NEC Motorhome Show news: Expert Theatre launch presentations


For the first time, The Motorhome & Caravan Show 2014 will feature live product launches taking place at the Experts’ Theatre, in Hall 9.

Motorhome debuts will happen exclusively at the show, with manufacturers talking in person about their innovations and taking questions from the audience.


Auto-Sleepers will launch its new Wave day van, which is based on the Mercedes Vito.

This 2-berth campervan with a colour coded Reimo pop-top roof is designed to deliver the combination of everyday usability with the ability to go exploring, or pursue a sporting hobby, at the drop of a hat.

See the grand unveiling on Friday 17 October at 1.15pm.


Hymer will launch its low-profile motorhome, the T SL 568. This four-berth vehicle is a premium model with many upgraded features including a luxury standard kitchen and new layouts as well as a huge amount of standard equipment.

For visitors looking to buy a motorhome that can tour Europe, and be lived in for weeks at a time, this could be the one.

See the grand unveiling - Thursday 16th 1.15pm

Product demonstrations from two of the UK’s leading camper van conversion companies will also take place live in the Experts’ Theatre, including:


Bilbo's will be demonstrating its bestselling and award-winning Celex campervan based on the Volkswagen Transporter T5. This campervan benefits from a double bed and a host of innovative storage options.

It’s designed to be a multi-use vehicle, equally at home doing the school run or going on holiday to the Mediterranean.

See the demonstration on Wednesday 15 October at 1.15pm

Hillside Leisure

Hillside Leisure will be showcasing its Birchover compact campervan. This is an up-market campervan available as either two or four-berth and with a choice of pop or hi-top.

It’s built on the user-friendly Volkswagen Transporter T5 and can easily be used as a daily driver yet is equally at home on a weekend break with the family.

See the demonstration on Saturday 18 October at  1.15pm

One product launch / demonstration will take place each day and is a chance for the public to meet the makers. Who better to talk through a product than the manufacturers themselves?

Each session will last 30 minutes in total, with 10 minutes dedicated to audience questions.

Andrew Whalley, NCC Events managing director said:  “We know that many people visit our Show to see what is new and exciting in the market, so this initiative in the Experts’ Theatre will undoubtedly resonate with our audience.

“We’ve got an exciting mix of products for the public to see for the first time and as well as witnessing these grand unveilings, visitors will also be able to ask the manufacturers the questions they really want to.”
