Road Transport Expo (RTX) has received external recognition for the success of its debut show last year by being named a finalist at the prestigious Association of Events Organisers (AEO) Excellence Awards for the Best Launch Event.

The awards category recognises the professionalism, commitment and teamwork involved in creating a brand-new industry show.

RTX is a highly-focused tradeshow with an ‘all about the truck’ focus, which was created to suit the needs of road haulage sector operators.

Its debut show attracted more than 150 exhibitors and 7,000 visitors and made a huge impact on the industry.

Building upon the success of the 2022 launch event, this summer’s RTX has expanded substantially in size and is proud to be a must-attend UK tradeshow with the support of every major truck manufacturer.

“We are delighted to be named finalists at the AEO Excellence Awards,” said Vic Bunby, divisional director at show organiser DVV International.

“From the very beginning, we kept our road transport sector audience at the heart of the event’s design and made sure it would deliver exactly what they wanted and needed from a business tradeshow. The RTX debut was a resounding success and we are confident the show will go from strength to strength as we continue to build the brand.”

This year’s RTX takes place from 28-30 June at NAEC Stoneleigh. Register online for your free pass to attend.
