I have already said that 2019 is going to be a big year for the industry! With sales on the rise and more parks are set to open we will have more holiday opportunities than ever. One other big grand opening for 2019 is Travelworld’s brand new state of the art HQ.
Staffordshire-based Travelworld Motorhomes has announced details of a week-long Grand Opening event to mark the start of operations at Creswell Park in Stafford.
The event will run from Monday 18th until Sunday 24th February 2019. Monday 18th will feature outdoor enthusiast and TV presenter Julia Bradbury and renowned wine critic and TV personality, Jilly Goolden.
Ross Edwards, managing director of Travelworld Motorhomes said: “We are very excited to be opening our doors to everyone. Julia and Jilly will bring to life what it means to own a motorhome and the kind of fun and healthy lifestyle motorhome ownership brings.”
Julia will be talking about why walking and camping are good for us, not just physically but valuable for our mental health too.
Julia said: “The nourishing beauty of the great outdoors is available for everyone and motorhoming can bring you one step closer to experiencing some of the most spectacular walking routes in the UK and beyond.
“It’s great to see how much the motorhome and camping industry is growing and I’m looking forward to telling you more about my outdoor adventures in the UK and my exciting new travels around Australia for my new ITV series. I can’t wait to be part of this very special occasion for Travelworld.”
Jilly will be offering wines for guests to taste and sharing her knowledge of some of the best wine regions in Europe to visit in a motorhome.
Jilly said: “The brilliant thing about touring the Continent in a motorhome is you can head for some marvelous wine regions, explore, taste the wines and bring the wines back! I’m very much looking forward to steering you in the right direction at the Grand Opening, and to sharing with you a few wines you can look out for on your travels”.
Pro mountain bike racer, Scott Beaumont, nicknamed, ‘Boom Boom’ will be performing stunts and chatting to guests on Saturday 23rd February. Super car BAC Mono will be on display and interactive showroom tours will be conducted by Travelworld representatives every day during the event. Competitions and prizes for all the family will be on offer and guests can preview a host of new motorhomes. Refreshments will be served daily.
The event will take place at Creswell Park, located just off junction 14 of the M6, and situated on a five-acre site. The new glass fronted showrooms consist of a 25-bay workshop, extensive parking space, a large service centre to accommodate up to 25 large A-class motorhomes such as Hymer, Niesmann + Bischoff and Carado – brands Travelworld has become synonymous with.
In acknowledgement of the growth and expansion of Travelworld, the 40 year old family-run company and UK Erwin Hymer Group dealer received a ‘highly commended’ accolade for Fastest Growing Business at the Midlands Family Business Awards.
Ross Edwards said: “Our previous site in Telford served us well but as our award commendation indicates, we have grown considerably and recognised the need for a central location, Creswell Park is perfect for our continued growth and progress.
“2018 has been a tremendous year for Travelworld and we will start 2019 in the same spirit by welcoming all our valued customers and new visitors to what will be a must-see Grand Opening event.”
