RVIA Participates in China Recreation Show

(Reston, VA., September, 2007) RVIA President Richard Coon and Vice President of Standards and Education Bruce Hopkins traveled to Shanghai, China in August to attend the inaugural China Sports and Recreation Show (CSR).

The event was a joint effort between the Chinese government and the country’s burgeoning recreation industry targeting businesses in the sporting goods, recreational sports, leisure travel and related industries.

Coon and Hopkins spoke at an RV Forum during the event, detailing the history and outlook for the RV industry in the United States. They also applauded the efforts to organize the show.

“I am thrilled to be part of China’s first recreation show,” Coon said. “Like the United States, I believe that China is a terrific country to discover by RVing. This show represents the launch of a very profitable business arena for Chinese RV manufacturers and a whole new world of outdoor recreation activities for the Chinese people.”

In addition to attending the show, Coon and Hopkins met with national and city government officials, Chinese RV manufacturers and suppliers, and the CSR organizing committee.

RVIA is now exploring conducting a trade mission to China in the near future in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Commerce.

A detailed report from the trip will be given to the RVIA Board of Directors at their September meeting.
