Approximately 19,120 visitors attended the events, gathering information about innovations related to RVs, motorhomes, basic vehicles and accessories as well as concept vehicles. The exhibits were complemented by two congresses with international expert lectures about the developments in the Chinese RV and tuning industry.

“Communication with the staff here was very positive and professional in the run-up to the event,” said Stefano Bonometti of Germany-based Fendt. “The exhibition venue and atmosphere of the event have left a positive impression on us. Participation in All in Caravaning definitely pays off for our company.”
The RV Committee of the China Association of Automotive Manufacturers (CMRV) acted as a co-organizer of All in CARAVANING 2013. Cooperation partners were the CTS Asset Management Corporation (CTSAMC) and China’s largest tour operator China National Travel Service (CTS). The event was also supported by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) from the U.S., the RV & Accommodation Industry from Australia (CRVA) and the German Caravaning Industrie Verband e.V. (CIVD).
Jost Krüger from CIVD noted, “The second staging of All in Caravaning provided an outstanding platform to sound out the potential market for caravanning as a leisure-time pursuit in China. The accompanying conference as well as the workshops gave visitors good opportunities for gaining in-depth knowledge and exchange opinions.”
“It should be noted that caravaning is still in its early stages in China. Creating the necessary fundamental conditions such as the construction of additional campsites as well as the adoption of a legal framework for the engineering and approval of recreation vehicles must be pursued very intensely. If these be implemented in an appropriate way, the Chinese RV market will experience successful development.”
