CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF: The most important dates of the year

At CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF from 26 August to 3 September, the international caravanning sector will again get together for its annual highlight. In (for the first time) 13 halls visitors can look forward to the world’s biggest ranges for mobile holiday-making. In Düsseldorf the market is mapped almost completely – a unique selling point of CARAVAN SALON. No other fair gives its visitors such a large choice of brands, models and layouts. On top of this diversity of RVs the choice of accessories, technical equipment, fittings, awnings, motorhomes, campsites as well as travel destinations is also unrivalled. 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.

 

New Features in the Accessories Segment

CARAVAN SALON 2017 is in for a major reorganisation in the accessories segment. “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,” adds Stefan Koschke, Director CARAVAN SALON. 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.

 

Every year CARAVAN SALON is the place where all renowned international manufacturers present their latest generation of recreational vehicles. The spectrum is wide and varied. At the No. 1 fair in Düsseldorf everything is represented - from compact and clever to spacious and luxurious. Here everyone with an interest in caravanning finds the matching vehicle. Van conversions and partially integrated motorhomes are particularly popular as entry-level models because they are also good for everyday use.

 

Programme for the Whole Family

However, CARAVAN SALON is also famous for its entertainment programme revolving around mobile vacationing and making a visit to the fair an unforgettable “family affair”.  All new is the “Mountainbike-Parcours” with action guaranteed. In addition to performances by professional riders, visitors are also welcome to have a go at the Pumptrack challenges after prior registration. At the “E-Bike-Parcours” on the outdoor area between Halls 5 and 9 visitors will have the opportunity to test ride e-bikes and e-motorcycles as well as eco-movers and get their manufacturers’ advice. 

 

At the Dream Tours Cinema Janette Emerich, Uwe Hamm and Konstantin Abert will report daily on their travels to distant countries in fascinating multi-vision shows with breath-taking images. This time the following destinations will be featured: Allgäu – Winter Camping in the Alps, the Baltics and St. Petersburg, Baikal Sea and Mongolia, at the heart of France – by motorhome from the Loire to the Atlantic, Panamericana – from Tierra del Fuego to the Caribbean, Düsseldorf – Beijing: By Land to the Middle Kingdom.
