CM Show 2020: All you need to know about THE virtual event of the year!
The Commercial Motor Show 2020 is an exciting new concept – a virtual exhibition and conference for the road transport industry.
Held over three days, the Commercial Motor Show will put exhibitors in front of an audience of thousands of commercial vehicle buyers and operators, all without the need for social distancing.
In addition to seeing the latest vehicles, products and services, visitors to this free-to-attend event will be invited to sit in on a wide range of interactive webinar sessions covering a range of topical issues including Brexit, cutting carbon emissions, the skills shortage and the Direct Vision Standard.
There will also be the chance to partake in live exhibitor chats, video calls and product demonstrations.
When does it take place?
29 September – 1 October 9am to 5pm.
What exactly is a virtual exhibition?
Simply put, it’s an event run completely online, which is hosted on a webpage for a period of time. Think of it in the same way as a traditional, live tradeshow but exhibitors and visitors connect with one another on the web, rather than in-person.
Is it easy to take part/attend?
Absolutely. You simply register and click the link that is sent to you (remember to check your spam if it doesn't arrive in your inbox), log in and you will find yourself in the event. You’ll then be able to move about between webinars, exhibitors and the networking lounge.
Do I need to download specific software?
Most popular web browsers, such as Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Edge will all work just fine.
Will there be IT help available?
Yes 24/7 and a simple link to access it.
Do I need to stay on my computer all day?
Not at all, you can come and go as and when it suits your working day.
Will I be able to talk directly to the exhibitors?
Yes. By incorporating audio, video and text-based chat capabilities, exhibitors can answer any questions you may have.
Is there a webinar programme?
Yes, visit thecommercialmotorshow.vfairs.com/ for speaker line-up and full timings for every day of the show.
What happens if I miss a webinar?
Webinars will all be available online to watch after the live event.
How will the networking lounge work?
An informal chatroom environment will encourage all visitors to make valuable connections with key industry peers and businesses they would potentially like to work with. There will also be the opportunity to meet the experts taking part in our seminar programme.
Are the truck OEMs exhibiting?
We are delighted to have six of the major manufacturers taking part: DAF, Iveco, Isuzu Truck (UK), MAN Truck and Bus UK, Mercedes-Benz Trucks and Renault Trucks. There is also a wide range of exhibitors from all across the industry to explore in the live exhibition hall area.
How long after the show will the information still be available?
It will remain live for 30 days after the show.
Is it free to attend?
Yes, completely free of charge, simply register online.
How do I register?
Who’s organising this?
The show is organised by Road Transport Media, the group that publishes Commercial Motor, Motor Transport, Truck & Driver and Transport News and their associated websites and events.
What will you do with my details?
We will only share your details with the event exhibitors you visit, so they can follow up with you after the show has finished.
How long will a visit take?
This is entirely up to you. You can dip in and out of the scheduled webinars according to your interests, and spend as long as you like in the lounge and perusing the exhibition stands.
Are there goody bags?
The exhibition stands will have competitions running and may offer virtual goody bags when you visit them.
