Podcast 107: PRVCA’s Heather Leach on Hershey Show

Fusion June 2016 160x600HERSHEY, Pa. — The guest on this week’s podcast is Heather Leach, the executive vice president of the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association and the mastermind responsible for coordinating America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pa.

She talks a lot about the Consumer Days at this year’s show and what people can expect when they come out to the event Sept. 14 to 18. She also touches on Industry Days, which is underway today and tomorrow.

Leach also delves into how the show started and evolved from a simple event at the Farm Center in Harrisburg to a mega event in Hershey. She’ll explain why she believes the event is so popular year after year.

There aren’t a lot of staff members working at the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association, so the fact that small team can pull of such a big, successful event year after year is a testimony to Heather’s leadership.

The Hershey Show isn’t all about selling RVs like some RV shows tend to be. This event is heavily focused on education and training, too. There are dozens of seminars scheduled throughout the week to help people buy the right RVs, use their RVs, find places to visit in their RVs, and finance not only the purchase, but the adventure through work camping.

People who visit the Hershey show’s will find a coupon for discounted admission and information about special days like senior day, veterans day and a half-off twilight pass for admission after 3 p.m.

By visiting the website, they’ll also find a complete schedule of seminars and events and a list of all the exhibitors.

    Thanks to all who put the Hershey Show together each year. Great for the industry and for Rvers!

    Doesn’t matter if you are in the industry or someone just thinking about enjoying the RVing lifestyle … this show will educate you.

    At Starbucks this morning a lady asked about my shirt and if I was here for the show. Of course I was:) We had an awesome conversation about her family and their desire to get started with a small tow behind. She’s amp’d up and looking forward to attending the show on Saturday with her husband.
