Over 75,000 attendees flooded the gates of the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida, to view 2 million square feet of RV displays from Jan. 17-21.
RV SuperShow attendance was down around 5% compared with the 2023 show attendance but ranks as the third-highest total in Florida RV SuperShow history. The 2022 show drew over 84,000 attendees with 79,000 consumers attending in 2023.
Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA) Executive Director Dave Kelly reported a positive show.
“From talking with just about everybody,” Kelly said, “they were extremely happy with the results.”
Kelly said Industry Day revealed new products and higher attendance than usual. Suppliers reported running out of brochures and re-ordering products because of high sales.
Kelly said factors contributing to lower attendance rate were the election year, high interest rates and raised gas prices.
Anniversary festivities are in store as the event celebrates 40 years at SuperShow 2025.
For the 40th anniversary, FRVTA wants “to thank the exhibitors that have been with us the whole time,” Kelly said. “Now we are looking forward to a real big event next year.”
