The organiser of the UK's largest B2B low carbon vehicle event for manufacturers, technology providers and fleet operators has confirmed the event venue and dates for its sixth annual national event.
LCV2013 (www.cenex-lcv.co.uk) will take place at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire on 4 - 5 September. The LCV event has established its unique positioning for the Low Carbon Vehicle community in the UK, combining a technology show with broad B2B focus, along with a ride-and-drive in a test track environment, delegations of international visitors and an extensive seminar programme. It presents an opportunity for all stakeholders in the low carbon vehicle sector to showcase and evaluate current and future technologies and to discuss the issues facing the sector.
The event's organiser, Cenex â€“ the UK's first Centre of Excellence for low carbon and fuel cell technologies â€“ partners with a number of Government departments and industry heavyweights to ensure the event offers exhibitors and guests the most comprehensive access to the latest technologies, initiatives and discussions that are driving the UK's low carbon vehicle sector. At this year's LCV2012, MP Michael Fallon gave the opening address, making it clear that the government will continue to support the development and use of low emissions vehicles.
Cenex Chief Executive Officer, Robert Evans said: “This year's LCV2012 event was extremely well received by exhibitors and visitors alike. LCV2013 will follow the same successful formula with a few further exciting innovations and promises to be the most significant yet. This is a really exciting time to be involved in the low carbon vehicle sector and we are proud of the position occupied by the annual event as the industry's key showcasing and networking event.
“Millbrook is the ideal location to hold the LCV event, its combination of permanent and temporary buildings offer versatile space and its unique track facilities provide the perfect environment for showcasing a full range of alternative fuel vehicles.”
