The countdown has well and truly started: CARAVAN SALON 2022 is getting closer and closer and will again lure caravanning fans from Germany, Europe and the world over to Düsseldorf.
It is with great anticipation that Messe Düsseldorf and the Caravaning Industrie Verband (CIVD) (Caravanning Industry Association) as sponsor look forward to the 61st CARAVAN SALON - from 27 August to 4 September 2022 (Preview Day on 26 August) - which is back on track to its old strength after two years marked by the Covid pandemic.
Visitors can look forward to the world's biggest caravanning trade fair where over 650 exhibitors will be showcasing recreational vehicles for just about every taste and budget in 16 halls and on the outdoor spaces.
With the motto, 'connected through passion', once again, the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre will become the most important meeting point for all caravanning enthusiasts.
Alongside motorhomes, caravans and camper vans the line-up includes vehicle equipment, components and detachable parts, tents, mobile homes, caravanning and camping accessories & equipment, outdoor garments and gear, tourism destinations as well as nature regions, campsites and caravan pitches.
The hallmark of Düsseldorf is the vast choice offered in as many halls as ever – the line-up – ranging from mini caravans with a berth and stove for small budgets to luxury motorhomes – boasts everything that makes the pulse of caravanning fans race. CARAVAN SALON is where nearly all renowned national and international manufacturers launch the latest generation of motorhomes and caravans.
The passion for caravanning extends even beyond the exhibition halls bringing many visitors to the popular Caravan Center at Messe parking lot P1 (large parking lot P1). This Europe’s largest RV park boasting some 3,500 serviced and unserviced pitches during CARAVAN SALON caters to just about every wish. Due to the high demand these pitches are quickly snapped up and so should be reserved via the Ticketshop early on. Reservations are only accepted online at www.caravan-salon.com and by visitors to CARAVAN SALON.
CARAVAN SALON is also extraordinarily well positioned in the accessories, technical equipment and detachable parts segments. No other event for caravanning worldwide offers experts as well as end users a wider, more comprehensive and international line-up of products. Correspondingly, the special show “Abenteuer Selbstausbau” will be staged on the outdoor spaces between Halls 5 and 9 for the first time. Here several self-fitted recreational vehicles can be “inspected” and put through their paces. Various daily talks for beginners, advanced and professional DIY practitioners cover such themes as module installation, layout planning, electrical installations, lightweight construction materials, water supply, workshop and material science, interior, costs and time consumed.
Over the past few years the caravanning sector has seen steady growth and the stock of recreational vehicles is at a record high. The high sales of motorhomes and caravans and the associated development potential for many regions in Germany that are less touristically developed require stepped-up efforts for expanding the caravanning infrastructure. With the aim of presenting successful pitch concepts and promoting further expansion, Monday, 29 August, will see the 2nd “Deutscher Stellplatz-Tag” (German Pitch Day) being held at CARAVAN SALON. Focal themes: a pilot project for climate-neutral motorhome pitches, Wine meets Caravanning, and “Einstellen, Abstellen, Unterstellen” – the new portal for RV shelter solutions.
On the outdoor premises between Halls 10 and 17 the Caravaning Industrie Verband (CIVD) (Caravanning Industry Association) will stage a unique special show on innovative pitch technology and infrastructure in its proven manner. Here seasoned experts and manufacturers will exhibit the current modules for successfully planning motorhome pitches. A special focus here will be on e-mobility. Like in previous years visitors will have the opportunity to get expert advice on site.
Hall 3 focuses on the themes Equipment & Outdoor as well as Travel & Nature. The Equipment & Outdoor segment presents suppliers of tents, folding caravans, caravanning and camping accessories as well as outdoor wear and gear. In the Travel & Nature segment visitors can find the complete range of caravanning and camping tourism – here the most attractive campsites and pitches, the most attractive regions and most versatile leisure activities are all on show. The “centrepiece” of Hall 3 is the “Travel & Nature CONNECTED” stage with a versatile and informative mix of entertainment and presentations. The interactive agenda mixes face-to-face with digital appearances – interested parties can also join online and ask questions via a chat function.
Tickets can be ordered exclusively online at www.caravan-salon.com from early July. Likewise, reservations for overnight stays on P1 can be made on the CARAVAN SALON website from the beginning of July.
