Border Caravan & Camping Expo provides Substantial Economic Contribution to Region!
The 2019 Border Caravan & Camping Expo is returning to the Border for its ninth year from Friday 23 – Sunday 25 August at the Wodonga Racecourse. Over the past eight years, the Caravan Industry Victoria has contributed $35,000 to local charities and not for profit organisations. On top of this, the economic contribution to Albury Wodonga and surrounding areas during this period is over hundreds of thousands from hiring local contractors, catering, accommodation, etc – the Association values our regional Victorian communities and by bringing our Expo to you, we can also support you while you support an industry that provides an economic contribution of $2.1 billion to the Victorian economy annually.
We encourage all to attend the 9th annual Border Caravan & Camping Expo, the official industry Expo that brings all of the latest in the caravan and camping lifestyle to the Border.
This year we have all the good things we’ve had before, plus great new initiatives to make it even better for our loyal patrons, exhibitors and the broader community. One thing’s for sure; this is the leading RV lifestyle show in North East Victoria and that has a lot to do with the beautiful venue, ample free parking and the impressive quality and variety of exhibits.
As always, the Border Caravan & Camping Expo has every type of caravan and RV on show, from budget-priced camper trailers, tent trailers and pop tops to luxurious motorhomes. We also have a vast array of camping, 4×4 accessories and specialist equipment to make the most of your next camping and caravanning holiday adventure.
The Caravan Industry Victoria’s Chief Executive Officer, Rob Lucas, stated “Caravan Industry Victoria is proud to be part of a State Industry that contributes 47% of the $4.5 billion to the Australian economy and employs over 6,600 Victorians in caravan manufacturing, retail, repair, and servicing. As an Association by delivering regional caravan and camping expo’s we also contribute financially to the broader community and other industries.
“With 90% of all Australian made recreational vehicles built in Victoria, our patrons are always guaranteed to see something new at the Expo.”
Above all, this expo is a great family day out, with free entry for children under 15 when accompanied by an adult, plus loads of free fun for littlies on the weekend. Much of this expo’s success is due to our great local partners, and I thank Wodonga Race Club, our media partners and the local businesses for their contributions.
Many of the Caravan Industry Victoria’s members have made a major effort to be part of this expo, with many showcasing new products for the first time. It means a lot to all of us to be made so welcome.
“I trust the annual Border Caravan & Camping Expo is an enjoyable day out for you and your family and don’t forget your pooch as we have a dog-friendly policy for the Expo, and I hope you find a bargain or two among the exhibits”
“I look forward to seeing you at the Expo – it’s the perfect place to go make some memories,” said Rob Lucas.
