Kampeer & Caravan Jaarbeurs, a Dutch camping and caravanning show, will feature a sustainability award for the first time this year, taking place from October 5 to 9.
The show, which takes place in the city of Utrecht, is a big draw for camping and caravanning enthusiasts in the Netherlands and neighboring countries, usually attracting more than 35,000 visitors.
The sustainability award will seek to give out prizes for the most sustainable innovations in the camping industry in the Netherlands.
“The world around us is constantly changing, and sustainability is an increasingly important theme. Sustainable innovations give new energy and contribute to positive changes for the future,” said Rachel Jankowsky of the Kampeer & Caravan Jaarbeurs Show.
“Sustainability and the movement towards a healthier and more vital future are key. At Jaarbeurs, we not only want to organize our fairs and events as sustainably as possible from an operational point of view, but we also think it is important that we help our customers and partners in all markets in which we are active to boost sustainability through, for example, substantive programs, activities and, for example, the Kampeer. Sustainability award,” said Marloes van den Berg, chief sustainability officer of the Jaarbeurs exhibition center.
The Kampeer Sustainability Award is an initiative of Kampeer & Caravan Jaarbeurs (KCJ), the Kampeer & Caravan Industry (KCI), and the Nederlandse Kampeerauto Club (NKC).
Participants can compete for this prize in the motorhome product and camping product categories. Both categories concern the best sustainable, innovative products in the broadest sense, from durable accessories and technical innovations to individual parts and durable comfort-enhancing products.
