RV Show Stays in Louisville Through 2014
RV manufacturer, supplier, dealership and association representatives serving on a joint committee examining the calendar for national RV industry events are recommending that the National RV Trade Show take place as scheduled from Dec. 2 -4, 2014, in Louisville, Ky.
While advising no changes to the existing schedules for the National RV Trade Show or the RV Dealers International Convention/Expo, the committee also recommended that the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) and Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) continue to gather more information from industry stakeholders about the timing of industry events, according to a news release.
In June, the RVIA board of directors indicated it would consider moving the National RV Trade Show from late November/early December to a late September/early October timeframe in 2014. The RVDA board of directors indicated it would consider moving the RVDA Convention/Expo later in the year to accommodate the move.
“In the near term, it became clear that we need more information from manufacturers, dealers, and suppliers concerning the industry event calendar before entering into any agreement to change the dates of the National RV Trade Show,” said RVIA Chairman of the Board Gregg Fore of Dicor.
“Both organizations agree that facility and program commitments mean moving the dates for RVDA and RVIA events is not possible at this time,” said RVDA Chairman of the Board Andy Heck of Alpin Haus.
In 2012, the RV Dealers International Convention/Expo is set for Oct. 1-5 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
In 2012, the National RV Trade show is set for Nov. 27-29 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.
