CV Show 2020

CV Show 2020

With thousands of visitors already pre-registered and more than 380 exhibitors confirmed to date, the Commercial Vehicle Show remains the ‘go-to’ event for everyone working in road transport operations, logistics and distribution-based businesses. 

The 2020 CV Show, which takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from 28-30 April, will see every segment of the road transport industry represented, with exhibitors spanning the whole road transport, distribution and logistics supply business. From truck, van, pickup and trailer manufacturers through to forklift trucks, insurers, tyres, telematics and training providers, fuels and lubricants suppliers and much more, the show provides everything fleet operators and sole traders need to help them purchase and maintain the safest and most efficient vehicles. 

As the largest, most comprehensive and best-attended commercial vehicle event in the UK, the three-day show provides truck and van operators with a far greater choice then can be found anywhere else. The central location and convenient transport connections to the NEC in Birmingham bring more than 19,000 visitors to the show to meet exhibitors from the UK and abroad. It’s the perfect annual meeting place for operators to catch up with vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, as well as providing the opportunity for them to learn about new products and services.

The biggest of its kind, unrivalled in size and visitor attendance, and offering the most comprehensive product range, more than 380 exhibitors are already confirmed, spreading over three of the NEC halls.

This year, a number of companies are making their first appearance at the show, such as the London Electric Vehicle Company and Midlands Truck & Van Ltd, featuring Mercedes and Daltec. Renault and Nissan are returning to the show for 2020 and CV Show will also be hosting regular exhibitors such as Ford, Volkswagen, Fiat Professional, Vauxhall, MAN and many others from across the industry.

“As organisers, we aim to give our visitors a complete package of the commercial vehicle industry,” said Murray Ellis, CV Show Director. “This is the industry's largest and most established commercial vehicle trade show with new vehicles, emerging technologies, and the opportunity to connect with key decision makers and other individuals who are as passionate about the sector as Freight Industry Times readers are.”

New for 2020 – Live Theatre

New on the agenda for 2020 will be a series of Live Theatre discussions, where sector leaders, innovators and commentators will talk about key industry issues throughout the three days of the event. Designed to educate and provide insight from within the industry, the timetable and guest speakers for the Live Theatres will be announced shortly. 


There are two dedicated zones within the CV Show to make it easy to find sector suppliers. To ensure your vehicles are kept running at maximum efficiency, the WORKSHOP zone will showcase everything from OE components and replacement parts to maintenance management systems, garage, workshop and bodyshop equipment.

For those moving goods to be kept at a constantly controlled temperature the COOL zone is a must-visit. Here you will find a huge range of refrigerated vehicles and bodywork, side by side with the latest fridge units, monitoring equipment and other products specific to cold chain operations.

The CV Show is open on Tuesday 28 April from 0830 to 1700, Wednesday 29 April from 0830 to 1700 and on Thursday 30 April from 0830 to 1630 and entry is free.
