Swift Group's first online show proves a big success

The Swift Group, the UK’s largest manufacturer of touring caravans, motorhomes and holidays homes, reports that its first online show, ‘Swift Live’ on 11th February, was a big success and attracted over 25,000 visits.

The event welcomed thousands of guests, with thousands more registered to attend in the future, included a range of  video presentations,  live  chat and a virtual showroom. Swift also attracted visitors with offers available.

Nick Page, Swift Commercial Director, said: “We couldn’t be happier with the reaction to Swift Live. It’s been a challenging time for the leisure vehicle sector and consumers alike, with the absence of the usual industry events and dealership showrooms unable to open, so it’s great to be able to help fill this space.

“Already we’ve had over 25,000 visits to our product booths, where people can view the ranges with 360 ̊tours, download brochures and talk with the experts – just as you’d expect from a real-world exhibition. Our auditorium area has likewise proved extremely popular, alongside the lifestyle and practical  usership  video  content  into  which  we  and  our  partners  have  poured  so  much  care  and effort.

“The feedback  has  been  absolutely  superb  and  we  have  received  many  kind  comments from attendees, who are delighted by the ability to experience all this from the comfort of their homes, as well as the exclusive offers and unique insight into the Swift world. We are also pleased with the very encouraging number of sales generated, and are looking forward to seeing how this develops over the event’s duration.”
