Kentucky Exposition Center

The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) today (Jan. 17) revised a dealership attendancenumber from its National RV Trade Show held last year in Louisville, Ky.

The RVIA release follows:

"After completing our attendance audit for the 2011 National RV Trade Show, an error by the registration company in reporting RV dealership counts was identified and has now been corrected. The actual number of RV dealerships in attendance was 1,017, not the 1,641 reported onsite. The reporting error was limited to RV dealership company counts, and did not impact individual attendee counts or overall show attendance. A total of 8,159 people attended the 2011 National RV Trade Show, a decrease of 6.2% from the 8,696 that attended the 2010 event.

RVIA regrets the error. Controls have been adopted to ensure this sort of error does not occur again."

The error led RVIA to initially report that the number of dealerships represented at the show was up 26.8% from a year earlier.
