Adventures Group Agency launches iconic Camper event with record numbers after COVID delays
Adventures Group Holdings (AGH), the publisher of Camper Australia officially launched the 2021 Camper trailer of the year - Powered by REDARC competition after delaying the event from 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The event this year will be taking place in Port Macquarie, NSW. Adventures Group has partnered with the Port Maquarie-Hastings council to host the event and have been working alongside each other to bring this event to the region for the past 2 years. After originally planning on having the event there in late 2019, however needing to relocate due to the devastating bushfires in the area, then needing to again postpone due to COVID-19.
“We are so excited to finally be able to visit the Port Macquarie region. After the bushfires ran through the area in late 2019, we made a commitment to the region that we would bring this event to the town to not only help showcase what an amazing destination it is, but to also aid in the bushfire recovery” AGH General Manager Chris Jefferson commented.
This year's event will have a record level of entrants participating, with currently 23 Camper trailers in attendance from 16 different manufacturers. Each camper will go through a range of testing and judging in and around the Port Macquarie region, with awards being presented via Camper Magazine in the April-June editions.
AGH Content Director, Tim van Duyl added, "The event is a great way for consumers to see what innovations the Camper Trailer market is making and what products are currently in the market. With so much diversity in the market, we get to test our entry level trailers right through to $100,000 plus Hybrid Campers."
AGH will also create a range of Rich media for participants that will be able to be used in marketing campaigns to promote their brands and products, as well as content to showcase the region and surrounding area as a great tourism destination.
There will be a “Showcase” event held at the Westport Park in Port Macquarie on Saturday February 27th from 10am till 2pm. This will be a chance for locals and people from further afield to come together and view all 23 Campers that will be taking part in the event, as well as stands from REDARC electronics and other partners as well as some food and market stalls.
