Visitor registrations open for CV Show 2019

The UK’s biggest event for the road transport, distribution and logistics sector opened for visitor registrations on January 7 via the official website: An encouraging number of visitor registrations to this free-to-attend event were recorded in the first week of ticket application, indicating strong positivity within the industry.

The Commercial Vehicle Show is the UK’s largest event for the sector. Back for its 18th year, the event is being held from the 30 April-2 May across three halls at Birmingham’s NEC. Exhibitor spaces for the 2019 Show have almost sold out three months in advance of the event and the remaining stands are in high demand.

Last year close to 21,000 visitors attended the CV Show and this year’s event looks set to be even more popular, with numerous unveilings and global launches.

Ford will once again be a major exhibitor in 2019 and will be displaying a comprehensive range of vehicles. Other exhibitors include Citroen, FIAT Professional, Isuzu, LDV, MAN, Mitsubishi, Peugeot, Toyota, Vauxhall and VW. The manufacturers will be taking stands alongside many other enterprises involved in the commercial vehicle support industry; from telematics firms and tyre producers, through to commercial training providers and supply chain specialists.

In addition to representation from global truck and van manufacturers, independent British businesses that support the heavy goods vehicle and light commercial vehicle sectors will be displaying their products and services, ranging from bespoke van coachbuilding, to tooling and racking suppliers.

Rob Skelton, CV Show Director, said, “The efforts of the organisers to innovate and improve our offering year on year have paid off yet again in attracting a wide and exciting range of manufacturers and supporting businesses; it cements the show’s status as a truly world-class event.”

David Crawford, Sales and Marketing Manager for the show, added, “The high number of exhibitors and visitors registering for this year’s CV Show is a reassuring sign of market confidence and buoyancy within the road transport industry at a time of possible market uncertainty in other sectors. The CV Show has always been, and will continue to be, the hard-working show for hard-working people.”
