The Caravanning Industry Association (CIVD)

The Caravanning Industry Association (CIVD) has been representing the interests of the industrial branch of the German caravanning industry since 1962. Its 148 members include virtually all German and European manufacturers of leisure vehicles, in addition to wellknown suppliers and service providers, public institutions and allied associations from all areas of the industry. 

The in-depth statistical information that has been prepared and continuously expanded by the CIVD for decades has become standard reading in the industry. The analysed figures regarding European and global caravanning markets have become an integral part of the activities undertaken by the global caravanning industry and international analysts.  

The CIVD subsidiary Caravaning Informations GmbH (CIG) coordinates the marketing activities of the association. In 2016, the CIVD won the prestigious DGVM Innovation Award for its caravanning image campaign and was awarded the title “Association of the Year”. Now in its third generation, the campaign will continue to raise awareness of caravanning as a form of mobile travel by producing TV spots as well as taking other measures.

The international CARAVAN SALON in Düsseldorf plays a key role in the association’s activities. As the sponsor of the world’s largest trade fair for leisure vehicles, the CIVD provides important innovation and sales impulses for the European caravanning industry. Furthermore, the annual trade show is an excellent multiplier of the association’s PR activities.

The CIVD is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015.
