INDUSTRY ’ S SHOT IN THE ARM

More than 120 covid-19 vaccinations were administered at the Let ’ s Go Brisbane Caravan and Outdoor Sale , held at the Brisbane Showgrounds in October . Queensland Health had set-up a small clinic at the show .
The four-day event attracted over 16,000 visitors to check-out the industry ’ s latest offerings – an increase on 2017-19 ’ s attendance figures .
“ This year was not only a success because of the strong sales and large crowds that we saw , but also because , for the first time ever , we were able to offer visitors the opportunity to get vaccinated against covid-19 ,” Caravanning Queensland CEO Jason Plant said .
Chris Mangifesta of Golf Super Centre said visitors to the event were “ educated and prepared to buy ” this year .
“ We had quite a few orders over the weekend , and especially a strong market for motorhomes , as well as people adapting to smaller caravans and campers ,” Mr Mangifesta said .
