Commercial Vehicle Show cancelled

The Commercial Vehicle Show, set to be held on April 28-30 at the NEC in Birmingham, has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A statement from the organisers of the Show put out a statement confirming the cancellation on March 19. It said: “It is with great regret that we announce that the Commercial Vehicle Show 2020 has been cancelled.

“In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic together with guidance issued by the government on Monday evening (16 March) that all mass gatherings are to be avoided, it is clear that the only realistic options for this year’s Show were cancellation or postponing to a later date.

“The option of postponing was given careful consideration given the importance of the Show to the road transport sector; however, it was felt there were too many unknown variables to make this option possible. As ever, our priority is to ensure the health and safety of all those involved with the Show.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our exhibitors, registered visitors, Show team and other stakeholders for their continued support during this most challenging and unprecedented of times.”
