The North Carolina RV Dealers Association (NCRVDA) said it is cancelling its Charlotte show, scheduled for Sept. 18-20.
Two weeks ago, the organization announced that its Raleigh show, scheduled for the end of August, was also canceled.
“Based on the current number of COVID-19 cases increasing in North Carolina, along with Gov. Cooper’s decision to delay implementation of Phase 3 to beyond Aug. 7, 2020, we feel it is the best decision at this time,” said Eric Burg, CEO of Apple Rock Advertising & Promotion, Inc., show promoter and founder of the NCRVDA RV Show. “Our No. 1 priority is to support our local communities, RV families, dealers and staff. We feel it is not socially responsible at this time to hold a largely attended RV show under these circumstances and we look forward to the 2021 show season.”
At this time, the NCRVDA and Apple Rock plan to move forward with the 2021 RV Show season scheduled to kick-off January 2021. “We are working hard to add additional precautions for the 2021 show season to ensure the safety and enjoyment of our attendees and our vendors.” said Jeff Haughton, director of events and sponsorships. “We look forward to welcoming back all our RV fans in January and plan to provide the same high-quality show we are known for.”
