: “Our attractive and varied supporting program fully convinced the visitors. Both the “StarterWelt” and the trend theme “Abenteuer Selbstausbau/DIY” are central information hotspots at the CARAVAN SALON. The Travel & Nature CONNECTED stage has a huge fan community in Hall 3 with its colourful program on caravanning destinations around the world as well as advices on hiking and outdoor activities.”

The newly elected Bernd Löher, President of the Caravanning Industry Association, summed up the 62nd edition of CARAVAN SALON very positively: “Many visitors, a very good atmosphere and unrivalled product variety. This is how people know and appreciate CARAVAN SALON in Düsseldorf. As a sector we can consider ourselves very luckily because such a positive trade fair result cannot be taken for granted in view of the tight economic situation and is an extremely positive impulse for the caravanning industry. With this, CARAVAN SALON once again reinforces its importance as a leading trade fair and beacon for our industry. My special praise goes to all exhibitors, who – despite difficult circumstances – again set new standards in terms of product quality and diversity. The wealth of innovations in vehicles, accessories, and services is and will remain the hallmark of CARAVAN SALON. Though it should not be forgotten that not only the products but also all aspects of caravanning have long since been given a big stage in Düsseldorf. This is why I am very proud that we were again able to welcome many personalities from business, science and political spheres to Düsseldorf. When high political dignitaries such as Minister Mona Neubaur or Minister Oliver Krischer pay a visit to our trade fair, this is an indication that caravanning receives the attention it deserves as a tourism and economic factor. However, this is only the beginning of CIVD’s work and the newly elected board will continue to commit to promoting the economic and tourist potential of our form of holiday ever further.”
