Trade Show Highlights Chinese RV Industry
China’s enthusiasm for the RV industry is on the rise, as evidenced by the third “All in CARAVANING” trade show held June 27-29 at the Beijing Exhibition Center.
According to a press release, this year’s edition marked the first time the trade fairs All in Caravaning and All in Tuning – the trade fair for professional automobile tuning — were held as separate events. The 183 exhibitors at All in Caravaning brought some 5,240 visitors up to speed on the latest highlights revolving around camper vans, caravans, motorhomes, base vehicles and accessories as well as a variety of holiday and leisure activities.
The trade fair reinforced its position as the leading exhibition for motorhomes and towable RVs in China by including camping and recreational equipment as well as campground amenities in its expanded offer range and by adding a comprehensive supporting program. Further enhancing the trade fair was a high-caliber, two-day conference featuring industry-specific presentations by international lecturers.
In addition to Chinese firms, All in Caravaning offered a host of international exhibitors, including manufacturers from Germany, France Italy, Netherlands and Sweden as well as overseas exhibitors from the U.S., Australia, South Korea and Malaysia. Prestigious brands such as Fendt, Hobby, Dethleffs and Adria as well as leading suppliers such as Thetford, Truma, Dometic, Optiplan, Vöhringer, EuraMax and Project 2000 showcased their products and services.
A diverse supporting programs rounded out the event by offering interesting and informative presentations on the current state of the industry and future trends. This year’s All in Caravaning Annual Conference June 27-28 was divided into two focus days: the “Campground Day” and the “Recreational Vehicle Day.” This event brought together key corporate and association players to discuss various aspects of campground management and development in China as well as mobile recreational services and international cooperation opportunities.
Once again the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) served as the patron for All in Caravaning 2014 in Beijing. Additional partners included the Chinese exhibition company YASN, the organizer of China’s largest automotive accessories trade fair; China’s largest travel agency China National Travel Service (CTS); and the China Association of Automotive Manufacturers Recreational Vehicle Industry Committee (CAARV).
