The event was held at their brand-new showroom in Epping. This super-sized venue ‘The Touring Hub’ is Melbourne’s home of quality caravans and SXS vehicles.
The brand-new indoor showroom is dedicated to showcasing new and used caravans, camping equipment and side-by-side vehicles. The Touring Hub is a unique concept that aims to revolutionize the way holiday enthusiasts experience travel.
The venue was abuzz with energy and anticipation as the launch party kicked off. The guest list boasted an impressive array of sporting legends, including Jack Crisp, Jordan De Goughy, Oleg Markov, Jayden Short, Kamdyn McIntosh, Nick Vlastuin and Racing Car Driver Ryan Walkinshaw to name a few. The presence of these esteemed individuals showcased the respect and admiration they have for Jake King and Cameron Doidge, as well as their belief in the potential of The Touring Hub.
Among the notable attendees was Australian singing sensation, Bonnie Anderson, who expressed her support for the venture as she belted out a few tunes.
It was evident the importance of athletes having a strong support network and diversifying their interests beyond sports. Both King and Doidge are to be commended for their entrepreneurial spirit and their dedication to enhancing our holiday and adventure experience.
