RVIA_CentennialAs the RV ”Centennial Celebration” approaches on June 7 at the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum in Elkhart, Ind., the deadline for purchasing tickets for the event is fast approaching, according to the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association’s (RVIA) newsletter RVIA Express

Tickets for the can’t-miss event will be available for purchase at the $35 rate through May 21. 

Festivities, to be held during RVIA’s Committee Week and Annual Meeting, will include a barbecue and outdoor reception featuring casual fare and a variety of entertaining booths, a Centennial Campfire surrounded by antique RVs, and more.

The outdoor reception will be followed by a special program honoring the industry’s past. The fast-paced, one–hour program held inside the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum will include entertaining videos and presentations saluting the industry’s history, and a cake-cutting ceremony. A rousing fireworks display will wrap up the evening.  

A key theme of the RV Centennial Celebration is the “Salute to Workers,” as the industry offers a tribute to the line workers who are the heart and soul of its success.

RVIA encourages industry members to bring their most valued line workers to the event. Line workers in attendance will be recognized by RVIA President Richard Coon and RVIA Chairman Jim Sheldon, who will present a plaque made to honor the commitment of “the dedicated men and women who help build products that allow families to travel freely and affordably.”

In addition, a group photo of the workers will be taken at the event that will accompany the plaque and remain on permanent display at the RV/MH Hall of Fame. 

Advance tickets are required for entry to the event, as walk-ups cannot be accommodated.

Tickets are available to RV industry representatives, spouses, colleagues, co-workers, the media and invited guests over the age of 18. The RV Centennial Celebration is not open to consumers.
