The 2014 Gauteng Getaway Show once again proved that the Getaway Show is the premier outdoor lifestyle and adventure event in the country. This year’s show returned to the Coca Cola Dome from 29 to 31 August 2014 and did not disappoint the staggering 17 553 enthusiastic visitors that arrived.
The 400+ exhibits included travel-destinations, accommodation, outdoor gear, 4×4 products and accessories, motor homes, caravans and trailers, camping equipment and adventure operators – without doubt, something for everyone.
Throughout the show weekend, visitors took every advantage of the show-stopping specials and exciting competitions. And just about everyone left with bags full of exciting goodies for their next adventure.
The 2014 show catered for all comers, with everything from self-heating cappuccino for those early morning game drives, to amazing climbs on the Toyota Urban Tracks – where they demonstrated the incredible hill climbing abilities of Toyota’s 4×4 vehicles. A crowd favourite was the Mercedes Benz “pack your vehicle as fast as you can” challenge, where visitors were timed to see how fast they could cram themselves and their luggage into Mercedes Benz’s amazing Viano Camper Van. The record was set at around 7 seconds for four people and luggage, all packed and ready to go.
The outside was also a major success. Sedgwick’s provided some fantastic young artists and top-drawer live entertainment. Close by, kiddies were entertained with loads of activities while parents could catch their breath and have a quick glass of Sedgwick’s Old Brown as they did so.
Fun for the whole family!
