The first Victorian Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow at Melbourne Showgrounds laid the foundation for even bigger Supershows in the years ahead Caravan Industry Association of Victoria (CIA Vic) CEO, Rob Lucas, said today.
He said he was delighted with the Supershows first trip to the Melbourne Showgrounds. Despite searing heat, a new location and a new time, attendance was over 51,000.
There were more products than even before, a better visitor experience, informative seminars and some great prizes.
The Passport to Freedom competition was the biggest in years.
First prize was won by N.Orr from Launching Place who took home a brand new Nova Metrolink Family Caravan.
Second prize, a Avan Weekender Camper, was won by P.Bennett from Laverton.
I. Wilson from Hamilton won 3rd prize, the Getaway Towing Package, and J. Jeffries of Pascoe Vale South won 4th prize, caravan hire from Eastern Caravan Hire.
The 61st Supershow featured more caravans, camper trailers, motorhomes and travel accessories than ever before.
More than 1200 individual recreational vehicles were on display, more than any Australian show in history.
This has been a monumental move for the Victorian Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow and we were thrilled with the response to the new venue and our ability to show off the industry in a more professional light, Rob Lucas said.
Its good to know that all the hard work that the Association has put in over the last year has resulted in the best show yet and we cant wait to get cracking on making next years show even bigger.
The Victorian Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow will return to Melbourne Showgrounds in early 2016 and work is already underway to build upon the success of this years show.
