GERMANY: Adventure Northside – new venue for 2017
September 30 - October 3
NOTE – NEW VENUE FOR ADVENTURE NORTHSIDE 2017
Adventure Northside is a major international 4-day overland travel, bushcraft and survival expo. The event attracts traders and visitors from Germany, Belgium, France, Holland, Poland, Great Britain and Scandinavia. It’s worth noting that this popular event it is the only show of its type in Northern Europe!
Building on the success of the inaugural exhibition at a small venue in the village of Vethem near Walsrode (south of Hamburg) in 2015, last year saw the exhibition grow yet again, to the point that the camping areas had reached maximum capacity … hence a new venue had to be found for 2017.
The event’s organisers Europe Events Ltd. have done precisely this, and what a wonderful new venue it is. Located in the village of 21493 Basthorst, Northeast Germany, it is entitled “Gut Basthorst”, an enormous 600-hectare private estate, the seat of Baron von Ruffin & his family. Hosting an assortment of events throughout the year, the venue is located just 30 minutes East of Hamburg – this equates to a catchment area of over 5 million people!!! The ambiance of the estate with its historic buildings, stables and cobbled streets will make it unique for a 4×4 fair. Capable of accommodating 150+ outdoor & indoor trade stands (the complex boasts a large indoor exhibition space in the rustic barns), an audience of 7,000 – 10,000 day visitors, and hundreds of campers expected this year, they can easily be pitched within the surrounding forest and meadows. A major component in a 10-year plan, the potential for the show’s growth at Gut Basthorst is incredible.
Featuring all forms of adventure travel, Adventure Northside is open to all makes and models of expedition truck, 4×4 campers, adventure motorbikes, plus the show will once again include a diverse assortment of commercial trade stands and vehicle displays, together with evening entertainment with live music, catering & bar area, fire-pit, etc. Importantly, the character of the Adventure Northside festival with its seminars & workshops in covered buildings (both are included in the admission fee), and relaxed atmosphere is to be preserved.
