The annual RV Aftermarket Conference, scheduled to take place August 10 – 13 at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay in San Diego, is a three-day event where suppliers and distributors in the RV industry will meet to develop their strategies for expanding their business in the coming year. The conference, open to all RV Industry Association members, allows one-on-one "appointment sessions" between RV suppliers and distributors while also providing many social opportunities to learn vital business information from those who have a record of success in the industry.

  • Get a first-look at the latest products and services in the Aftermarket segment before the fall/winter RV shows.
  • Learn vital business information while networking with colleagues from around the country who have a record of success in the industry.
  • Hear from thought-leaders on the state of the industry and discuss opportunities for future growth.
  • Learn the latest aftermarket consumer buying research from the RV Industry Association.

**The RV Industry Association is in constant communication with the area Convention Visitors Bureau, the host hotel as well as the RV Aftermarket Committee and Task Force regarding the ongoing situation at both the national and local levels. We will be diligent placing the safety and security of attendees and staff as the top priority and will be facilitating measures that will ensure optimal health and sanitary conditions for everyone onsite.
