A Show For All Reasons

THIS SUMMER will see the launch of Road Transport’s Expo, a brand new UK commercial vehicle trade show. To find out more about this exciting initiative we caught up with Road Transport Media’s divisional director Vic Bunby and fired off a few questions…

TN: Let’s hear your best elevator pitch
VB: Road Transport Expo, which takes place at Stoneleigh Park, is all about the truck and everything related to it! HGVs will be at the very heart of this brand new event, which will incorporate a number of existing trade shows. Using a hub-and-spoke model, attendees will be able to see the latest trucks, tippers, trailers and related equipment in the central hub, and then tailor their experience by visiting the specialist zones that best suit their interests.

TN: Tell us more about the zones
VB: There will be several of them, including the Tipper Zone in association with Tip-Ex, a Tanker Zone closely linked with Tank-Ex, an urban zone in association with Freight in the City, a Knowledge Zone, a Materials Handling Zone, a Trailer Zone, a Used Truck Zone, as well as Ride and Drive opportunities. We’re adding zones all the time, and will be in a position to make some more exciting announcements in the near future, so watch this space.

TN: So no more Tip-Ex at Harrogate or Freight in the City at Alexander Palace?
VB: That’s correct. From 2022 both these well established and popular events will be incorporated into Road Transport Expo.
