Caravan shows are more than just an industry highlight. They are a place where everyone comes together to see what's new, meet like minded people and plan their future holidays by looking at both new vehicles and destinations to visit around the globe. Now Scotland's largest exhibition is making a grand return to Glasgow from 8-11 February 2018.

The Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show, will once again be sponsored by Scotland's leading motorhome dealer BC Motorhomes. The show will take over the entire SEC in Glasgow once more to welcome over 200 exhibitors and outdoor experts across the four day leisure event. For anyone is Scotland who has a passion for the outdoors this show is the place to be.

The 2018 event is poised to be bigger than ever with an even bigger family camping area, more accessories and hundreds of models, layout and specifications all in one place. Not only is this event great for the season staycationer but it's the perfect launching point for all new comers to the industry.

Jamie Taylor, Group Show Director QD Events, said: "With more people than ever before choosing holidaying at home over travelling abroad, the show is the ideal place for visitors to learn about the new adventures on offer on their doorstep, and further afield in Scotland and the UK.

"With record visitors to the show last year we anticipate even more visitors in February. There truly is something for everyone, from those who already have an interest in the outdoors, to first timers.

"The Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show is a must-stop destination for all outdoor lovers and we are delighted that BC Motorhomes are joining us as sponsors again this year. With so many exhibitors, exclusive visitor only deals and expert advice all in one place it shouldn't be missed."

The show will be highlighting the first sightings of brand new 2018 models from a variety different holiday types such as luxury lodges, eco pods and holiday homes. There will be big brands on display such as Airstream, Swift Elddis, Lunar, Bailey, Roller Team and Rapido. There really is something for everyone at the show.

Back by popular demand, visitors will also be able to purchase the 'must have' tents and accessories for their outdoor adventures at the Accessory Superstore. On show will be marine products including jet skis and dinghies, as well as other marine accessories.

On top of all the great brands and products on display guests will also be able to wander through the Holiday Park Village where staff will be on hand to provide advice and offer suggestions to make sure their caravanning experiences is the best it can be.

In addition, a number of clubs, associations and holiday parks will be there to help you pick out your next destination whilst free caravan towing or motorcaravan maneuvering sessions are on offer from the Caravan & Motorhome Club.
