RESTON, Va. — “Outlook 2014: Everywhere” will kick off the RV Industry Association’s 51st National RV Trade Show Dec. 3 with an energizing multi-media program that offers an overview of the industry’s successes over the past year as well as a look at the industry’s promising future.
The free event for registered attendees will begin at 7:30 a.m. with a breakfast in the KEC South Wing Mezzanine Ballroom. One of the most anticipated annual industry events with more than 1,000 RV dealers and show exhibitors expected to be on hand, “Outlook 2014” will entertain and inform attendees with fast-paced, insightful presentations, RVIA promised in a press release.
Hosted by RVIA Chairman of the Board Doug Gaeddert, “Outlook 2014: Everywhere” will feature RVIA President Richard Coon’s thoughts on the state of the industry and where it is headed in the year ahead in a presentation titled “Growing Everywhere.”
The industry’s Go RVing and public relations team will deliver “Seen Everywhere,” a multi-media report highlighting the most impactful advertising and public relations achievements in 2013 while previewing what’s in store for 2014. The presentation will feature Go RVing Co-Chairs Bob Wheeler and Tom Stinnett as well as RVIA Public Relations Committee Chairman B.J. Thompson and RVIA Vice President of Public Relations and Advertising James Ashurst.
Attendees will also hear from Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King, one of America’s premier pro football writers. King, who toured NFL training camps this year in a motorhome provided by Go RVing and Jayco, will share his thoughts on his RV adventure and provide an insider’s view of the NFL.
