RVIA Keeping Show Space Rates, Membership Costs in Check

(RESTON, Va.) Space rates for this year’s National RV Trade Show and California RV Show will be kept at 2007 levels as directed by the RVIA Board of Directors during their meeting on March 1 at the association’s Annual Meeting in Kona, Hawaii.

This action follows the association’s recent practice of keeping member costs in check. Membership dues and seal costs have been held at the same level since 2003. Additionally, the Go RVing assessment paid by RVIA members has not increased since 2005, and it was announced at the Annual Meeting that the decision on the funding level for the Phase V national advertising campaign has been tabled until this fall.

“We are trying to be sensitive to the current business environment by keeping association costs for members at current levels,” said RVIA President Richard Coon. “We pride ourselves on providing the best service in the most economically way possible.”

In other actions related to RVIA trade shows, the Board of Directors:
  • Extended RVIA’s contract with the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) to host the National RV Trade Show through 2012.
  • Capped the show space at the California RV Show at the 2007 level of 1.23 million net square feet.
  • Voted to exclude park trailers from the California RV Show and National RV Trade Show effective with the 2008 shows to maximize the space available to RVIA member companies.
  • Amended a requirement that RV manufacturers at the National RV Trade Show and the California RV Show that are not members of RVIA provide RVIA a statement from a third party agency that states the exhibitor’s units are produced in accordance with ANSI/NFPA standards and a description of that agency’s inspection certification programs.
  • Amended show rules to allow truck campers to remain attached to the pick-up trucks used to move the units into the exhibit hall.
  • Set the Fall 2009 Board of Directors meeting for Sept. 11-12 in Hershey, Pa.
