The 2021 Commercial Vehicle Show will now take place on 8-10 June 2021 at the NEC in Birmingham, moving from its traditional April date to deliver the best possible Show in the safest environment.
In light of the ongoing disruption and uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic regarding the holding of events in the UK, the opportunity to move to a summer date for 2021 provides more certainty to both exhibitors and visitors offering more time to plan and prepare with confidence their attendance at the Show.
The Commercial Vehicle Show team is developing a comprehensive programme for the UK’s leading road transport event, working closely with partners the Institute of Road Transport Engineers (IRTE), the Road Haulage Association (RHA) and the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
Murray Ellis, Show Director, said: “The last year has shown the resilience and determination of everyone involved in the road transport sector. We are confident the 2021 Commercial Vehicle Show will provide the ideal platform for companies to launch and promote their products and services alongside all of the networking opportunities that the Show is renowned for amongst exhibitors and visitors alike.
“We have taken the opportunity to reschedule the 2021 Show to the Summer, which will ensure we can deliver the best possible event for our industry.
“With ever-changing legislation and UK-EU trading relationships, it’s more important than ever for businesses to make crucial investment decisions about the products and services they will need to succeed in the years ahead.
“There is no better place than the Commercial Vehicle Show for suppliers to showcase their latest innovations, and no better place for operators to catch up with every new development in their industry.”
After a year of cancelled events all over the UK, next year’s Commercial Vehicle Show will be the first opportunity for suppliers and customers to meet for a long time, and the industry is looking forward to renewing relationships.
Murray Ellis added: “We are working very closely with the NEC and all our exhibitors to make sure the Commercial Vehicle Show delivers a valuable and safe experience for everyone.
