NCC confirms ExCeL show cancelled

The Motorhome, Caravan and Camping Show made its London debut in 2012, however the National Caravan Council (NCC) has confirmed that it will not return to the capital city in 2013.

More than 43,000 enthusiasts attended the event this year, which was held at the ExCeL, but organisers took the decision not to return to London due to logistics. The NCC planned to expand the show for its second outing, however it felt the venue was not suited to the build-up and break down needs of an larger number of exhibitors.

Other criticisms of the ExCeL were charges associated with its location within a Low Emission Zone and a lack of on-site camping facilities.

Caravanners will still be able to get their early show fix, however, at two major events on the outdoor leisure calendar: the Motorhome & Caravan Show will be held in Manchester from 17th-20th January before the Spring Camping & Caravan Show takes place at Birmingham’s NEC on 19th-24th February.

Coast will be attending both these shows but if you can’t wait until 2013 for your caravan insurance or motorhome insurance quotation then call us today on Freephone 0800 614 849.
