Organisers of the Commercial Vehicle Show have announced that the independent ABC audit has confirmed a total visitor attendance in 2014 of 18,884; a 4% increase on last year’s figure. Additionally, the demographic analysis of registration data shows the significant authority and influence of visitors from across the road transport and logistics business.

The CV Show again proved to be the industry meeting place with over 450 exhibitors showcasing products and services, providing UK operators with far greater choice than at any other UK exhibition serving the sector.

Penny Randall, Operational Marketing Director at Renault Trucks UK, was particularly pleased with the result. “Renault Trucks returned to the CV Show in 2014 for the first time since 2008.

We were exhibiting our new Euro-6 range for the first time in this environment and were delighted with the attention it received. The volume and, more importantly, the quality of visitors made it an extremely worthwhile experience, with orders taken on the stand and solid leads generated that have already turned into new business for us.”

Demonstrating the wide range of exhibitors at the CV Show, positive comments were received from a number of other sectors.

Nathan Jones, Fuller Tankers’ Managing Director said, “Fuller Tankers always enjoys the Commercial Vehicle Show as it brings together a wide range of our customers, old and new.

This was our first year as the sole UK agent for Van Hool and, following the Show, we secured our first order for three GP Tankers.”

Components of all types were very much in evidence at the Show and Aspoeck UK had a successful three days. “Aspoeck UK was delighted to exhibit at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show. It was a great opportunity to demonstrate to visitors our new and exciting range of lighting products, which attracted much interest and enquiries from a broad spectrum of visitors,” said Lee Rush, Managing Director.

Omnia (CS), bodywork specialists also had a positive time, as Janki Johri, Purchasing Manager reported. “CV Show 2014 was a triumph with the full Omnia range attracting visitors who found the lightweight material a suitable and flexible option for a range of applications from BMX ramps to specialist armoured vehicles. Overall, the reaction generated from the Show confirmed that Omnia has sourced and selected the right materials for the UK commercial vehicle market.”

Next year’s Show is now open for space bookings and prospective exhibitors are encouraged to get their application in quickly. The 2015 Commercial Vehicle Show will be held at Birmingham’s NEC and run from 14-16 April.
