The return of the Commercial Vehicle Show (CV Show) to The NEC this month is expected to attract 15,000 people, its organiser claims.
CV Show was last held in 2008 then cancelled as a result of the recession. The annual show, which returns to Birmingham from 12-14 April, is run by the CV Show Partnership incorporating the Road Haulage Association, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and IRTE Services, the trading company of the Society of Operations Engineers.
This year’s CV Show has secured 250 exhibitors including 14 vehicle manufacturers displaying eco-friendly vehicles for the first time. It is co-located with Workshop 2011 covering the vehicle maintenance and repairs industry.
“This year’s content will be broadly similar to previous years’ proven formula,” a spokesperson for the organiser said. “However, we also have a new and very effective media partnership with Road Transport Media.”
Marshall Dallas has been appointed as the new chief executive of the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC). He joins the company on 1 October succeeding Hans H Rissmann who has held the role for 21 years.
