- Commercial Vehicle Show 2021 will be the most important event in the UK road transport calendar

The Commercial Vehicle Show has always been the leading event on the road transport calendar each year and the 2021 event is set to be no different.
Set to take place from 13-15 April at the NEC in Birmingham, will be the first opportunity in two years for businesses in the road transport sector to catch up on all the latest developments in the industry – and the confidence from exhibitors has been strong.
The UK’s leading brands have long recognised the importance of demonstrating their latest products and services to key decision makers from thousands of UK businesses at the Commercial Vehicle Show, and more than 200 companies have already confirmed their attendance next year. They include:
VAUXHALL • CITROEN • PEUGEOT • TOYOTA • SSANGYONG • ISUZU • MAXUS • IVECO • MAN • SDC TRAILERS • GITI TIRE • MAGYAR • TOTALKARE HDWS • MAHA • GEMCO • CHEREAU • BPW • GRAY & ADAMS • SHELL OIL • TIP TANKER • TRAILAR • HANKOOK TYRE • PANELTEX • MODUL-SYSTEM • SORTIMO • TRAKM8 • VFS • HIAB • GEFCO • AUTOGLASS and many more. Our full list of exhibitors is here and is updated regularly.
In addition to the UK’s largest collection of road transport exhibitors, the 2021 Commercial Vehicle Show will host a programme of live theatre discussions. Sector leaders, innovators and commentators will talk about key industry issues throughout the three days of the Show. With all the changes that have been impacting the sector in the last year, these discussions will provide essential advice and information for every operator.
Even for an industry that is used to constantly moving goalposts, with the last year being no exception, the sector has risen to meet the challenges at every turn. Next year is set to bring more even changes as the UK and EU establish new trading rules and regulations.
In addition to new trading conditions and ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the industry continues to adapt to ever-changing emissions regulations and legislative requirements. As a result, it’s more important than ever for operators to make informed decisions about the best products and services to meet their needs.
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.”
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.
Ellis said: “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.
