THOUSANDS of people packed out the Caravan and Motorhome Show at EventCity, Manchester last week.

The event which ran from Thursday to Sunday had lots on offer for potential caravanners and motorhome users as well as seasoned tourers.

Among the main attractions on the opening day included: 2018 Great British Bake Off contestant, Karen Wright, creating a showstopper of a caravan cake.

Taking up almost the entire 28,000 sqm space at EventCity, exhibitors will showcase motorhomes, tents, awnings and lodges alongside a diverse selection of accessories and inspiring destinations, the show is set to inspire attendees looking to travel more in 2020.

Show Director, Rob Debenham said: "The Caravan & Motorhome Show 2020, at EventCity, Manchester, has opened the new season with a bang.

"Visitor numbers were up year on year and many were excited to take part in the onsite activities such as Motorhome Manoeuvring or The Towing Experience.

"This year the show presented more tents and awnings than ever before, fantastic new season 2020 models and a world exclusive launch of a brand new Holiday Home, meaning visitors were treated to some of the finest products the market has to offer.

"Our commitment to the show in Manchester is unwavering, this part of the county is steeped in beauty and the Caravanners and Motorhomers that flock to the event use it as a springboard to their year of travelling. It’s fantastic to help inspire and guide their travels throughout the year.

"We look forward to seeing them all and many more visitors next year in January 2021, where plans are already in place for what will be our 10th anniversary show.”

Also at the same venue was the Destinations: The Holiday & Travel Show, the UK’s leading and longest-running travel event, with 200 brands on show.
