“Having seen the success of EcoVelocity in 2011 first hand, CNI is delighted to form a new partnership for this year’s event,” CNI co-chairman James Brown said.
“EcoVelocity has taken the position as the UK’s major motoring show and, with all the exhibitors boasting impressive low emissions in their automotive products, it’s important that the organisers can demonstrate the same values.”
This year’s show will include a main theatre featuring presentations and discussions from industry experts about low-carbon motoring. Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience a hands-on test drive on a 3.5 mile route in London.
UBM has moved a step closer towards the acquisition of US organiser Advanstar.
The American firm, valued at US$972 million (£599 million) specialises in fashion, licensing, life sciences and powersports events.
