April is the time of year everyone who is anyone in transport heads to the NEC for the CV Show.
Axtec have been supporting it in all its formats since day one and this year we’ll be on stand 5J102 in hall 5.
With just about everything available on the internet these days, are trade shows still relevant?
Surely buying everything these days is just a simple job of looking online, finding the cheapest price and clicking the order button?
Whilst that might be true of all manner of things, some products are more technical and require professional advice if they are to work at their best.
And that usually starts with a chat with a specialist – and where best to meet specialists in the transport industry than its premier industry event?
|See you on stand 5J102 at the CV Show 24-26 April|
Many show visitors come to see a specific product or supplier but it’s also a great way to pick up new ideas and find new solutions to old problems as well.
Technology in the transport industry does keep moving on after all.
We upgraded an axle weighbridge with some new software for one customer. He was having issues determining who was using the system and when but a brief chat about what he needed suggested that the Fleet Management Program would help.
Recording every tractor and trailer that weighed in date and time order with a report available whenever he wanted meant that he got exactly the information he needed.
And can now look out for efficiencies in his operation by knowing what his vehicles weighed and when.
Not every detail about a product or its options can be easily listed on a website.
Taking a day out of a busy schedule to visit the NEC may seem a wasted day but talking to an expert about a highly technical installation may well be the most productive thing to do that day.
So make a note of the dates – April 24th,25th and 26th and we’ll see you there.
