Organizers have canceled this year's Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show, slated for April 28-30 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England. In their press release, they said the CV Partnership, made up of the partners and representatives from the commercial vehicle and component sector, agreed to cancel this year's show.
The partnership recognized in December that the economic downturn creates a difficult environment for vehicle manufacturers to commit to large international exhibitions. Nevertheless, some 290 exhibitors signed up for the show, requiring the partners to consult widely with them on support for a focused engineering-based alternative.
The show is owned by the CV Show Partnership, comprising the Road Haulage Association, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, and the Institute of Road Transport Engineers, a professional sector of the Society of Operations Engineers.
