Covi 2016 was the place to be

Back to Pulse

New Zealand’s largest annual motorhome, caravan and outdoor expo, the Covi Motorhome, Caravan & Outdoor SuperShow took place over three action packed sun filled days, from the 11th to 13th of March 2016. Held at the iconic Greenlane showgrounds in Auckland, which has proved time and again to be a favourable venue for both exhibitors and showgoers alike.

Following increased demand from industry insiders, an additional 800 square meters of exhibition space was added to complement the existing 12,000 square meters of pavilion space – just enough to squeeze the FUSION truck full of green aliens inside for another session of family fun and music by the FUSION booth.

Showgoers were treated to a first hand look at all the new models and accessories from their favourite manufacturers and distributors, with numerous free seminars on offer and the popular No Reserve Auctions running daily.

RV road warriors could discover places to stay and destinations to explore at the Stop & Stay zone. Television personality chef Derek cooked up some holiday-friendly meals in a real KEA kitchen, showing those in attendance how to prepare simple yet delicious meals using the limited cooking facilities usually taken on a family camping adventure.

Positioned in a prime pavilion location, everyone’s favourite lifestyle entertainment manufacturer FUSION was on hand to demonstrate how the power of quality engineering can deliver unique and musically superior audio solutions for today’s adventurous travelers. By designing products that resist the elements such as water, wind, salt-spray, moisture, humidity and UV exposure you can venture off road knowing your music will follow you everywhere.

Teaming up with RV Lifestyle magazine FUSION gave away a famous green alien with every subscription signed up for during the event, which led to a mass of green being seen on all corners of the event. In addition to the alien giveaway, one lucky subscriber went into the draw to win a MS-UD750 – the most advanced entertainment system available for camper and RV enthusiasts to enjoy to date! What a prize.

Making its debut at the event was the revolutionary FUSION 70 series, which packs a full featured entertainment ensemble of Bluetooth streaming, app control and smartphone playback into a small DIN sized waterproof chassis. “The 70 Series is designed for those who are fed up with their basic car stereo not standing up to the environment and simply want a purpose built solution that plays quality music and fits easily into an existing space” says Glenn Orr FUSION sales director.

In addition to the great quality products from FUSION on display, showgoers were treated to numerous new product launches including the new look Flagstaff Tent camper which Boasts 7 berths, expanding to a huge 7.3 meters long space yet is only 5.2 meters to tow. One lucky showgoer walked away with the ultimate prize, a four week motorhome holiday in the UK and Europe. In addition a $10,000 cash back incentive was made to one lucky showgoer who purchased a new RV or camper at the show.

Another great event for all involved and FUSION was thrilled to be providing the holiday soundtrack to so many new customers following the 3rd day of festivities.
