New Venue Adds To Show Success

New Venue Adds To Show Success

Already regarded as New Zealand’s favourite Motorhome Show, the Camper Care NZ Motorhome & Caravan Show, has been heralded a huge success with its move to Mystery Creek Events Centre over the weekend.

Over 15,000 visitors attended the 3 day show at its new location with over 600 motorhomes (an increase of nearly 30% compared to last year’s event) taking advantage of the free of charge Top 10 rally over event weekend.

Event Organiser, Michele Connell says “It was great to see the huge support of existing motorhome owners who embraced the opportunity of making a weekend of it at the Top 10 Rally, and also the thousands of other visitors taking in the wealth of lifestyle choice options on offer by exhibitors at the show”.

A number of new additions to the show added to the shows atmosphere which included nightly entertainment options attended by over 500 people across Friday and Saturday night, as well as the likes of the Walk Down Memory Lane classic caravan display where many show goers took time out to reminisce on their caravanning adventures of days gone by.

Michele also comments “We’d like to thank everyone involved for making this one of our most successful shows ever including our wonderful exhibitors, valued event partners, along with our new venue providers - Mystery Creek Events Centre - and of course all our show visitors. We look forward to again showcasing the best in Motorhomes, Caravans and Outdoor Adventure next year”.
