Caravan Salon 2023 hailed as ‘inspiring’ by organisers

After more attracting an attendance of 254,000 from 65 different countries, the 2023 edition of Caravan Salon Düsseldorf has been hailed as a success and a show that ‘inspires the community’ by organisers.

More than 750 exhibitors from 37 countries showed their innovations and current models in 16 exhibition halls as well as the outdoor area. On more than 250,000 square meters, leisure vehicles of all sizes and price ranges, mobile homes, awnings and roof tents were on display. Accessories, technical equipment and extension parts were very popular with the entire caravanning friends. In addition, visitors could plan their next trip or holiday individually at the stands of the camping and motorhome sites and at the destinations.

Newly elected president of the German Caravanning Industry Association, Bernd Löher, said: “Many visitors, a very good atmosphere and unrivalled product variety. This is how people know and appreciate Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf. As a sector we can consider ourselves very luckily because such a positive trade fair result cannot be taken for granted in view of the tight economic situation and is an extremely positive impulse for the caravanning industry. With this, Caravan Salon once again reinforces its importance as a leading trade fair and beacon for our industry.

"My special praise goes to all exhibitors, who – despite difficult circumstances – again set new standards in terms of product quality and diversity. The wealth of innovations in vehicles, accessories, and services is and will remain the hallmark of Caravan Salon. Though it should not be forgotten that not only the products but also all aspects of caravanning have long since been given a big stage in Düsseldorf. This is why I am very proud that we were again able to welcome many personalities from business, science and political spheres to Düsseldorf. When high political dignitaries such as Minister Mona Neubaur or Minister Oliver Krischer pay a visit to our trade fair, this is an indication that caravanning receives the attention it deserves as a tourism and economic factor. However, this is only the beginning of CIVD’s work and the newly elected board will continue to commit to promoting the economic and tourist potential of our form of holiday ever further.”
