Registration open for 2019 National Conference

< Date: 19 February 2019

2019 National Conference Early Bird Special

The premier national event for the Australian Caravanning and Camping Industry was officially launched this week.

Run by Caravan Industry Association of Australia, the National Conference is now in its 24th year and will be held at The Star Hotel and Casino on the Gold Coast from May 15-17, 2019.

The Caravan Industry National Conference is always an exciting event, and 2018 was our largest in history with record numbers of both exhibitors and attendees. 

In 2019, we are taking it even further to make sure this year will be bigger and better than ever, starting with opening the doors earlier to allow attendees more time to make the most of the event! This year, the Conference will officially be open from 3.30pm on the Wednesday, with attendees welcome to mingle and explore the trade booths before the official welcome cocktail drinks.

The Conference will again welcome key decision makers, innovators, and influencers from across the industry for presentations, panel discussions and more.

There will also be some innovative new additions along with fantastic options for partners and kids, so the whole family can come along!

Book your tickets now to take advantage of early-bird prices.
