The Commercial Vehicle Show is to return to the NEC in Birmingham on 13-15 April next year, it has been announced.

Following the cancellation of the 2020 event due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the show’s organisers say more than 200 exhibitors have already confirmed their attendance in 2021.

In addition, a programme of live theatre discussions is planned.

Aside from the obvious topic of Covid-19, other major issues such as Brexit and changing emissions regulations are set to be on the agenda.

Show director Murray Ellis said: “Over the course of a very difficult year, we have witnessed such dedication and commitment from transport operators to keep Britain supplied with both essential goods and everyday products.

“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.

“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.”
