IRTE round table event to address key industry topics at CV Show 2018

24th Apr 2018

Some of the biggest names in road transport will be represented at the IRTE round table event at the CV Show 2018.

Bringing together the likes of MAN Truck and Bus, DAF, Iveco and Parcel Force, the round table will cover the most urgent topics central to the road transport sector, including the platooning of HGVs, alternative fuels, emission controls and the future of diesel Euro VI.

David Crawford, CV Show Sales and Marketing Manager, said: “We are delighted that the IRTE round table event is taking place at the show. Each year the show brings together influential members of the road transport community to discuss progressive measures to move the sector forward.”

John Parry, Managing Director at JSP Consulting and formerly Engineering Director at Exel, will host the event, which will be covered in Transport Engineer and Route-One magazines. The discussion will lead to a statement, communicating the IRTE stance on each of the topics discussed.

For 2018, the IRTE stand will feature four distinct zones: apprenticeships, irtec, professional registration and Transport Engineer magazine. Each area will have experts ready to talk to show guests about their respective sector.

Back by popular demand is the professional registration workshops, led by the IRTE team, who will present a series of interactive seminars designed to guide members through the process of EngTech, IEng, CEng and CEnv enrolment.

Organisers are expecting a huge turnout, with the exhibitor space – continuing the extended floor space of 2017 - sold-out again.
CV Show Director Rob Skelton said: “The show is the biggest road transport event held in Britain, bringing together over 20,000 business visitors, and showcasing technological advances - such as telematics, emissions technology and safety systems - that will inspire anyone connected with this sector.”

The CV Show takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from 24-26 June.
