THE CARAVAN & MOTORHOME SHOW ROLLS INTO MANCHESTER
15-18 JANUARY 2015
We at ETK Lettings are proud to be invited to attend the Caravan & Motorhome Show in Manchester, not to occupy a stand, but for our feedback and review services. The Caravan & Motorhome Show will be pitching up at Manchester’s EventCity from 15th-18th January 2015, offering a huge choice of the latest models of touring caravans, motorhomes and holiday homes.
With over 300 exhibitors there is an incredible choice of new model caravans and motorhomes from all the leading manufacturers.
The 2015 show will feature more companies unveiling new products than any show previously and new layouts will be exclusively showcased by leading manufacturers Bailey and Swift.
As usual, visitors can enjoy exciting and exclusive show offers, new show attractions and stock up with all the holiday essentials at the Towsure Accessory Superstore, whilst browsing the latest models from leading brands including Swift, Bailey, Elddis, Lunar, Coachman, Adria, Compass, Xplore, Auto-Sleepers, Bürstner, Knaus, Chausson, Auto-Trail, Autocruise, Moto-Trek and many more.
Last year the show saw a record breaking 27,917 visitors, with attendance up 13% on the previous year and 2015 aims to smash this target to be the biggest yet.
It is not all about caravans, of course. With a huge number of campsites and parks, plus holiday inspiration from the UK and overseas tourist boards, there will be lots to inspire exciting new ideas for local days out and more exotic escapes.
The four-day event marks the return of last year’s successful new attraction – Great Days Out – showcasing leading tourist attractions and proving that caravanning isn’t a minority pursuit by offering inspirational new ideas for fantastic UK places to visit. Plus, there will be discounted ticket offers that are exclusive to visitors of the show. I think I will get my Entertain the Kids head on for this bit.
A whole new host of attractions have already been confirmed for 2015 perfect for filling your next UK holiday with, including The National Football Museum, Wychwood Brewery, Gulliver’s Kingdom, Ullswater Steamers, Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, Visit Ribble Valley and more.
For those who might be new to touring, The Caravan Club will be offering visitors the opportunity to have a go at one of their free taster sessions – choose from ‘Motorhome Manoeuvring’ or ‘Tow Car Try Before You Buy’, where you can test-drive a winner from the prestigious Caravan Club Tow Car of the Year Awards 2015.
In addition, The Camping and Caravanning Club will be offering expert tuition to visitors who can learn how to tow a caravan safely and efficiently and discover more about touring abroad with their Worldwide Escapes presentations.
Later on, visitors will be able to visit the Food & Travel Stage to see Simon Reeve, Charley Boorman and Martin Dorey from ‘One Man and His Campervan’ cook up their favourite dishes and tell tales from their many adventures.
The Show Director, Sam North said: “We’re hoping to build on the success of last year’s show and deliver the best show to date.
“The 2015 event boasts something for people of all ages; the return of Great Days Out will provide entertainment for all the family, while those on the hunt for a new caravan or motorhome can browse the extensive collection of the latest models.”
