CV Show pushes tomorrow’s technology today

Birmingham, , UK: The future of the road transport, distribution and logistics industries will be at the forefront of the 2018 CV Show, taking place at the NEC, Birmingham, on 24-26 April 2018.

Exhibitors will show the latest technological innovations, advances in design and manufacturing as well as concepts for the products of tomorrow, demonstrating the cutting-edge progress of the sector.

The Cool zone in hall 3A is an essential visit for those transporting temperature-controlled goods. A huge range of refrigerated vehicles and bodywork, side by side with the latest fridge units, monitoring equipment and other products specific to cold chain operations will be on display.

Among the advanced technologies appearing at the show will be the latest in driver safety and assistance systems, cloud-based vehicle management software, and innovative production techniques that reduce waste, improve quality and increase efficiency.

At the heart of these progressive solutions will be the show’s Innovation Hub, returning for 2018 following its hugely popular debut last year.

Rob Skelton, director, CV Show, said: “The theme of technology is at the forefront of the commercial vehicle industry, and the show is a great platform to show that.

“That’s supported by the Innovation Hub, which we introduced to the show last year. We have a lot planned for it this year; a seminar theatre where we address emerging technologies that are happening in the industry, which is through expert speakers and audience participation. It’s a new element to the show and it worked well last year; we think it’s going to be even more popular at the 2018 show,” he said.

“It’s another reason for attending as a visitor because you can see all the exhibitors, but you might actually learn something that prepares your business for the future. To get the most from the event and all the latest information we encourage visitors to register now for a free entry pass, ensuring they receive important updates in the run-up to the event.”
