The Commercial Vehicle Partnership, comprising the SMMT, RHA and SOE, and the CV Show Committee, made up of the partners and representatives from the commercial vehicle and component sector has agreed to cancel this year's CV Show scheduled for 28-30 April at Birmingham's NEC.


The partnership claims some 290 exhibitors had signed up for the Show requiring the partners to consult widely with them on support for a focussed engineering-based alternative.
