Each year at the NEC you can expect to see dealers and manufacturers pull out all the stops to wow visitors from all across the country. This year Swift Group, Europe's number one leisure vehicle brand, are vowing to to be the talk of the show with their extensive list of show launch exclusives, offers and new services.

As the UK's largest manufacturer of touring caravans, motorhomes and holiday homes, Swift will deliver a spectacular showcase of new-for-2019 models and initiatives. The brand will also be represented at the show by its extensive UK-wide dealership network, on-hand with expert support and local deals.

Nick Page, Swift Group Commercial Director, said "Swift is a mainstay at the Motorhome and Caravan Show, known for delivering the industry's most exciting, forward-thinking breakthroughs in luxury leisure living. With a host of celebrations and revolutionary launches to unveil at the event, this year will be no exception.

"What makes Swift so special is its readiness to listen and respond to how the market is changing, what consumers really want and how we can enhance their leisure time. Visitors to the show will see innovations designed to deliver just that, and we are looking forward to sharing such breathtaking exclusives."

The debut model line up will include their all new spacious 8ft wide Swift Elegance Grande caravan which features a unique 655 layout, the imposing all-new 2019 Kon-tiki motorhome and the ingenious 6-sleeper SPod 6 holiday home.

Swift will also showcase their motorhome hire service, Swift Go, another great service which will bring a lot more people to the leisure industry as well as introducing their products to a much wider audience.

A festive touch will be added with a celebration of caravanning heritage as Eccles marks its centenary - exhibiting the brand's story from humble beginnings in 1919 to today's special anniversary edition.

Additionally, visitors will be able to experience a life riveted by Airstream, the all-American icon that is increasingly beloved by Brits, I stayed in one at a Caravan and Motorhome Club site recently and loved every moment of it. So see my thoughts on the American icon click here.

As Airstream's official UK distributor, Swift will demonstrate why this international sensation is enjoying increasing UK success, from the distinctive look and handcrafted aluminium bodywork to stylish interiors and exceptional functionality. Held 16-21 October at Birmingham NEC, the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2018 is the premier event in the leisure vehicle industry calendar. Attracting more than 100,000 visitors, the show will feature the sector's leading brands and suppliers, celebrity guests and live demonstrations, while also providing entertainment for the whole family.
