After the first half of CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF (26 August to 3 September 2017) exhibitors and organisers can look back on outstanding results: “Manufacturers report very avid interest on the part of visitors and brisk business; the models on display are clearly going down exceedingly well. Until the end of Wednesday, we registered 130.000 visitors, which translates as 18 percent more than last year at the same point in time. This means the increase registered over the first weekend was also confirmed on the weekdays,” explains Stefan Koschke, Director of CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF. He adds that the number of first-time visitors increased yet again over the previous year.
