Sensational Sales at Supershow
The booming caravan and camping industry continues to amaze as the Caravan, Camping, RV and Holiday Supershow (Supershow) breaks record exhibitor sales once again. From the 30 April to 8 May the 2011 Supershow attracted crowd numbers of over 80 022 to Rosehill Racecourse, Sydney.
On just the second day of the show the largest ever visitor numbers on any one day at the show were recorded. A phenomenal 17, 474 visitors passed through the gates on Sunday 1 May 2011.
Despite recent reports of flat retails sales generally, the caravan and camping industry has continued to defy trends as many of the higher priced items such as caravans and motorhomes are selling in record numbers. Caravan sales at this years Supershow were at an all time high with many exhibitors experiencing their most successful year yet. A number of recognised motorhome dealers also reported record vehicle sales. The increasing demand for camper trailers was also prominent throughout the Supershow.
Barry Baillie, CEO of the Caravan and Camping Industry Association of NSW attributes the success of the Supershow to the industries significant growth that has been seen over the past 15 years.
“The caravan and camping industry is the fastest growing domestic tourism sector in Australia. Increased interest from younger demographics was evident at this years Supershow, this is due to holiday goers, particularly young families, recognising the benefits and value of caravan and camping holidays.”
There are another two caravan, camping and holiday expos to look forward to this year in Penrith 8-10 September and Batemans Bay (South Coast Expo) 3-5 November.
