With registration now open, Coach & Bus UK returns to the NEC Birmingham on 4-5 October with a new name and branding for 2017.
To more accurately represent the sector it serves, the biennial show has been renamed Coach & Bus UK. This subtle yet significant change (from Coach & Bus Live) ensures the event continues to grow in importance as the leading domestic showcase for the coach, bus and mini-vehicle sectors.
The free-to-attend trade event, supported by its show partner Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT), will connect over 6,000 key industry buyers and decision makers with around 200 sector leading exhibitors. They’ll be offering everything from the latest vehicles, accessories and workshop equipment, to IT solutions, legislation updates, and essential business services for the UK market.
Confirmed vehicle manufacturers and dealers to date include: Arriva, AYATS, BASE, EVM, Dawson Rentals, EvoBus, Irizar (UK), Minis to Midis, Mistral, Moseley (PCV), Salvador Caetano, Swansea Coachworks (SA), Volvo and Yutong.
“Coach and Bus UK is already by far one of the most important and effective business events for the sector, and now the new name more accurately reflects the industry and strength of our visitor profile,” says event director, Helen Conway.
“Once again, the support from our partners this year has been phenomenal. We have lots of new ideas, which we are working on, to ensure we create an amazing, totally unmissable two days for this thriving sector,” she says.
