CMT 2018: 120 premieres of motorhomes and caravans – main image

The 50th anniversary CMT holiday fair in Stuttgart began on January 12. It is the largest event of this type in Germany and one of the most important in the world. This event is also a celebration of caravanning - as many as 143 brands from the caravanning industry will exhibit their vehicles.

The first day was intended for journalists and invited guests, but from January 13 to 21, the fair area - a total of 120,000 square meters - can be visited by anyone interested. This year , 2,192 exhibitors from 100 countries and 360 cities and regions announced their presence. Partner cities will also be present among them - e.g. Stuttgart will exhibit together with Łódź . Panama and Hungary will have stands as partner countries.


A record area was allocated for the exhibition, and all halls were rented (plus additional space in the entrance areas, on the exhibition square and in the Rothauspark between the exhibition halls!). This means that there should be a lot of attractions. This will be the largest fair in the 50-year history of CMT .

Sales are growing – the number of vehicles is increasing

Of course, we are most interested in the exhibition of campers and trailers. The number of registered recreational vehicles in Germany has been growing continuously for several years, and this is an incentive for additional manufacturers and distributors. This explains why around 1,000 recreational vehicles will be shown this year, including 120 world premieres . This time, as many as 143 brands from the caravanning industry will be presented, while last year there were 118. So in this respect, CMT also records a new record! It was even necessary to allocate an additional hall for campers, trailers and accessories.


We are not able to list all the new products that will be shown in Stuttgart, but after reviewing the premieres, we notice that there are especially many small camper vans with a lifting roof this year. One of the trends is to create small vehicles that can accommodate as many people as possible on board. The second trend - contrary to the first - offering large vehicles providing maximum space and comfort for just two passengers. So this time, everyone should find something they like.
