Show to run from 13-15 April at the NEC, Birmingham
The Commercial Vehicle Operator Show will run from 13-15 April at Birmingham’s NEC, exhibition centre.
This follows the disappointing cancellation of the 2009 Commercial Vehicle Show due to economic pressures.
The Commercial Vehicle Operator Show will enable exhibitors to present the widest possible range of products and services used in the day to day running of commercial vehicles.
There will be an emphasis on environmental impact, improved efficiency and profitability. The following year (2011) will see the first of a new Commercial Vehicle Show series.
“This is tremendous news for the industry,” said RHA chief executive Geoff Dunning. “We are planning a new style of show, targeted at transport operators that will add value and deliver operating solutions.”
“This new Show will be an ideal platform, particularly for those specialising in vehicle maintenance equipment, replacement parts, logistics and fleet management systems,” said Nick Jones, chief executive at the SOE (Society of Operations Engineers). “This industry needs a business-to-business Show to cater for professional transport operators‚Äô wide-ranging needs and the Commercial Vehicle Operator Show will do exactly that.”
“There have been strong calls from companies within the sector for the CV Show Partnership to run a new style event in 2010,” added Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive. “The CV Operator Show will meet this demand while setting the scene for the return of the Commercial Vehicle Show in 2011.”
