Top 5 Reasons to Join Us

Professional Development

Working in a small to medium business can be isolating and without exposure to a variety of points of view, it’s easy to miss new ideas and trends that can impact business results.  The educational opportunities provided at the National Conference can expose you to new ways of conducting your business and help you discover how to be more productive. No matter how experienced you are, there’s always something to learn in today’s changing business environment.

Network with your Peers

The National Conference provides the best opportunity for industry-wide national networking.  Similar businesses from other regions of the country can become valuable resources for referrals and best-practice innovations.  Collaboration is the best way to approach networking because avoiding your peers for fear of others discovering your competitive advantage can actually limit your own success.  You’ll find that most people love to share their ideas and inspire each other once they develop a personal connection.

Develop New Business Relationships

You won’t want to shy away from the trade show at the National Conference!  The industry suppliers you’ll encounter are some of the best people to speak to if you want to learn more about the current business climate.  They’ll clue you in to the innovative products and services that can help your business stay competitive in today’s fast-paced world.  These aren’t your average salespeople, they are already selling to our industry and fully grasp what your competition is doing.  You’ll want to invest some time with exhibitors at this event and turn them into friends and allies.

Position Yourself as an Expert

Experts in their field are always active in their industry, and the National Conference is a forum where you can develop your reputation as an expert with your peers and clients.  Industry experts are often asked to speak at conference events and write articles for industry publications, and people respect leaders in their field.  Clients want to do business with you and your peers want to associate with you. You don’t want to be the best-kept secret in your business community – you want the valuable opportunities available to active industry participants.

Have fun!

Business is meant to be rewarding … and fun!  All work and no play gets really old, really fast.  Caravan Industry Association of Australia Industry takes great care to incorporate social activities into the National Conference because this adds a layer of enjoyment to this important business event. You can look forward to activities such as a ‘Beach Party’ casual dinner, the Gala Dinner, partner events and special luncheons, adding a little fun while you mix with interesting people.  You can even maximise the investment in your travel by taking an extra day at the beginning or end of the National Conference to explore the region by participating in one of the arranged tours.

The Caravan Industry Association of Australia National Conferences just keep getting bigger and better! We believe this is a positive reflection on our diverse and growing industry, so save the date and join us for this important annual event.
