For people with a passion for caravans, attending a world class show is the ultimate excursion. The Jurgens team got to experience this firsthand this year, with factory management and various dealers members travelling to Düsseldorf for the annual Caravan Salon show. This was the 50th anniversary of the show, and saw more foot traffic than ever before – a real spectacle for the South African contingent.
This year’s Caravan Salon manifested a positive global market for the caravan industry. Visitors from various countries converged, and the result was the meeting of likeminded individuals in a venue that awed all in attendance. All present acknowledge caravans and motor homes as a premium holiday tool – a veritable ‘home away from home’ that can give owners certain creature comforts as they enjoy the outdoors.
It was against this backdrop that the guests from Jurgens got to traverse the immense stands and exhibits. As one of the top manufacturers and distributors of high quality caravans and trailers, Jurgens felt right at home amongst some of the top global traders in the industry. The show prides itself on the showcase of innovation, trends and sneak peeks into the caravans of the future. Owing to the sheer volume of caravans on show, the guys from Jurgens were inspired, and the all-round faith in their own products was reinforced as they compared their specialties alongside those of international standard.
The experience will continue to glitter in the memories of the Jurgens team. And of course it would – this is a group that approaches their work and anything related to caravans with fervour and the utmost devotion. They were in their element within a community of traders and enthusiasts that see mobile holidays as a lifestyle. Beyond the show itself, they were given an opportunity to see the sights of beautiful Düsseldorf and take part in the activities the organisers arranged; all of which contributed to making this a wholly successful and markedly memorable experience.
