The UK’s Motorhome and Caravan Show 2020 has been cancelled this year due to concerns over the health and wellbeing of attendees (exhibitor staff and visitors) and also the financial viability of exhibitors and the show itself.
The event is organised by the National Caravan Council (the trade body for the UK caravan industry) and was meant to take place from 13 to October 2020. Instead, it has been postponed to 12 to 17 October 2021. All exhibitors and visitors are entitled to a full refund of any payments for stand costs and tickets.
Usually, Motorhome and Caravan Show in October is an important event for the UK caravan industry with many launches of new model year products. It is a key sales event for manufacturers who want to confirm orders so they can plan production over the winter and into the following year. It’s also popular with consumers who want to order new caravans or motorhomes for delivery early the following year.
NCC Events Chief Executive, John Lally says the decision to postpone the show until 2021 has been “very difficult”. He added: “We know that the Motorhome and Caravan Show plays a critically important role in the achievement of retail sales each season. To this end, we are focusing on initiatives to help and support the showcasing of the 2021 new season products.”
The UK’s second show, the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show, also held at the NEC in Birmingham, is still scheduled to go ahead from 23 to 28 February, 2021.
