MARVAC Campground Vendor Showcase

The first annual MARVAC Campground Vendor Showcase promises to be an outstanding networking and educational event! This half day event coincides with move-in for the 58th Annual Detroit RV & Camping Show. Campground owners and their guests will meet with quality vendors, learn about changes in camper demographics, and enjoy a happy hour with other friends in the industry. Each registrant will also receive a MARVAC Vendor Book, a complete reference guide with QR codes linking users directly to the vendor's landing page.
