Dealers Pleased with Revived New Mexico Show

Outdoor recreation enthusiasts turned out in high numbers as the crowded show floors resulted in steady sales this past weekend at the inaugural New Mexico RV, Boat & Travel Show, staged in Albuquerque and sponsored by DISH Network and Affinity Events.

New Mexico’s largest RV and boat indoor show of the year featured over 130 units as well as exhibits on campgrounds and accessories and entertainment.

“Both sales and attendance were strong, and the response from dealers and exhibitors alike was overwhelmingly positive. Albuquerque seemed to be waiting for a show like this to come back to town,” according to a news release.

“The turnout at the New Mexico RV, Boat & Travel Show exceeded everyone’s expectations, and sales were beyond what were projected,” said Jim Sibert, show manager. “Many high dollar RV units were contracted, as well as dozens of boat sales, and, according to the participating dealers, we look forward to many follow up sales to be made. It was an extremely positive show from move in to move out. There is no doubt that this first year show has legs to last for many years to come.”
