Officials of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) have agreed to return their largest annual trade show to the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) in Louisville, Ky., through 2015, with renewal options through 2019.

As reported by the Courier-Journal, RVIA’s National RV Trade Show is one of only five shows that use all 1.2 million square feet of the center’s exhibit space. It usually draws more than 12,000 attendees and generates nearly $8 million in local economic impact.

The 2013 trade show is scheduled for Dec. 3-5 at the center. The 50th anniversary event in 2012 drew 68 manufacturers and 235 suppliers displaying the latest recreational vehicles and related products. Attendees included dealers, warehouse distributors, accessory store owners and campground operators.

The show, which has been in Louisville for nearly 30 consecutive years, is not open to the public. For information, go to

    Hooray! I hope it gets extended to 2019. Weather doesn’t matter – it’s indoors! Also, dealers (like me) can see all manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers in one place, under one roof, in one trip. Try doing that in Indiana and in the rain! I’ll be at Louisville, not Indiana….
