The Mighty Booth

We felt like doing something a bit different at this year’s October NEC Motorhome & Caravan show so as well as our usual display of exciting products we had a new area of the stand.  This new area was to launch our new aftersales service ConradCares, and was called “The Mighty Booth”.

The Mighty Booth was a 2 metre corner of our stand devoted to dressing up fun!  We had 4 boxes of props, wigs and funny hats, and were inviting people to dress up in some of our gear and have their photo taken.  The photos were then uploaded to our Facebook page and the three photos with the most ‘likes’ win prizes.   Each day’s photos are in their own album on our page here.

Nathan made it in to the Daily Exhibitor newsletter –  

We had lots of people taking part, some needed more persuading than others, but everyone that got involved had great fun.


The Winners

The winners of the competition were drawn on Friday 1st November, here are the winning photos.  The top two photos were in hot competition for the number one spot but Pamela McKellar won in the end with the help of her PR machine friends and family getting a stonking 290 likes, her prize is a WaecoMSP 1012 Pure sine wave inverter.  Jo Smith came in a close second with 226 likes, he won a Maxview HD satellite receiver and Keith Chinn won our third prize, a Dometic GC100 Gas checker pen with 39 likes.










1st place - Pamela McKellar       2nd place - Jo Smith                3rd place - Keith Chinn 


The point of all this fun was to show our light-hearted caring side, as well as helping to make the days go faster!  People that chatted to Nathan on the stand will certainly remember his giant blonde afro wig…

What is #ConradCares?

So the Mighty booth was to launch #ConradCares,  You might be wondering  what on earth is a hashtag?  Think of it as the Batman light in the sky; the batsignal, if you use hashtag #ConradCares in a wall post or message on Facebook, Twitter or Google+ for any advice or support we will respond on the same day.*  For those of you not using social media we also have an email address for the same purpose

#ConradCares is Conrad Anderson's pledge to offer quality across the board. From the products and brands we supply coupled with accurate pre-sales technical advice and guidance, followed up with efficient aftersales service, technical support and communication.


Other Show News

Steve Anderson, our Managing Director was representing Conrad Anderson on the VB/E&P stand as the Midlands dealer for both brands.  There was a huge amount of interest in the full range of Air suspension and hydraulic levelling products on both motorhomes and caravans.

New products on display

We were exhibiting an exciting new 360˚ camera system from Brigade, with a representative from Brigade available on stand to answer any questions.  This superb system has 4 cameras mounted on the roof of the vehicle, the pictures of which are then neatly knitted together into 1 image on the monitor showing a full birds’ eye view of the vehicle.  You may have seen this advert in the show guide:

Popular products

As ever our most popular products were VB Air suspension, E&P Hydraulic Levelling and Satellite Internet.   The other big hot topic was satellite TV changes, these transponder changes and satellite movements should all be finished by next spring, have a read of these blog posts to get an idea of what to expect:

  1. Astra 2f test info
  2. Which channels where?

Another product we were asked a lot about was the Oyster Vision 1, this can be upgraded to a Vision 2 by trading in the control box for new ones.  There’s a blog post about this too, and you can order online here.

In all it was a great show with lots of interest across the board, we hope to see you at our next exhibition at the NEC in February.
