RVIA, CalARVC Team Up On RV Show
The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) and the California Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds (CalARVC) will put campgrounds front and center for the 62nd Annual California RV Show.
This year’s show, produced by the RVIA, happens Oct. 10-19 at the LA Fairplex in Pomona. RVIA and CalARVC teamed up to promote California camping to more than 28,000 RVers at the show, according to the organizations.
Tom Gaither, show director, has redesigned the show layout. Show attendees now enter and exit the show through the “campground” entrance featuring a park model, teepee, and unique RVs. The campground drops the attendees right into the RVIA “Camp Store” exhibitor tent. The Camp-California Camping Exhibit area includes 14 premium booths in the front of the tent. CalARVC has negotiated a 25% booth discount for members who want to promote their park at the 62nd running of this show. Additionally, RVIA has qualified volunteers who can run your booth mid-week, saving campgrounds the need to staff the booths for the entire time.
A 10-foot-by-10-foot booth is $500 for CalARVC members if reserved by June 20, a savings of $175.
The mid-week volunteers will save 32 hours of staff salaries and time.
The RVIA also provided negotiated Sheraton Fairplex & Fairplex KOA rates for lodging.
The California RV Show is the oldest and largest RV show on the west coast. If you have ever considered showcasing your park, this is the show for you, according to CalARVC. The LA basin is the largest RV-draw market in the country.
Gaither has pulled out all the stops to make this the premier RV show in California. In addition to the “campground” & “camp store” already mentioned, the 10-day show will have a complete Vintage Trailer display, Building an RV display, RV Factory Showcase, Test Drive area, How-To seminars, and world-class entertainment spread over close to 1 million square feet. With more than 1,200 RVs on display, southern California consumers flock to this show.
