All roads lead to CV Show

All roads lead to Birmingham this week for the CV Show with over 450 exhibitors, and a 10 per cent larger floor space over previous years

Halls 3a, 4 and 5 of the NEC, Birmingham, will play host to one of the most exciting CV Shows yet when it opens its doors on Tuesday morning.

Visitors are still able to pre-register here.

For 2017, the show has some big names making a return. The free-to-attend show hosts two heavy truck manufacturers which are making a comeback, DAF and MAN, along with Guest Trucks, a major distributor for Iveco.

While there are bound to be a number of surprises, one of the major news stories will be the reveal of DAF’s new Future Truck Chassis Concept.

Two new live features are set to fuel discussion. The new initiatives, which will debut at the show between 25-27 April, are the ‘Innovation Hub’ presented by respected industry title Motor Transport, and interactive Twitter Walls, on which visitors and exhibitors can tweet their experiences and news live from the show.

The focus of the Innovation Hub is on exploring the latest developments in fuels, autonomous vehicles and logistics planning. The 45 minute sessions will include expert speakers from Iveco, TRL and Transport Systems Catapult leading the discussion on innovation, followed by facilitated debate with speakers and attendees to explore the future developments and generate feedback from the audience.

The Innovation Hub will be housed in Hall 3 and will be free to attend – there’s no need to pre-register, just turn up and take a seat.
