ATS Commits to the CV Show
ATS Euromaster has announced its support for this year's Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show, saying the event's return after a two-year absence is “evidence the industry is recovering from recession.” As a direct result of the economic downturn the 2009 event was cancelled and last year a scaled-down version was held, dubbed the CV Operator Show, which ATS Euromaster attended. This year's event will be held in its original format at Birmingham's NEC from12-14 April and ATS Euromaster will occupy a 144 m2 stand to showcase its tyre management expertise.
Peter Fairlie, Group Sales Director at ATS Euromaster, said: “This event is hugely important within the transport and logistics sector and it has been missed. It’s the single biggest opportunity of the year to meet fleet operators under one roof. It is encouraging to see the show is back in full this year and ATS Euromaster is proud to be exhibiting. We are cautiously optimistic that the return of the CV Show is an early sign that the transport and logistics industry is getting back to full strength.”
First seen in 2000, the CV Show is organised by the Institute of Road Transport Engineers, the Road Haulage Association and the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. The last full show in 2008 involved 600 exhibitors and drew 28,500 visitors with business owners, directors, senior managers and engineers accounting for three quarters of all guests.
