Pre-planning  streamlines super-size Melbourne Supershow  for easy access

A year ago Peter May, President of the Caravan Industry Association Victoria foreshadowed plans to handle the amazing growth of Melbourne's Caravan and Camping Supershow when it hit its 60th year.

He told GoSee that the Caulfield Racecourse based show had reached exhibitor capacity and that CIAVic was moving to make the six-day Caulfield caravan and camping show a better more accessible experience for showgoers.

And that is what has happened. The 60th show has 43,000 square metres of the latest products from the caravan and camping industry.

The 60th Anniversary Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow from March 6 to 11 is easier to get to and around than ever before. For the first time, there will be free parking at Caulfield Racecourse for the duration of the show. There are Shuttle Buggies to help people get around the show faster, plus a brand new Vic Shows smartphone app to help find show exhibitors fast .

For the first time, multi-day and VIP tickets are available, enabling visitors express entry to the show for three days as well as a VIP show bag and lanyard, complimentary tea and coffee, morning or afternoon tea and a VIP relaxation area.

Tickets are now on sale for the Supershow through www.caravanshow.com.au.

We began in 1954 with only a handful of exhibitors at our first show. From there we continually outgrew our locations, from our original site at the now Arts Centre site on St Kilda Road, to the Royal Exhibition Centre in Carlton, then to MCEC and now Caulfield Racecourse with over 420 exhibitors, Peter May said.

As an industry with a strong manufacturing base and employing over 5000 people, contributing over $1.4 billion to the Victorian economy, we continue to create wonderful opportunities for people to tour our great state and country, he said.
