The purpose of the conference is to provide great parts and accessory purchasing experience,  which will benefit the supply chain and the consumers of RV. Aftermarket distributors and suppliers meet for 1-on-1 “appointment sessions” at the conference to pitch new products and discuss their existing offerings.

Alongside networking among colleagues who have an experience in the field, participants will also hear from thought leaders on the current state of the RV industry, create strategies to expand the market, and talk about possibilities for growth in the future.
