Commercial Vehicle Show NEC Birmingham April 12-14 2011

The VANorak will, of course, be attending this year's Commercial Vehicle Show at Birmingham NEC, to check out all of the industry's important new releases and developments.  I'll be reporting back with a few photos, scoops and opinions from my time at the show.  If you're hoping to bump into the VANorak and uncover my identity I'm afraid this won't be possible.  Using a combination of stealth tactics and disguises, I'll be there alright, but you won't know I'm there!

Anyway, as any CV anorak would surely agree, it's great to see this event back on the calendar, after it was cancelled in 2009 and - as far as I know - never even considered in 2010.  Nowhere else in the UK do so many of the movers & shakers of the industry, along with major manufacturers and distributors all convene in the same place at the same time.  It gives everyone a chance to catch up and do some all-important networking, besides getting excited by the new product launches.

At previous Commercial Vehicle Shows attended by the VANorak, major launches have included the Mk 7 Transit, the 200 PS 3.2 litre Transit, The New Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Volkswagen Crafter, LDV Maxus (okay, so not such a major launch!), among many others; so who knows what major new models will be unveiled at the 2011 show.  Check back here in mid-April to find out.
