The Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA) will host the 34th Annual Florida RV SuperShow, Tuesday, Jan. 15 through Sunday, Jan. 20. The show will again be held at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Fla.
New this year is an interactive map that allows exhibitors to highlight their location in the show and send that information to prospective clients. This interactive map is also available on a new FRVTA app so attendees can use the map on their mobile devices while at the show. Using the “I Am Here” feature of the map, exhibitors can spotlight their location and then forward it to attendees.
SuperShow attendees will also be able to search the map by company name or product category.
“We felt this makes attending the SuperShow much easier for those people that are coming to shop a specific product, RV category or find a certain company,” said Show Director Lesa Colvin. “We want exhibitors to download the app and get familiar with the new map so they can generate more leads at the show. This will also allow them to help the attendees use the map in the future.”
Tuesday, Jan. 15, will be Industry Day, during which anyone involved in the RV industry can attend the show free of charge. For more information, click here.
