UK’s biggest commercial vehicle event takes place April 26-28
Vans and light commercials set to be the stars of 430+ stands
Volkswagen, Toyota and LDV return to the Show
The latest new vans from some of the best-known names in the Light Commercial Vehicle Industry are set to be a major draw at the 2016 CV Show, with key manufacturers such as Citroën, Fiat, Ford, Isuzu, Iveco, LDV, Mitsubishi, Peugeot, Renault, Toyota and Volkswagen all taking high profile stand space at the free-to-attend event.
One of the biggest names to make a comeback is Volkswagen, which will be using the show to exhibit its latest Transporter and Caddy and some of its conversions.
Commenting on the brand’s decision to return to the CV Show, Head of Marketing Kirsten Stagg, said: “We’re looking forward to being back at the CV Show in April. It’s great timing for us to consolidate the launches of the new Caddy and Transporter, as well as to meet customers and provide opportunities for our teams and those from our dedicated Van Centre network to build relationships.
“Meeting customers at the show gives us a chance to understand their requirements and demonstrate how we can support them and their businesses.”
Also making a welcome return is Toyota, which will be exhibiting the latest variants of its light commercial range, appearing at the CV Show for the first time since 2008.
“We are looking forward to returning to the CV show in 2016,” said Gareth Matthews, Toyota LCV manager. “The venue will provide us the perfect opportunity to demonstrate how we plan to increase Toyota presence and product line-up in the light commercial vehicle market. Further information regarding how we will develop this strategy will be revealed in the coming weeks.”
Other show highlights will be Mitsubishi, showcasing the very latest L200 pick-up, and the long anticipated return of the LDV name, with the new Chinese-built V80 panel van expected to make its UK debut.
The 2016 CV Show will also feature a massive range of racking and storage solutions for LCV’s from the likes of Bott, Bri-Stor, Rhino, Sortimo, System Edstrom, Tevo and many others, along with a range of goods from smaller suppliers designed to make the art of personalising a van or making it fit for a specific job much easier.
With over 19,500 visitors attending CV Show 2015, the event remains the ‘go-to’ event for anyone involved in operating commercial vehicles, logistics and distribution based businesses.
CV Show director, Rob Skelton, said: “After an amazing 2015, which saw a record number of vans and light commercial vehicles being registered, it’s clear that vans and LCVs will be a major focus of this year’s show, so it’s great to see some of the best-established names in the van industry returning to the most important show in the calendar for CV owners and operators.”
The Show is unique in that it provides visitors with the opportunity to fulfil all of their sourcing needs under one roof. From truck, van, trailer and fork lift manufacturers through to ancillary service providers including insurers, finance companies, tyre manufacturers, telematics and training providers, along with fuels and lubricants suppliers, the show is the perfect business-to-business environment for any individual or company involved in road transport.
CV Show 2016 takes place in Halls 3a, 4 & 5 at the NEC in Birmingham from 26-28 April.
