2019 Caravan, Camping, 4WD and Outdoor Shows across Australia

Australians love caravan and camping holidays, so it is no surprise that there are a number of shows and exhibitions around the country. These events are fantastic for visitors to see everything the industry has to offer in one place! Plus you often get fantastic special offers, competitions, demonstrations, speaking events, and seminars if you want to learn more about camping and caravanning. 

For exhibitors, these events are ideal for getting your products or services in front of people who are enthusiastic about caravanning and/or camping. It is also a great opportunity to launch new products as you have a ready-made audience. Camplify attends many of these shows for people interested in learning more about how Camplify works. We'll keep you updated via our Facebook page and emails as to which shows we attend.
