As expected, the organisers the Commercial Vehicle Show 2020 have cancelled the annual event, which was due to take place at the NEC in Birmingham, from April 28-30.
The organisers sat that in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic together with guidance issued by the British government on Monday evening (16 March) that all mass gatherings are to be avoided, it is clear that the only realistic options for this year’s show were cancellation or postponing to a later date.
The option of postponing was given careful consideration given the importance of the show to the road transport sector; however, it was felt there were too many unknown variables to make this option possible, no doubt the fact that it is an annual exhibition.
The organisers added that their priority is to ensure the health and safety of all those involved with the Show. They also thanked all our exhibitors, registered visitors, Show team and other stakeholders for their continued support during this most challenging and unprecedented of times.
