Caravan show moving from The Lawns after 44 years

835ff255-2cc5-4305-ac17-72b1b8ce4d62
The oldest event in the caravan exhibitions’ calendar is to move to a new location in September next year. 
 
After 44 years in the grounds of the University of Hull at The Lawns in Cottingham, near Hull, the trade and public exhibitions featuring the majority of the industry’s manufacturers will in future be held at the Yorkshire Event Centre, home of the enormous  Great Yorkshire Show, in Harrogate.
 
The exhibition is run by a group of Yorkshire-based caravan manufacturers – HERCMA – which, along with many other companies in the industry, use the annual event to launch their new season’s models.
 
A spokesman for the group said the move to the much larger site would enable many more exhibitors to be accommodated as well as increase the scope of the show with, in particular, plenty of room for motorhomes.
 
“We see this change as a tremendous and exciting opportunity to make the event even bigger and better within the extensive and attractive grounds of the Yorkshire Event Centre,” he said. “We wanted the event to remain in Yorkshire and the move to a more central position in the country opens up a whole new catchment area, with over six million people living within an hour’s drive.
 
“We are certain we’ll attract a substantial new audience to what will be a fantastic show in a spectacular and iconic location which is already well-known to vast numbers of people. The Great Yorkshire Show actually attracts more than 135,000 people over its three days.”
