You want to support the German camping industry with your company? You would like to establish contacts with campsite businesses and our supporting members? You would like to contribute your expertise to achieve the association's goals? In that case, a sustaining membership could be interesting for your company. This page will give you a first insight into the topic. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested. We will discuss personally whether a sustaining membership could be of use to you.

What are the advantages of a sustaining membership?

Our aim is to design the circle of supporting members in such a way that all partnerships are in a balanced network of relationships.

  • The BVCD e.V. informs the regional associations (full members), member companies and supporting members of the BVCD e.V. about your joining as a supporting member. The company, the product portfolio, and the services for BVCD member companies can be presented according to individual agreement.
  • All supporting members receive contact details of all BVCD member companies once a year on request.
  • Every supporting member is allowed to use the official logo of the BVCD e.V. with reference to the supporting membership.
  • The BVCD e.V. provides an alphabetical list of all supporting members with address, logo and a link to its own company website on the association-related website under a separate menu item called "Supporting Members". An additional page can be created via the "Details" link to present the supporting member, the current product range and the current offers for member companies.
  • Participation as elected member of the advisory board of the BVCD e.V.
  • On our association website you can communicate important information for campsite operators, including new products, special offers and company news.

Who can become a supporting member?

A supporting membership in the BVCD e.V. is of particular importance for the following sectors and commercial enterprises:

  • Planning offices and architects (structural and civil engineering) for the conception, planning and expansion of camping and leisure facilities
  • Manufacturers and dealers of caravans, motorhomes, and rental accommodation for campsites
  • Manufacturers and distributors for the production and supply of specialist equipment and technical equipment for camping and leisure facilities, in particular building and sanitary engineering, stand supply technology and barrier system technology
  • Specialist service providers for business equipment of camping and leisure facilities, such as providers of special software, internet and advertising agencies
  • Trade partners for non-food and food sectors (kiosk, shop and gastronomy)
  • Public institutions and associations as well as all companies with a high affinity for the nature-oriented leisure and holiday form of camping in Germany.

Due to the close exchange of information between supporting member and association, interesting product innovations can be developed for the German camping market, demand-oriented product ranges can be built up and an optimisation of the service offers can be developed. At the same time, new contacts to member companies and other associations can be established through the cooperation of the association.
