The Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) reported that booth space for the 2013 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo is close to 70% sold with less than four months to go. According to a press release, only 45 booths remain and half of the vehicle space is taken with six manufacturers signed up to show vehicles on site for the event, set to run Sept. 30–Oct. 4 in Las Vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.
“The trend this year seems to be for bigger booths,” said RVDA Marketing Manager Julie Newhouse. “I have sold four 20-by-20 spaces already. There is tremendous support for this event.”
In addition to the exhibition, nine corporate partners are supporting the convention in 2013. GE Capital is the sole Platinum Partner and Bank of the West and Protective are Gold Partners. Six Bronze Partners are: Ally Financial; Bank of America Merrill Lynch; Diversified Insurance Management Inc.; Forest River Inc.; Lance Camper Manufacturing Corp.; and MBA Insurance, Inc.
Other firms are supporting the event by sponsoring various portions of the convention. Bank of America Merrill Lynch is the sponsor of both the Opening Reception on Oct. 1, and the Early Bird Breakfast on Oct. 3. The Early Bird Breakfast on Oct. 2 is sponsored by NWAN/National Automotive Experts.
