Industry Trade Shows Remain Fixed for 2014
While advising no changes to the existing schedules for the National RV Trade Show or the RV Dealers International Convention/Expo, the Committee also recommended that the RV Industry Association (RVIA) and the RV Dealers Association (RVDA) continue to gather more information from industry stakeholders about the timing of industry events.
The RVIA Board of Directors indicated in June it would consider moving the National RV Trade Show to a late September/early October timeframe in 2014. The RVDA Board of Directors said it would also consider moving its event to later in the year to accommodate the move.
“In the near term, it became clear that we need more information from manufacturers, dealers, and suppliers concerning the industry event calendar before entering into any agreement to change the dates of the National RV Trade Show,” said Gregg Fore, RVIA chairman of the Board.
“Both organizations agree that facility and program commitments mean moving the dates for RVDA and RVIA events is not possible at this time,” said Andy Heck, RVDA chairman of the Board.
