The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) assigned exhibit space to 30 RV manufacturers representing 47 brands during the space drawing on June 14 for the 61st Annual California RV Show, which is shaping up to be even better than last year’s event.
According to a press release, Monaco RV/Holiday Rambler drew first (assigned 20,000 square feet) followed by Jayco Inc. (57,000 square feet), Leisure Travel/Triple E RV (4,000 square feet), Sportsmobile West (2,000 square feet), and Pleasure Way Industries (2,000 square feet).
“Many companies increased their exhibit size,” said Tom Gaither, RVIA western show director. “We have already exceeded the size of the event last year with four months to go. We have space requirements for more than 595,000 square feet of space as compared to just over 584,000 in 2012.
Gaither expects to have 1,200 RVs on display at the California RV Show. “We’re going to have great representation among the many product types available in both the motorhome and towable markets,” he said. “In particular, we will also have a very large selection of toy hauler products, probably the largest selection found at any consumer show.”
He added that during the summer and early fall RVIA staff will visit with exhibiting manufacturers and local dealers to talk to them about programs offered at the show to help them increase their sales. “It’s one thing to just exhibit, it’s entirely different when you show up with a plan to achieve your goals and measure your show results,” Gaither said.
The 61st Annual California RV will take place The Fairplex in Pomona from Oct. 11–20. For more information visit www.TheBestRVShow.com or contact Tom Gaither at (818) 248-6600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
