Mercedes plans big return to CV Show in 201127 April 2010

Mercedes-Benz has already announced that it will be exhibiting at the Commercial Vehicle Show in 2011, with all of its divisions represented in Birmingham next April.

Despite no truck manufacturers being in attendance, the Commercial Vehicle Operator Show 2010 was a huge success, with truck dealerships, specialist truck makers and LCV manufacturers taking advantage.

Renault, for example, arrived at the show with plenty of LCV news, and a number of other van suppliers expressed their satisfaction with how the event had gone.

That said, the more familiar CV event is likely to take place next year, and Ian Jones, managing director of Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles, approves. "The organisers of this year's Commercial Vehicle Operators Show have stated their intent to reinstate the show proper next year, and it's important that there is strong support to that initiative."

Jones continues: "If there is another economic downturn we will obviously need to review the decision, and the CV Show will only be viable if other manufacturers join us. A lot clearly depends on the health of the British economy in the next 12 months, but it is our clear intent to return to the CV Show in 2011."
