RVIA hires dealer relations specialist for RVX

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — The first-ever RVX will bring the RV industry together in a venue where manufacturers and suppliers can unveil their latest RV products to their dealer partners, all under one roof.

The new show will also provide multiple layers of learning about emerging consumer trends, developing markets, and exploring how to better attract new consumers to the RV lifestyle and convert them into sales.

With any new event, there are many questions. To better connect with dealers and help answer questions about the upcoming event directly, the RV Industry Association (RVIA) has brought on a new Dealer Relations Specialist Dan Donati.

Donati has worked in the events industry his entire career. Out of college, he specialized in tradeshows and consumer events where he sold millions of dollars of exhibit space and sponsorships.

He’s worked with businesses in several industries including powersports, home entertainment, wood working, direct marketing and solar energy events.

As an RV enthusiast, Donati has taken his family and his fifth wheel from the beaches of California to the mountains and valleys of Keystone and Yellowstone National Park. He takes great pride in uncovering client needs and developing creative solutions.

Dealer registration for RVX opened October 1, and hotel registration information will be available in a few short weeks. Donati is currently reaching out to RV dealers across the country to answer questions about the event while encouraging them to check out what the RVIA is building in Salt Lake City. If you’re an RV dealer with questions about RVX or simply want to learn more, email ddonati@rvia.org to schedule a call.

    Ah, an example of the Emperor’s new clothes.

    RVIA was faced with the decision of coming up with some type of event to fill the mult-million dollar void left when the Louisville Show was put out of it misery by the hugely successful Elkhart dealer event.

    So, the trade association’s think tank came up with a convoluted thing called RVX. It’s billed as the one all-industry event because it really doesn’t have a focus other than generating gobs of money for RVIA.

    Folks, when will someone have the guts to publically tell RVIA that RVX is not wearing any clothes?
