Record breaking NEC show
Dealers and manufacturers also said they saw a “significant increase in sales” compared to similar exhibitions at the same time of year or venue.
This was the first show hosted by the National Caravan Council (NCC), which is also organising a similar indoor show at the Excel Centre in London in February (14 to 19).
When the NCC took over the October NEC show, it committed to reducing both exhibitor costs and the price of tickets. This it did, with tickets starting at £7.
The busiest day was Saturday (15 October) when 25,912 visitors came through the doors.
The show was supported by both The Caravan Club and The Camping and Caravanning Club.
John Lally, CEO NCC, said: “The public now know they can come to shows and find an unrivalled range of products, information, advice and entertainment and all for a great value ticket price.”
