Ok, so let me start by saying that I was totally unprepared for just how large the Salon is. CaravanTimes have visited the Dusseldorf show before but this was my first time and I was blown away by just how much there is to see and do. So we decided to give anyone visiting, or thinking of visiting, a little look into what is on offer.

Having been to the NEC shows as well as other expos around the UK I can safely say that the Salon might just be the most impressive. There really is something for everyone no matter what your interests are. If you are into the touring holiday lifestyle there is nothing here that will not be of interest.

While I was there I noticed just how many things there were for children to do. Due to the sheer size of the show it would be quite easy for the little ones to get fatigued by the walking around. There are soft play areas, entertainment and even a creche. So take the kids as I am sure they will have as much, if not more, fun than you do.

So if you have never been to the show have a read of our articles and watch the videos we made while we were there and get a feel of just how easy getting to and staying at the Salon actually is. On top of that we want to highlight just how great touring is on the continent.
