The RV Industry Association's annual industry conference focused on the RV aftermarket segment kicks off August 9-12 in Atlanta, Georgia. And to get your access, you must be a member of the RV Industry Association.
The conference’s focus is to support a great parts and accessory purchasing experience for consumers that will ultimately benefit and improve the RV aftermarket supply chain as a whole. A core segment of the event is when Aftermarket suppliers and distributors meet during one-on-one "appointment sessions" to pitch new products and review their current offerings, however, the event is also the perfect opportunity for engaged aftermarket brands to come together to develop strategies and discuss opportunities for expanding the overall market segment.
Beyond the access to register and attend the RV Aftermarket Conference, membership in the RV Industry Association provides aftermarket companies with access to research, resources, and reports unavailable anywhere else. But even more importantly, membership means having the expertise of a talented group of standards, government affairs, research, and marketing professionals who serve as an extension of your own staff.
The RV Industry Association is the leading trade voice of the $114 billion dollar RV industry, representing approximately 450 manufacturers and component and aftermarket suppliers who together produce 98 percent of all RVs made in the United States, and approximately 60 percent of RVs produced worldwide. The RV Industry Association is the collective voice of the industry and functions as three main pillars:
- RV Industry Association Signature Programs: Consisting of self-regulation and industry standards, state, federal, and international advocacy, events, media relations, and market data insights and trends.
- Go RVing: Reaching millions of potential new RV consumers each year, Go RVing is charged with attracting new consumers to RVing and conducting consumer research and insights. Go RVing’s research and innovative campaigns ensure that the appeal of RVing is shared with a growing and diverse audience that is primed to be your future customer.
- RV Technical Institute: With the mission to improve the RV Consumer experience and grow the pool of trained RV service technicians, the RV Technical Institute has the only industry-wide certification and is the gold standard when it comes to RV tech training.
While these three pillars work together to promote, protect and position the RV industry for future growth, the RV Industry Association wouldn’t be much of anything without our members.
