Caravan & Camping Industry Association NSW to take over Canberra’s Home and Leisure show in 2019
The Caravan & Camping Industry Association NSW (CCIA) has concluded negotiations which will see it take over the operation of the Canberra Home and Leisure Show from October 2019 onwards.
CCIA will re-brand the event to become the Caravan Camping Outdoor Lifestyle Expo Canberra and the inaugural ACT Expo will take place from Friday 25th – Sunday 27th October next year.
The expo will be staged at Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC), a facility with plenty of indoor and outdoor exhibition space and on-site camping accommodation.
The expo taps into a large market of outdoor active enthusiasts in Canberra and the surrounding areas – including major regional centres such as Wagga Wagga, the Southern Highlands and the NSW South Coast.
CCIA President Theo Whitmont says “This is a fantastic strategic opportunity to reinvigorate an existing event and turn it into an outstanding showcase for our industry. It’s all about continuing to drive consumer demand for the products and experiences our industry offers and delivering new business opportunities for our members”.
More information about the 2019 event will be released in the coming months. The existing show organisers will continue to operate the Canberra Home and Leisure Show in 2018.
