The Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show 2014


The Caravan Club is delighted to announce that Caravan Club member and much-loved Scottish TV personality, Gail Porter, will officially open the Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show on Caravan Club Day, 6 February.

Taking place at the SECC, Glasgow, from Thursday 6 February until Sunday 9 February, Gail will meet visitors and explain why she loves the freedom of caravanning and the quality time it gives her and her daughter.

Edinburgh born Porter has had a well publicised career since she hit our television screens, but today is as well known for her charity work, and down to earth nature. Gail will tour Glasgow in a tartan teardrop caravan on Tuesday 4 February to help promote the show.

Tony Hall, Director of Marketing for The Caravan Club says, "Gail is one of our most down to earth celebrity members and I'm sure her fellow Scots will enjoy hearing all about her adventures and love for caravanning as she opens the show in Glasgow.  It's great that she will be able to welcome both Club members and show visitors to this fantastic Scottish show on Caravan Club day."

Hall continues, "Caravanning is a fantastic way to give our children and grandchildren holidays just like we had when we were growing up, and it doesn't cost a lot of money to enjoy simple things such as bug hunting, building a rope swing or rock pooling; these are all completely free, but are great family memories to be treasured forever. I remember my best holidays as a child included sleeping out in the open on a site!"

Jamie Taylor, Show Director says, "There's a fantastic buzz around the show already this year with more exhibitors on board than ever before."

Gail will be available for interview at the show or by phone in the lead up to the opening. Please contact Maxine Soghmanian.
