The Road Haulage Association is delighted that with eight weeks to go until ‘show time’, the 2014 Commercial Vehicle Show and Workshop is very nearly fully booked!
“I’m thrilled at the reaction of the industry to this year’s show”, said RHA Chief Executive Geoff Dunning. “As of the end of February, total exhibitor space amounted to 31,347 square meters. That’s an increase of 2,251 square metres over the 2013 Show opening time last year. And when you consider that it was only five years ago the Show was cancelled due to recession, that is a great achievement by any standards. We have always said that the success of the UK’s road transport and logistics industry is an accurate indicator as to the health of the rest of the economy. On that basis, there can be no doubt that the economy is finally well on the road to recovery.”
The RHA, as a Show Partner, is particularly looking forward to the event. “The CV Show is a great shop window for us”, Geoff Dunning continued. “We have been leading the industry in areas such as load securing, training and haulage company systems and procedures. All of that will be evident on our stand and we will be welcoming members and non-members along to go into all of these and other issues in more detail. This is an exciting time for our industry so if you want to be part of it, Birmingham’s NEC is the place to be, from 29th April until 1 May. Please come and visit us on stand 5G40. We look forward to seeing you there.”
