Caravanning and mobile leisure in general continues to experience a real boom. Caravanning is casting its spell upon more and more new individuals and families too. So this year, StarterWorld is showcasing the rental theme to encourage and support new enthusiasts..
Freedom, independence, proximity to nature and, above all, a desire to get to know unknown regions and cities continue to be the ingredients that make this way of holiday-making so fascinating.
World’s most comprehensive ranges for mobile holidays
CARAVAN SALON is the major industry event of the caravanning scene, offering visitors a programme that is second to none. More than 600 exhibitors show 130-plus caravan and motorhome brands as well as over 2,100 leisure vehicles at the largest international trade fair for motorhomes and caravans. 13 halls as well as an outdoor exhibition space cover an overall exhibition area of 214,000 m².
The public trade fair is unique in offering visitors a complete market overview, new products and innovations for the upcoming season as well as an amazing supporting programme and promotions for the whole family. Besides motor homes, caravans and basic vehicles, accessories, technical equipment, detachable parts, awnings, campsites, trailer parks as well as travel destinations all await visitors.
Unique range of vehicles, innovations and trends
Everything is represented from compact and clever to spacious and luxurious. Everyone with an interest in caravanning can find the matching vehicle. Van conversions and partially integrated motorhomes are particularly popular as entry-level models because they are also good for everyday use. Luyury motorhomes continue to experience very high popularity.
CARAVAN SALON will also again set the stage for the premiere of several technical innovations. Electronic tools that facilitate ease of use of the vehicles and increase their comfort levels are trending. The ongoing networking of various devices allows for digital level gauges for water tanks, etc. as well as the control of furnaces, air-conditioning and hot water supply via a central service panel or an app.
