As restrictions continue to ease and we begin to see some events coming back to life in Queensland, we want to explore what it actually means to be labelled an ‘Official Industry Event’ in the caravanning world.
An Official Industry Event is one that is owned and operated by the Caravanning Industry. Every exhibitor displaying recreational vehicles at an Industry Event in Queensland must supply a signed compliance certification to the Industry Association. This is a declaration stating that all vehicles on display fully comply with all applicable Australian Design Rules (ADRs).
In addition to this declaration, all products are also subject to extensive compliance checks by Caravan Industry Association of Australia Technical Officers before the opening of each event. These requirements and initiatives are unique to Official Industry Events and provide guests with a certain level of confidence and assurance through the purchasing process.
Another great drawcard of an Official Industry Event is that they boast a more diverse range of products than non-industry events. These are the only caravanning events where all major Recreational Vehicle brands are represented. This is largely due to the fact that nearly all exhibitors are members of a Caravan Industry Association. Members of these associations must pass a thorough application process before being accepted, ensuring that you are buying from the best and most qualified dealers and distributors at these shows!
As well as the peace of mind you will have when purchasing, there is also the guarantee that you will be dealing with only the most experienced experts in the Caravanning Industry!
Official Industry Events provide opportunities for guests to have direct contact with industry experts, who host educational seminars providing participants with highly valuable safety tips and caravanning knowledge. Whether it be towing, vehicle weight, cooking tips, or just expert insider information, these are opportunities that are unique to an Official Industry Event.
*Whilst every effort is taken to ensure compliance, this cannot be guaranteed on every product.
