CARAVAN SALON 2020: Passionate Event Charted for Success

This year’s CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF has provided impressive proof that caravanning as a way of holidaymaking inspires people and that trade fairs can be held successfully even in Corona times. Messe Düsseldorf and the Caravaning Industrie Verband e. V. (CIVD) can look back on very positive results. "With 107,000 visitors the CARAVAN SALON sends an important signal for the entire trade fair industry in Germany and Europe. The world's most important trade fair for caravanning convinced with its well thought-out hygiene and infection protection concept", rejoices Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director Messe Düsseldorf. The mood at the fairground has been excellent. Just as positive, he adds, is the fact that more and more newbies as well as many young families have visited the caravanning trade fair.


Hermann Pfaff, President of the Caravaning Industrie Verband, was also thrilled with how the CARAVAN SALON went: “These visitor numbers are a very good result under the circumstances. The fact that they include many newcomers and that the average age has come down markedly shows that we are currently experiencing an inflow of completely new customers. The success of the event, however, is not only measured by the attendance figures but above all by the sales deals concluded – and those were even higher than in the record year across the board. Add to this, the customers’ very useful direct feedback that manufacturers can only get in this way at a trade fair. Furthermore, the expert exchange on the biggest B-2-B platform of our industry is extremely valuable for exhibitors.”  


The exhibitors of CARAVAN SALON were also exuberant about the results of the trade fair and reported very good sales closed.


The 60th CARAVAN SALON Düsseldorf will be held from 27 August to 5 September 2021.
