This year’s Caravan Salon came to an end on September 3 with a strong increase in visitors: according to Messe Düsseldorf’s final announcement, the trade fair organizers and around 750 exhibitors were delighted with the excellent atmosphere and more than 254,000 visitors. This was an increase of 8% compared to the previous year, he said.

“Trade visitors from all continents and end consumers from all over Europe traveled to Düsseldorf and thus provided the special, international flair of the Caravan Salon,” says Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf. Wienkamp thus particularly emphasizes that visitors from 65 countries came to the Caravan Salon.

An all-round positive outlook for the future of the industry

Many well-known exhibitors and Bernd Löher, the newly elected president of the Caravaning Industrie Verband, were also very satisfied. The many good discussions, the number and the purchase intentions of the visitors, the enormous product variety, the fair organization as well as the economic and social meaning of the camping and caravan industry were emphasized.

Ruhr Nachrichten, Allgemeine Zeitung and Westfalen Blatt also reported with reference to a dpa report: according to a study, vacations in motorhomes or caravans would generate 18.1 billion euros in sales for the German economy in 2022. That would be 20% more than in 2021.

Despite inflation and a gloomy economy, the industry can be pleased about the continued high demand for campers and caravans. At the same time, manufacturers seem to be getting a better and better grip on the supply difficulties, which were triggered primarily by the pandemic, the Russian attack on Ukraine, and the shortage of skilled workers.

PiNCAMP and ADAC Camping are also highly satisfied with the Caravan Salon 2023

The PiNCAMP and ADAC Camping team also welcomed numerous visitors at the leading trade fair. Many end consumers sought advice via the ADAC Camping and Stellplatz app. In addition, many camping entrepreneurs came to Düsseldorf to learn about innovative concepts for marketing and online booking of campsites.

We look forward with confidence to the further development of the industry and to next year’s Caravan Salon. This will take place from August 30 to September 8, 2024!
