Catch up at with Adventures Group CEO, Rob Gallagher at CTOTY

In November Kate Mitchell caught up with Rob Gallagher, CEO of the Adventures Group, at their Camper Trailer of the Year awards (CTOTY) held at Mt Warning.

While Kate was there she got to meet some of the more adventurous demographics in the camping industry which was a lot of fun as the conversation inevitably turned towards the best places to take your 4×4 and most spectacular camping spots to visit in Australia.

It also didn’t take her long to identify a clear trend of camper business start-ups being inspired by a family holiday and resulting in a custom built top-of-the-line camper trailer intended solely to make their holidays more adventurous and more luxurious. The camper trailers she saw at the awards all had easy set ups, amazing battery power, drive well on and off road, and have pretty modern and luxurious fittings, she imagines judging will be tough.

It also got Kate pretty pumped for her own camper travel Adventures trip planned for 2018, as she sussed out all the new technologies and off-road drive tips from the leaders in this space.

It was a busy couple of days so Kate was lucky to pull Rob aside for 5 minutes, and managed to get an insight into his world. They discuss his transition from working for Bauer media to creating the Adventures Group, his experience entering the Future Leaders award this year, and he finishes off with some valuable advice for new comers to the industry.
