What a start to 2018 – we’ve travelled around the UK - launched two new products, and two new option packages, all in the space of six weeks.
Our Spring 2018 show season kicked of in Manchester where 36,482 visitors saw us at the Caravan & Motorhome show, Eventcity. The four-day show saw us launch the UK’s first ever pet-friendly option for holiday homes. Our new Simply Pawsome Pack, designed especially for dog lovers, allows Brits holidaying with their pets the chance to add features such as a ‘pup gate’, stable door, and outdoor tap to stop mucky paws bringing in the dirt. To celebrate the launch, top dog psychologist, Tina Meaney, joined us on the stand to answer questions about the behaviour of visitor’s dogs and give out handy advice on travelling with pooches.
Next up was the Scottish Caravan & Motorhome show in Glasgow. We displayed 7 models including our Portland lodge – a firm favourite in the Willerby range – and also launched our brand new Simply Better Sleep option package at the show. The package, designed to revolutionise the sleep experience of holiday home owners sees us partnering with leading British mattress makers, Hypnos, to offer a superior sleep option in all of our holiday homes and lodges.
To round off our show season for Spring 2018, we attended the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome show, NEC, where we launched our brand new luxury leisure lodge – The Juniper. The show, with over 90,000 visitors, is the biggest show we exhibit at in the calendar year and it’s safe to say the Juniper was the talk of the show! The most configurable lodge on the market – the Juniper – gives customers the freedom to customise their lodge to make it perfect for their lifestyle. It comes in 2, 3 or 4 bedroom layouts, with two colour schemes and an option to add bi-fold doors in up to four locations. Alongside the Juniper and a further 7 other Willerby models, we also launched our Sheraton Elite at the show – bigger and better than our current Sheraton 40 x 13, the Sheraton Elite is 42 x 14 and has a bath as standard in the ensuite, giving extra space and luxury for those spending extended periods at their holiday home.
With three shows already under our belt for 2018, we’re not stopping there; as ever we’ll be exhibiting at the Lawns Caravan Extravaganza in September and you can see a wide range of Willerbys almost 365 days a year (we’re closed for Christmas) at one of our dedicated showgrounds in Hull or Lanarkshire, Scotland. And with more exciting launches planned for later in the year, and a big announcement planned for just a couple of weeks’ time keep checking back at willerby.com or sign up to our newsletter (scroll to the bottom of this blog) for the most up-to-date news and announcements.
