The Cool Pavilion at the 2009 Commercial Vehicle Show will be a better place to do business. Even in the tough economic times, the food industry is doing better than most other sectors. The industry depends on road transport to deliver its success and much of that involves refrigerated or temperature-controlled vans, trucks and trailers.
Many of the firms that make those temperature-controlled vans, trucks and trailers have already signed up as exhibitors in next year's Cool Pavilion, along with the growing number of firms offering supporting products and services. This will make this part of the CV Show a magnet for its business visitors.
The IT and Telematics Zone is also set to do well as firms in these sectors report growing demand for their services. The ability to deliver consistent increases in all aspects of transport efficiency is even more important when the going gets tough.
Since 2000, when the IRTE Show, TipCon and the Commercial Vehicle and Bodywork Show combined their resources, the CV Show has helped more than 1,200 exhibitors and nearly a quarter of a million visitors to meet and do business at Birmingham's NEC. And it looks as though 2009 is continuing the trend, with advance exhibitor bookings already on a par with this year, when the show brought in over 28,000 business visitors.
With six months to go before the doors open for the tenth Commercial Vehicle Show from 28-30 April 2009, you can be certain that your visit will be well worthwhile. In today's financial climate, it's a vital opportunity that you really cannot afford to miss.

The Commercial Vehicle Show is owned by the CV Show Partnership, comprising the Road Haulage Association, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and the IRTE (Institute of Road Transport Engineers), a professional sector of the SOE (Society of Operations Engineers). Crystal Communications handles stand space sales and marketing for the Partnership.
