With the road transport sector undergoing a rapid and complex Net Zero transition, the Commercial Vehicle Show is returning to NEC Birmingham in April 2024 in expanded form to help operators prepare their businesses for growth against a complex and ever-changing backdrop of new regulations and technology. 
 
With the EU expected to implement new emissions standards for conventional truck and van engines from 2027, the UK ending the sale of new non-zero emission vans and trucks under 26 tonnes by 2035 – with heavier HGVs to follow in 2040 – and a national shortage of truck technicians, the commercial vehicle industry is undergoing the most radical changes in its history. For operators, manufacturers and technicians looking to futureproof their fleets and skills, the most essential fixture in the commercial vehicle calendar – now in its 23rdedition – will for the very first time include an essential conference covering decarbonisation, including electrification and hydrogen, skills and recruitment, and technical updates. 
 
Last year’s edition of the show welcomed almost 12,000 C-suite executives, transport managers, engineers, procurement professionals and directors from across the public and private sector – all planning to renew their fleets, upgrade their operational management and find new ways to grow their business. With 98% of visitors holding purchasing authority for vehicles, the event is Britain’s business centre for truck, van, trailer and other commercial vehicle technologies that are set to shape the sector over the next decade. 
 
With an audience that faces significant challenges and opportunities over the next few years, more than 300 manufacturers and suppliers are expected to showcase their tech and expertise to the entirety of the sector, from major public sector bodies looking to make long-term large investments in fleets, to owner-operators keen to learn how to adapt their operations against a backdrop of growing emissions legislation.
