Overall attendance at the just concluded 48th Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., was up 4.5% over last year, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) reported this morning.
Total attendance was 8,696, or 373 more than the 2009 show. Other show results:
The number of representatives from manufacturer and supplier exhibitors was down this year, even though the exhibitors booked more space for this year’s show. On average, the exhibitors brought 2.8 fewer people than last year, according to an RVIA estimate.
Though an improvement over recent years, this week’s attendance was well below pre-recession attendance of 13,716 in 2005, when the show covered a record 906,000 square feet in the then newly renovated Kentucky Exposition Center, and 2004, when attendance totaled 14,450, according to RVBUSINESS.com archives.
Final show numbers for this week, followed by their comparison to the 2009 show, follow:
