What’s it all about?

Live events have been postponed by the impact of the lockdown and its aftermath, but visit our Virtual Show and you’ll find plenty to enjoy!

This has been an eventful year in so many ways – from stormy weather to political turmoil and (of course) Covid-19, 2020 is a year that most of us will never forget.

It’s taken its toll on the caravan industry, too, as many manufacturers completely halted production during the lockdown, campsites were forced to close, and keen caravanners had to resign themselves to far too many months of being unable to get out on the road.

Many caravan and motorhome shows were also postponed or cancelled, which meant that it’s been more difficult for caravanners to see new models and products, and catch up on the latest industry trends and news, campsite information and more.

Read all about it

This is where Van Live! Caravan and Motorhome Virtual Show comes in. Visit the various halls and exhibitors right here from 12th to 18th October 2020 and you’ll be able to read all the latest news from manufacturers, find links to their new products, catch up with what’s been going on at campsites, get the lowdown on great new accessories and more – all from the comfort of your own home! What’s more, it’s completely free to visit, too.

And it’s not just about products; you’ll also find celebrity interviews (including a chat with Camping and Caravanning Club President Julia Bradbury), competitions, hints and tips, advice on technical matters, and much more.

You can even get your own goodie bag, containing downloadable content, special offers and brochures!
