Just seen this. So the show WILL be held again next year at Excel for all we 'Southerners' to get to with comparative ease!
The NCC has confirmed that the Motorhome, Caravan & Camping Show, which took place from February 14 to 19 at the ExCel centre in London, will again be held at the same venue
This year's show, which was the first London motorhome show in six years and attracted an audience in excess of 43,000, said the industry body, the National Caravan Council (NCC).
The event was organised by NCC Events, which is part of the NCC. It confirmed to Outandaboutlive that it will hold another show at the same venue on February 12 to 17, 2013.
Visitors at this year's show were able to view over 600 different models of motorhomes, caravans and holiday homes plus tents, leisure accessories and camping equipment.
Tickets were sold from upwards of £7, which resulted in a total audience of 35,598 paying visitors (82% of the final attendance). The rest were free ticket holders.
Many UK and European motorhome manufacturers were there and many, including Bailey, Auto-Trail and Romahome, confirmed to MMM that the show worked for them because it brought new customers into the market as well as 'kick strating' sales in the southeast.
NCC Events said it is now "in consultation" with the industry to gauge feedback so it can ideliver an even better southern-based event next February.
"Staging a new show at a new venue is always a challenge but we’re delighted to have hit our attendance target and feedback from many visitors has been encouraging," said Simon Coe, exhibition project director.
