Caravan Salon Düssledorf 2017: a second technology area in Hall 5

At this year’s Caravan Salon Düssledorf from Saturday, 26 August (trade visitor and media day on 25 August) to Sunday, 3 September 2017, the international caravanning sector will again get together for its annual highlight. “Caravanning and the whole segment of mobile leisure continues to undergo a real boom and enthuses vast numbers of people. The demand by participating companies was so high that we had to enlarge our exhibition area yet again.” says Joachim Schäfer, Managing Director at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. On exhibition space measuring 214,000 square metres the international exhibitors present in excess of 130 caravan and motorhome brands and over 2,100 recreational vehicles in a wide variety of price categories.

“To maintain the fair’s great appeal it is necessary to present the market for accessories as completely as possible. New suppliers from North America, Asia and Eastern Europe as well as the request voiced by participating accessories vendors to adapt the hall structure to the increased demand have prompted us to install a second technology area in Hall 5. This means we will be substantially expanding the ranges of fittings, installations and technical equipment yet again,” says Director Stefan Koschke.

This also creates an even more professional setting for order talks, business and networking. In the modern Hall 7a a new “accessories paradise” will be created exclusively dedicated to over-the-counter sales of caravanning and camping accessories. In Hall 5 the traditional exhibition of awnings and roof-top tents as well as folding caravans will be retained alongside the new technology area. The tourism section with campsites and motorhome parks as well as travel destinations continues to be housed in Hall 7 right next to Nord entrance.

“CARAVAN SALON is the No. 1 fair and trend barometer for the industry. The great success of CARAVAN SALON has aroused the interest of other European and international companies – following the extension of the vehicles halls last year this applies particularly to the equipment and accessories industry. We expect the number of firms exhibiting in this segment to increase further and, hence, exceed 600 exhibitors in total. The outlook is superb and we are looking to this year’s event with optimism,” says Stefan Koschke.
