Not that any of us need that much motivation to pack the van and head out for another adventure, but why not go head to one of the most beautiful parts of the UK for a holiday and pop into the Love Touring Expo held at P&J Live from October 25-27.

Scotland's newest caravan and motorhome show is to pitch up at the North-east's brand new event complex and arena P&J Live. The £333 million development opens this summer, with 48,000 sqm of flexible exhibition space.

Thousands of visitors are expected to attend the Love Touring Expo over the weekend of October 25-27, 2019, which will offer free activities and entry for children.

The show will feature the very latest caravans, motorhomes and campervans from all the major brands, offering an exclusive first chance to see the new models for 2020.

An accessory superstore and trade stands will sell all the latest gadgets and gizmos, from cooking equipment and awnings to furniture and portable TVs - many of which are not available locally.

The three-day event will also celebrate the North-east of Scotland, with a dedicated area showcasing food and drinks which are produced locally.

The Expo aims to inspire caravan and motorhome enthusiasts planning their new adventure, with exhibits on campsites, holiday parks and visitor attractions in north Scotland, including the North East 250.

The team behind Love Touring Expo has many years of experience of organising caravan and motorhome consumer shows.

Organiser Colin Redpath said: "We are excited to bring the first Love Touring Expo to P&J Live in October. Visitors over the three days will have the chance to see the latest models from all the major brands, while taking advantage of exclusive deals and show-only offers.

"As well as many different trade stands and exhibitions, there is a huge focus on all that makes the North and North-east of Scotland unique, from food and drink from the local larder to exciting holiday ideas, interesting new routes and inspiring parks and places to stay.

"The Love Touring Expo is a must-do for any caravan and motorhome fan but we also expect to appeal to families looking for a fun day out or people who have opted for a 'staycation' next year and want to have the freedom to explore more of Scotland, travelling wherever they fancy with the help of a map or a smartphone."

Recent research suggests an increasing trend towards fluid itinerary travel, with a desire to tour Scotland with no fixed itinerary, particularly among young adults and groups of friends.

Further research by The Great British Staycation also suggests millennials are the most likely age group to holiday in the UK this year, with more than half (52%) of 25 to 34-year olds more likely to do so than in 2018.

Colin added: "We hope to inspire anyone of any age who is thinking about trying a caravan holiday or who fancies heading off on the open road in a motorhome or campervan, and we have ideas and options for every budget."

Claire-Lena Miller-Davis, Exhibition Sales Manager at P&J Live, said: "We are thrilled to continually attract more exhibitions to the North-East and are especially excited to bring a brand new exhibition Love Touring to P&J Live.

"This is the first time a caravan and motorhome show on this scale will have ever taken place in Aberdeen and that is most certainly due to the new venue.

"With 48,000 sqm of flexible exhibition space, it has allowed us to accommodate an exhibition of this size, which we expect to attract visitors from all over Scotland across the three days."

Advance tickets are on sale now, priced at £12 for adults, including free parking at P&J Live. Tickets are available from the Love Touring Expo website at www.lovetouringexpo.co.uk
