Great response to Inverurie caravan and camping show

Organisers of a major new Scottish leisure event being held at Inverurie are delighted by the response they have had so far.

The ANM Group at Thainstone say the Scottish Caravan & Camping Show 2011, featuring the Grampian Outdoor Leisure Show, is the first of what will be an annual event on the UK show circuit.

Major manufacturers and dealers from across the UK are taking part in the event at the Thainstone Centre on Friday June 17 and Saturday June 18.

A rally campsite at Thainstone is being set up for the event and has already taken bookings from Shetland to Ayrshire with live evening entertainment organised for the visitors.

The aim is to have a fun show for all the family which also offers all the latest and best ideas on how to enjoy the great outdoors. John Gregor of the ANM Group said: “We are really encouraged by the reaction we have had from firms across the UK about coming to this show.

“They have all said there is a real need for an event like this in the North-east of Scotland and with holidays at home back in fashion, we are anticipating a very good attendance.”

One of Scotland’s best known caravan dealers, Dyce Caravans, is the main show sponsor and will have all the latest models and motorhomes on display.

All the major dealers in the North-east are taking part including Dee Valley, Turriff, Hitch-On and S&D Harper. Honda dealer Ewen’s of Cornhill are the show’s motor sponsor with a selection of towing vehicles.

With more than 11 million people expected to go on a caravan or camping holiday in the UK during 2011, there has never been a better time to showcase all the latest equipment, caravans and motorhomes available on the market.
