In just 12 weeks’ time Euro Bus Expo 2014 â€“ the leading dedicated trade fair for the bus and coach industry in Europe this year â€“ opens its doors at the NEC Birmingham.
The free-to-attend three-day show â€“ on Tuesday-Thursday 4-6 November â€“ is already a sell-out in exhibition space terms, with 255 confirmed exhibitors.
With the focus firmly on the future of passenger transport, Euro Bus Expo 2014 will provide an excellent platform for exhibitors from every part of the industry supply chain, in 25,000m of hall space in one of Europe’s leading exhibition centres.
All the latest mini, midi and full-size buses and coaches from leading manufacturers and dealers will be on display, providing a unique opportunity to see all the latest models under one roof. Ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs) â€“ including hybrid, electric and gas power â€“ are likely to feature strongly.
Euro Bus Expo 2014 will once again feature a number of zones, providing exhibitor clusters and making navigation easier for visitors to the show. Dedicated Technology and Environmental Zones will give visitors the opportunity to see all the latest developments that are increasingly shaping and reducing the environmental impact across the European passenger transport sector, while the Accessibility Zone will highlight on-going innovations that are making transport by buses and coaches ever more accessible to all user groups.
A stimulating and informative education programme will be running across all three days as an integral part of the show, taking place both on the Environmental Stage and Master Class Theatre.
With just 12 weeks to go before its opening, the excitement around the show is already beginning to build, according to Show Director Mark Griffin. â€œWith the holiday season now pretty much behind us, exhibitors are now gearing up to maximise their presence, at what is a major industry event.
â€œWith the show fully sold out in terms of exhibition space, excellent visitor pre-registration levels and a real buzz already across our social media channels, all the signs point to an action-packed three days at the NEC in the first week of November.
â€œEuro Bus Expo is where our industry meets â€“ at the last EBE in 2012 we had visitors from 40 countries. It is also an exceptionally well-attended show, not only by bus and coach operators and suppliers from every sector, but also local and national government representatives and transport media.
â€œThe show is easy to get to â€“ the NEC Birmingham has superb road, rail, domestic and international air connections, with a wide range of accommodation options within easy reach. When at the exhibition, there are excellent visitor facilities, including media facilities, an international visitor lounge and a special ‘Recharge Lounge’.
â€œWith just 12 weeks to go to the start and dozens of reasons to attend, delegates can pre-register now to be kept informed through regular news updates right up to the opening, as well as following the show via social media channels.â€
