All in CARAVANING at the Beijing Exhibition Centre from 23 to 25 June

China’s enthusiasm for the caravaning industry is on the rise. Caravaning and camping are exceedingly popular in China – an ideal starting position for the sixth All in CARAVANING (AIC) at Beijing Exhibition Centre from 23 to 25 June 2017. AIC 2017 has received strong support from local and international caravan brands. The exhibition scale continues to upgrade and two new halls will be added this year. In ten indoor exhibition halls and nearly 10,000 square meters outdoor exhibition area, which makes up to 33,000 square meters in total, 635 exhibitors (around 330 campsites-exhibitors) will showcase a variety of renowned Chinese and international brands, covering caravans, base vehicles, motorhomes, accessories, campsites, outdoor leisure, camping equipment and tourism. When AIC was held for the first time in 2012, it had 53 exhibitors demonstrating their products on 5,000 square metres. An accompanying supporting programme completed the trade fair. Around 18,000 visitors are expected this year.

“All in CARAVANING has been developed to the trend barometer of the Asiatic caravaning sector and we look to this year’s fair full of optimism. As a form of holidaying caravaning in China is once again enjoying great popularity and this year we will again be presenting all sorts of highlights plus many innovations,” says Axel Bartkus, General Manager of Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.

Exhibitors will present over 350 leisure vehicles in all shapes and sizes, ranging from compact pickups through luxurious coaches and campervans to mini caravans.

As before, the patron of All in CARAVANING 2017 in Beijing will be the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI). Jointly organized by Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., China National Travel Service (HK) Group Corporation, China Association of Automotive

Manufacturers Recreational Vehicle Industry Committee (CMRV), China Self-Driving Tour and Camping & Caravaning Association (STCCA) of CTACA and YASN International Exhibition Co., Ltd., AIC is the most influential trade exhibition in the industries of caravans and recreation vehicles hosted by professional exhibition companies together with travel industry leaders and trade associations.

All in CARAVANING benefits from Messe Düsseldorf’s wide-ranging industry knowledge and experience. It has had its own Chinese subsidiary since 1999, with offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Chongqing and Shenyang. Messe Düsseldorf Shanghai (MDS) has two major functions: first, to make Düsseldorf events known in the People’s Republic of China and to support exhibitors and visitors, and, secondly, to work with Chinese and international partners on the successful development and realisation of trade fairs in China. In preparing for AIC in Beijing, Messe Düsseldorf is making use of its extensive expertise which has gained through CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF. This leading international ten-day industries fair on campervans and caravans offers a comprehensive overview of such vehicles as well as a complete range of accessories, equipment, travel destinations, campsites and motorhomes sites. Last year the trade fair reached a new record, attracting 203,500 visitors.
