Our team at Interactive Communications all take their jobs seriously, we all keep ourselves up to date with what’s going on within the telematics industry so that we can make sure that when our customers and readers need information we can answer their questions.  We publish regular News Roundup reports on a monthly basis so that you know where to look for all the latest happenings within the industry.  We’ve stressed in the past just how important it is to attend industry conferences and events – it’s a great way of making sure you know all about any new developments, the very latest technology and the directions in which the industry as a whole is growing.  This will allow you to identify and make the most of new opportunities.

Coming up soon at the NEC in Birmingham is the Commercial Vehicle Show 2015.  It runs from 14th – 16th April, 2015 and is billed as the largest and most comprehensive road freight transport event staged in the UK.  Last year’s show attracted more than 18,000 business visitors from all across the country, all eager not to miss the business opportunity of the year. 

The CV Show is where commercial vehicle operators can meet with all the major industry suppliers.  Although there are no conferences or seminars, a massive 75% of visitors are fleet owners, senior managers and engineers with sole or joint purchasing responsibility.  For the exhibitors, this is the place to be – right in the midst of thousands of key buyers all in one place.

The CV Show enjoys a high contact to sale ratio, providing exhibitors with a massive number of potential leads all under one roof.  The event is divided into two sectors, the Workshop Sector and the Cool Sector.

The Workshop Sector displays all manner of workshop, bodyshop equipment, maintenance management systems and replacement parts.  The Cool Sector is of interest to those who need to move goods that need constant temperature control.   Visitors can check out a full range of refrigerated vehicles, the latest fridge units, monitoring equipment and products suited to cold chain operations.

Entry to the show is free for visitors on all three days and you can register here to get your e-ticket to the event.  As an added incentive, Virgin Trains are offering a 25% discount on advance fares for those who wish to attend this important industry event.

We’ve already stressed just how important it is to attend these type of industry events – it’s a great way to keep up to date with the latest developments and a valuable opportunity to network.  You’ll come across people from other regions of the country who may become valuable resources for referrals and best practices.  Industry events and conferences are usually attended by the brightest and best in the sector and attending an event of this sort will mark you as an expert in your field.
