The 2021 Commercial Vehicle Show opened with a celebratory atmosphere at the NEC yesterday, with exhibitors and visitors able to meet face-to-face for the first time in more than two years.
Thousands of visitors have already passed through the doors to see the latest products and services on offer from more than 200 exhibitors.
Attendance has also been strong at the new live theatre programme running throughout the show on two separate stages. Covering a range of topics, the two live theatres have seen industry experts discussing everything from tyres to telematics and logistics to legislation.
Murray Ellis, show director, said: “The road transport sector has been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to get back to face-to-face networking again, and we’ve been thrilled to see so many enthusiastic visitors already on the first day of the Show.
“Our exhibitors are reporting that it’s great to be back at a live business event, and we’re looking forward to welcoming even more people tomorrow and Thursday.”
