“We believe this will be exciting news for supplier exhibitors, not only for opportunity to rub shoulders with many of their RV manufacturer customers, but also to show their latest innovations and products to the thousands of dealers attending the event,” RV/MH Heritage Foundation President Darryl Searer says.

Searer says 100 8-by-10 foot booths will be available on a first come first served basis in Ingram Hall. The foundation is currently taking reservations for these spaces.

“What’s special for suppliers as well as booth visitors is that the supplier exhibits will be comfortably indoors—free from inclement weather, wind, rain storms, heat or cold,” Searer says. “Weather in Northern Indiana this time of year is highly unpredictable, so exhibitors can be assured their display booths will be safe and comfortable. Plus, we also have adequate convenient parking onsite.

Searer says RV dealers will continue to receive free admission to the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum which will take them directly past the front door of Ingram Hall and the supplier exhibits.

Suppliers who reserve booths prior to April 30 will receive a substantial discount off booth rental fees. They will also receive their preferred location in the show.
