The RV Industry Association's annual industry conference focused on the RV aftermarket segment will be back in Atlanta, August 9-12, 2021.
During the event suppliers and distributors meet in one-on-one "appointment sessions" to pitch new products while taking advantage of key networking opportunities. In addition to networking with colleagues with a proven track record in the industry, attendees will hear from thought-leaders on the state of the RV industry. And with the latest RV Industry Association economic impact study finding the RV aftermarket contributes 3,187 jobs, $272 million dollars in wages and over $750 million in total economic output on a yearly basis, the event is the perfect opportunity to develop strategies for expanding the market segment and discuss opportunities for future growth.
The conference, focusing on supporting a great parts and accessory purchasing experience that will benefit supply chain members and the RV consumer, is open to all RV Industry Association members.
