The North American Commercial Vehicle Show announced that it has adjusted the trade show's original dates to allow a more fluid schedule to benefit exhibitors.
On Monday, Sept. 25, the NACV show will open only to attendees who have received an invitation from one of the show’s exhibitors. The trade show is officially open to all attendees from Tuesday, Sept. 25 through Thursday, Sept. 28.
NACV is a new transportation industry show set to take place in Atlanta, Ga., that is jointly produced by Hannover Fairs USA and Newcom Media USA.
“Listening to our show committee, we backed everything up a day for a more fluid schedule, giving exhibitors a full day with their invited guests,” said Joe Glionna, president of Newcom Media. “Although we have adjusted the dates, the event will still run over four action-packed days. We are excited about offering our exhibitors the chance to conduct intensive one-on-one meetings with some of their key customers on Monday before the show opens to all attendees.”
NACV producers have also announced that 70% of the show’s exhibition space has been booked by top truck and trailer manufacturers as well as by commercial vehicle suppliers.
Booked manufacturers include Daimler Trucks North America, Navistar, Volvo Trucks and Mack Trucks, as well as Great Dane, Utility, Hyundai and Manac. Confirmed suppliers include Bendix, Continental, Meritor, Eaton, Tenneco, Hendrickson, SAF Holland and Dana.
“The inaugural show is off to a very promising start,” said Larry Turner, president and CEO of HFUSA. “We expect to fully book all of the exhibition space by early 2017 as the North American commercial vehicle industry has responded favorably to this dynamic new event and how we have positioned it to meet the industry’s evolving needs.”
Show organizers expect to open registration prior to Jan. 2017. For additional questions about the trade show, go to the show’s website: www.nacvshow.com.
