12 • RV PRO • March 2020 rv-pro.com S PEC I A L S EC T I O N D I S T R I B U TO R S H OW S RVP B E ST O F S H OW T he RV industry got its annual running head-start on the season as the major distributors each held their product showcases during January. In addition to the traditional shows hosted by NTP-STAG, Arrow Distributing, Keller Marine & RV and Northern Wholesale, there was an early entrant to the show season – Land 'N' Sea kicked off its marine/RV show in October – and a new spot on the calendar in early January reserved for Meyer Distributing. Dealers and vendors turned out in strong numbers for each show and business was solid for both the more established products as well as new introductions, according to distributors. This year, RV PRO attended five of the six shows and got a great look at what might be the hot sellers on dealer shelves this coming year. (On that note, be sure to check out RV PRO's 2020 Aftermarket Best of Show section beginning on page 36.) Beyond showcasing new products, these shows also offered oppor- tunities for distributors to highlight new initiatives, for vendors to host valuable educational seminars, for exhibitors to offer some great deals on pricing, and for dealers to network with each other, as well as with representatives for distributors and vendors. For an idea of how things went at these shows, simply turn the page to dive into this month's special section dedicated to distrib- utor show coverage. SHOW TIME! Dealers, distributors and suppliers get down to business as January show season heats up with deals and product debuts.
