"In addition to the VAT rise to 20 per cent in January, this will make an even more compelling reason for buyers to get their orders in early."Head of sales of P&O Ferries, Mark Atherton, adds: "Next year we launch the first of the two largest ferries ever to operate on the Dover – Calais route. Sponsoring this show is a great way to promote the benefits of these ships to caravan and motorhome users."The International Caravan and Motorhome Show takes place on 12 to 17 October at the Birmingham NEC.
