With over 460 exhibitors and all of its floor space completely sold out, the 2016 Commercial Vehicle Show, which opens at the NEC in Birmingham on Tuesday (April 26) looks set to be one of the busiest yet when it opens its doors in less than two weeks’ time.
As with the past two years, every available square metre of display space in Halls 3a, 4 and 5 of the NEC has been allocated to exhibitors from across the road transport, distribution and logistics supply industries, meaning the show really is the one-stop-shop for anyone working in the sector. What’s more, there’s still time to register for free tickets at www.cvshow.com
This year will see a large number of exhibitors making their show debuts, or returning to the show after an absence, including Bott, Commercial Body Fittings, DFSK, Enterprise Flex-E-Rent, FORS, Hubbard, John Dennis Coachbuilders, Kassbohrer, LDV, Mitsubishi, Pullman Fleet Srvices , Renault, SsangYong, TIP Tanker Services, Toyota and Volkswagen.
The 2016 event will also see a record number of new light commercial vehicle launches. While many of these remain a closely guarded secret until the show opens its doors on April 26, the likes of Citroen, Toyota, Isuzu, LDV and DFSK have already confirmed they will be showing new models in the UK for the very first time. And there’s more launch news to come, making the Show the ideal sourcing opportunity for fleet managers.
The best-attended, largest and most comprehensive road transport and logistics event in Britain remains the premier industry exhibition to visit for all the latest in vehicle technology, product and services innovations.
Indeed, new technology will be at the forefront of the 2016 event, with operators able to compare the latest developments in driver management, compliance and real-time fleet administration from a variety of software and telematics suppliers one of the fastest-growing areas of the transport and logistics industries.
There are two dedicated zones within the 2016 CV Show expressly designed to make it easy for visitors to find sector suppliers. Workshop is an all-encompassing shop window displaying hundreds of exhibitors spanning the whole automotive aftermarket and CV maintenance sector. Cool satisfies the special requirements of the temperature controlled operator with a vast display of refrigerated transport and cold chain equipment and related services.
