The show in the Sunshine State proved a big success for everyone, with records sales and a massive 56,953 attendants. The show’s public days were from January 15 to 19 at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
Overall, spirits seems to be up — there was a great positivity for this year that, in the past, has been plagued by laments of gas prices and the tough state of the economy. Safe-T-Plus had a great time alongside other dealers. RVs seemed to be selling well and the industry is looking up after a series of tough times that everyone has had to deal with. While not everyone is back in the place to buy an RV, that’s still a good thing. The fact that people are being smart about their debt load and lending helps the RV industry to keep a good, solid footing.
Safe-T-Plus was also represented at the massive gathering in Quartzsite from January 18 to 26. In fact, this show is hailed at the biggest in the United States. Even though it takes place near a sleepy town just off of Interstate 10 and only about 20 miles from the California state line, the show in Quartzsite regularly attracts attendees ranging in the hundred of thousands, who can get in for the public days free of charge. Q, as the show is sometimes called, is an experience unlike any other. People from all sides and experiences of the RVing world come to engage with others, glean wisdom from like-minded folks and find some purchases to make.
A gorgeous day in the desert for a show!
At the same time as the Sports, Vacation and RV Show, Quartzsite hosts the rock, gem and mineral show, craft shows and several flea markets, making it a target destination for everyone — not just RV enthusiasts.
The Safe-T-Plus set up in Quartzsite!
Safe-T-Plus had a great time showing and sharing with the attendees of both events the vast benefits that comes with our products to improve their RV experiences.
Hope to see you next year, Tampa and Quartzsite!
