If July 2012 was a relatively quiet month for the organisers of this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show, July 2013 tells a very different story.

Within 24 hours of the 2014 Show brochures being despatched to potential exhibitors, the first booking was received from Warwickshire-based AL-KO Kober; manufacturer of premium, high quality components used in the automotive, commercial and leisure industry.

As a CV Show regular, Paul Jones, the company’s Marketing Manager said: “The Commercial Vehicle Show has become a major fixture in the AL-KO Kober calendar. As far as we are concerned, it ticks all the boxes. It provides us with an exceptionally good shop window, it attracts a wide range of visitors and customers and creates a perfect networking opportunity. It’s also a good chance to catch-up with old friends and to make new ones.

“We’ve always had a successful Show and an early booking will ensure that we are situated near our customers. If this year’s turnout is anything to go by, next year will be very busy indeed and for us, the planning process is already under way.”

With nine months to go until the doors open on CV Show 2014, there is already a broad spectrum of product types on offer, indicating that next year the road transport industry will see another successful, all-encompassing event.

The 2014 Commercial Vehicle Show will run from 29 April-1 May 2014 at the NEC in Birmingham. For further information, visit, e-mail or call 00441634 261262.
