CARAVAN SALON IN DÜSSELDORF
August 27 - September 5 2021
Experience a great variety of leisure vehicles and caravanning products. The novelties of the 2021 season in one place. Over 300 well-known brands and newcomers.
Caravanning and outdoor enthusiasts are excited that CARAVAN SALON is taking place in 2020, since trade fairs are not categorised as major events. A strict regimen of state prescribed hygiene and infection protection concepts will be applied throughout each facet of the fair.
These include increased aisle width, more generous allocation of space in the halls, implementing meaningful distancing measures, wearing of masks as well as washing and disinfecting hands. A limitation of the number of tickets available, surveillance of the distribution of visitors and universal registration of all attendees are also important factors.
The decision for CARAVAN SALON to go ahead is especially welcome, since the number of people searching for an alternative to get away this year has increased exponentially. The popularity of caravanning as a form of vacationing is growing and attracting many new customers, especially under current circumstances. The interest taken in recreational vehicles, accessories and services has been enormous for years and not ceased during the Corona crisis either.
Sales are on the rise too, and herein lies the fascination of the world’s largest trade fair. Motorhomes and caravans are above all emotional products. Potential customers want to see and touch the vehicles before buying them and this does not work digitally. The persuasive power of real displays accelerates decision-making processes substantially. That is why it is so important to be able to offer exhibitors a stage for their new products and innovations especially during these extraordinary times.
Ten halls and outdoor grounds
Like no other leisure trade fair CARAVAN SALON from August 27 – September 5 2021 is synonymous with the passion that all caravanning enthusiasts share. This year sees the Düsseldorf trade fair for motorhomes and caravans already kick off for all parties interested on Friday. This gives all visitors an extra day to get to know the fascination of mobile leisure.
In ten halls and on the outdoor fairgrounds, over 300 exhibitors will showcase the trends, innovations and novelties for the coming season. This year there will again be a broad spectrum of manufacturers and brands offering a huge selection of products across all vehicle categories.
Once again this year, the top launches for the season will be revealed in Düsseldorf. In addition to motorhomes and caravans, base vehicles, accessories, technical equipment, detachable parts, roof-top tents, mobile homes, campsites, motor camps as well as travel destinations will be on show.
Variety and innovations galore
2020 also scores with greatest variety of products and innovations galore. Again this year many renowned international manufacturers will be presenting their latest generation of motorhomes and caravans. The spectrum on display in the Düsseldorf exhibition halls ranges from compact, smart models to spacious luxury mobile homes not forgetting special all-terrain vehicles.
The vast diversity of products being presented make a visit to the trade fair an interesting experience. CARAVAN SALON will once again prove the best platform to gain a comprehensive and yet condensed overview of the market. This applies in particular to newcomers who are now interested in caravanning for the first time. Obtaining basic and comprehensive information could not be easier.
CARAVAN SALON will also serve in 2020 as the place where the sector launches its technical innovations and product news. One trend continues to be the interconnection of various components in the vehicle. Furthermore, customers want more convenience. Ever new layouts and furnishing options make it possible to configure vehicles according to individual needs and preferences. This also holds true for the interior design with soft colour schemes and modern lighting concepts all designed to create a magnificent feel good atmosphere.
Innovation for new clientele
In the motorhome segment compact models are especially popular as they particularly appeal to younger target groups and caravanning newbies with easy handling, maximum agility and lower entry-level prices. On a smaller footprint smart and space-saving storage solutions and furnishing concepts are of particular importance. Add to this the wide range of base vehicles now available.
