Barry Baillie, CEO of the Caravan and Camping Industry Association of NSW said that visitor numbers totalled 78,192 over the nine day event which was slightly up on 2008 figures.
"Caravan and camping tourism has been growing for over 10 years and we are encouraged that strong attendance figures at the show this year are differentiating our industry from other tourism sectors that may be feeling the effects of the economic slump", Barry Baillie said.
"Camper trailers and camping products were popular purchases at the show this year with families keen to get into the holiday mode. Families with children between the ages of two and 15 years were interested in the campers for holidays".
