Less than a month away from the transport industry event of the year, the Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC.
Axtec are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year and we’re proud to have attended every single CV Show in all its formats since day one.
It’s a great event and the perfect showcase for anyone with products to sell into the commercial vehicle field.
Regardless of the type of fleet you run, there will be new innovations and ideas throughout the show and it really is a ‘must visit’ event. Even meeting up with existing suppliers can bring new ideas to help improve efficiency.
Money can be saved by buying on line of course and we all do that extensively these days. But some products don’t lend themselves to that sort of purchasing arrangement. In depth discussions might be need, site surveys completed and plans drawn up. All of which require meeting sellers face to face and what better place to do it than at the CV Show?

Getting out for a day and, after the show, attending meetings and surveys is all time consuming and costly and the temptation to buy something on line is great. But trying to short circuit the buying of highly technical products can very often prove to be a false economy in the long run.
Axle weighing is a greatly misunderstood field, we’re still earning even after a quarter of a century in business, and we often chat to buyers who maybe didn’t talk to someone face to face, bought something off the internet and later regretted it.
Even if you have no new products to launch, the Show is a great way of showcasing your existing products buyers who are currently using a competitor. What better way to demonstrate how superior your offer is than face to face in a business environment?
Meeting up with existing clients can also be fruitful. Everyone is so busy that it can be hard to catch up with old contacts but the CV Show is a great place to bump into them. And it often results in new business as they may bring a colleague or someone from another depot. And so a new conversation starts.
So if you’re in the market for transport related products or just searching for new ideas, the CV Show at the NEC 26th, 27th, 28th April is the place to be.
And if it’s axle weighing you want to chat about, we'll be on stand 5A79. So feel free to come along and say hello.
