Manchester prepares for caravan show
Manchester is currently hosting one of the caravan industry's biggest occasions of the year.
The four-day Caravan and Motorhome Show 2014 got underway yesterday (January 23rd) and will be running until the end of the weekend at the Event City complex in Trafford Park.
As many as 27,500 people are set to attend over the course of the four days and Sam North, director of the Caravan and Motorhome show, explained camping holidays have seen a renaissance in the UK in recent years.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, he said: "We're seeing lots more interest coming from newcomers for this year which bodes really well. As consumers look to leave holiday decisions later, having the freedom to hit the road at a moments notice is even more appealing."
The recession hit household budgets hard, so consumers are increasingly looking for low-budget holidays rather than huge expensive trips abroad.
With the UK having so much to offer travellers, camping holidays could be set for further growth in popularity over the coming years.
