2015 ‘World RV Conference’ Set for Australia
Sponsored by Dometic Corp., the 2015 World RV Conference follows the successful 2nd Annual World RV Conference, which attracted 216 delegates representing 16 countries from around the world to the Marriott Waterside Hotel in Tampa, Fla.
The 2015 event will be hosted by the Caravan Industry Association of Australia (CIAA), which becomes effective July 12 following the merger of the Caravan, RV & Accommodation Industry of Australia (CRVA) and the Recreational Vehicle Manufacturing Association of Australia (RVM Australia).
CIAA is the sister association to the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA).
The World RV Conference presents a venue where industry leaders can come together to discuss trends and opportunities for working together, and for RV businesses to share ideas and learn from different industries around the world.
The program will feature a mix of plenary sessions as well as interactive workshops and panel discussions. In addition, in keeping with the strong networking opportunities at the 2015 World RV Conference, the social program will form an important part of the event.
The 2013 World Conference in Florida was by all accounts a success. RVBUSINESS.com reported that RV manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, campground people and trade association representatives converged for a “full schedule of informative workshops, speakers and social interaction — including a dinner cruise around Tampa Bay.” Together, they shared market information and statistics, discussed technical issues and standards, and explored how RV companies can work together in an increasingly interconnected world market.
Dometic, a worldwide supplier with strong links to the Australian caravanning and camping industry, is the Presenting Partner for the 2015 World RV Conference.
“Dometic has long been a supporter of the Australian industry, and their role as Presenting Partner for this important event only cements that,” said CRVA CEO Stuart Lamont.
Dometic provides the global RV industry and aftermarket suppliers and retailers with a complete range of air conditioners, refrigerators, awnings, cookers, sanitation systems, lighting, mobile power equipment, comfort and safety solutions, windows, doors and other equipment.
The 2015 World RV Conference will be immediately followed by the 2015 CIAA National Conference, which will run from Feb. 27 to March 1 at the same venue.
It should be noted that January to March 2015 is an exciting time to visit Melbourne as there will be a number of world class events taking place, including the Grand Slam Tennis Australian Open, the Australian F1 Grand Prix, the Autumn Horse Carnival, World Cup Cricket, Asian Cup Soccer and the largest Air Show in the southern Hemisphere.
