Registration is now open for RVIA’s 52nd National RV Trade Show, scheduled for Dec. 2 - 4 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, KY.
The all-industry wholesale trade event will feature 57 manufacturers and 227 supplier exhibitors showcasing the latest RV models, innovative new products, and RV-related services across more than 755,000 square feet of exhibit space. More than 8,000 RV industry executives, including RV dealers, warehouse distributors, accessory store owners, campground operators, and exhibitor personnel from manufacturer and supplier companies, are expected to attend.
An updated show floor plan is being unveiled this year with show registration taking place in the West Hall Lobby rather than the front of the Freedom Hall Arena.
Another new addition to the National RV Trade Show this year is a robust seminar track geared toward parts and service personnel and service technicians at RV dealerships. Not only are the seminars free of charge, RVIA will pay dealers to have their parts and service personnel attend by providing a $200 stipend to help offset some of the costs associated with bringing staff to the show. This track of seminars features seven sessions from leading supplier companies taking place from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 3, and Thursday, Dec. 4. More information about the seminars, including how to register, can be found by clicking here.
RVIA will also offer a seminar to help boost sales. Best-selling author and sales expert Marc Wayshak will present "Championship Selling in the New Economy" on Wednesday, Dec. 3, from 7:30 a.m. – 9 a.m. The cost is $25 in advance and $35 on-site and includes breakfast, in-person training, and a follow-up webinar and video series.
The National RV Trade Show will kick off with RVIA’s popular opening program, Outlook 2015: Good Things Ahead, taking place from 7:30 - 9 a.m. in the KEC South Wing Ballroom. The upbeat, fast-paced program will report on how RVIA’s public relations efforts and the Go RVing national advertising campaign are teaming up to help keep the good times rolling for the industry. The Outlook program and breakfast are free for attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. All National RV Trade Show attendees are welcome, and no reservations are necessary. Show registration will be available in the South Wing Lobby C Entrance prior to the event.
