– Northern Indiana Event Center –
(RV/MH Hall of Fame)

On This Year’s Power Breakfast Agenda:
• An Inside Look at the Go RVing Program
• Plus a Newsmakers’ Panel Discussion

The leadership of the North American RV industry will again convene in early May to break bread with industry colleagues, national trade association executives, civic officials and a big crowd full of hard-working industry insiders at the 2nd Annual RV Industry Power Breakfast in the nation’s RV-manufacturing capital of Elkhart County, Ind. It is our hope that in sitting down with industry peers, tuning into a relevant panel discussion and fielding news updates from the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association, the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association, the Go RVing Coalition and Kampgrounds of America Inc. as well as the Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce and (via teleconference) U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly, everyone might walk away with a greater understanding of where our resurgent industry stands today, where the future opportunities lie — and what obstacles may still stand in our way as we move ahead.

  New this Year — A Post-Breakfast, Hour-Long ‘RVIA Town Hall Meeting’

Take the opportunity after this year’s RV Industry Power Breakfast to join industry peers for a closed-door meeting with representatives of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), the RV arena’s national trade group, to address any relevant topic that’s on your mind with regard to the RV sector at large.

In an one-on-one, off-the-record session unlike anything we’ve seen before, any breakfast attendee with a vital interest in RVIA’s national or international affairs is welcome to attend and participate in the give-and-take of a meeting that could wind up touching on any number of topics – sensitive or otherwise – such as:
• Standards Programs • RV Transportation • Technical Training • National Trade Shows • State and Federal Legislation • Labor Force Issues • Global Markets • Go RVing Campaign

This unique session will be gaveled by BJ Thompson, chairman of RVIA’s Public Relations Committee, and will tentatively include key industry decision-makers from a variety of mainstream organizations, including Kampgrounds of America Inc.

All Power Breakfast attendees are welcome to attend this session at no additional charge.
