The Club to host special Club Week in lieu of NEC show

The Club are doing things a little different this October

By William Coleman

This month The Caravan and Motorhome Club will be hosting Club Week, with a slight difference. The Club is inviting one and all to join in with this week-long virtual experience.

From October 12th-25th, Club members can enjoy and take part in various activities online, while any new members who join during this period will get their first night free on a Club campsite.

At this time of year the Club, as well as most of the industry, would be gearing up for the October NEC show to display what they have in store for members and what they can offer any potential new members. Due to the events of this year, the super show will not be taking place, so the Club is thinking outside the box to bring the show to you.

All the content can be found on the Club’s website and social media channels.

Throughout the Club Week, there will be daily forum videos hosted by TV presenter, Club ambassador and campervanner Matt Allwright, who will be asking all the questions members want answered. Forums will premier on the Club’s Facebook page at 11am each day of the event.

Matt will be talking to Nick Lomas, director general of the Club, about what has gone on throughout 2020 and what 2021 looks like for the Club and its members.

There will be forums with special guests; British Canoeing will inspire you to get out on the water, while Raleigh will tell you all about the benefits of e-bikes and the Club’s member offer. Special celebrity guest Karen Wright, participant in the 2018 series of The Great British Bake Off and avid caravanner, will also be chatting with Matt.

The Club website will feature news from caravan, motorhome, and campervan manufacturers giving details of the latest product launches. There will also be one of the Club’s hugely popular live quizzes on Facebook that will feature highlights from the week, so make sure you tune in to make the most of Club Week!

Harvey Alexander, Caravan and Motorhome Club Director of Marketing and Membership Services said: “We know our members will miss going to the NEC exhibition, so we wanted to make sure we could bring them details of the latest leisure vehicle product news and launches, and also to help bring our community together to share tips and experiences of their touring holidays.

The forums with Matt Allwright are always hugely popular at the show, so this is a great way to continue the activities and bring them not only to our members but those who have an interest in this holiday pastime. We look forward to welcoming everyone to Club Week.”

Matt said: “I’m going to miss seeing everyone at the show, so this is a great way of keeping in touch and bringing Club members all the latest information in a relaxed and informative way. I’m really looking forward to Club Week. See you there!”
