The latest changes to English COVID-19 controls have allowed the organisers of the ITT Hub event to confirm that Europe’s first major transport trade show this year, will go ahead as planned on 30 June and 1 July.

It will be based at the Farnborough International exhibition and conference centre where, even without the next round of COVID-19 relaxations expected on 24 June, it will be able to accommodate 1,000 visitors indoors, and 4,000 outside.

The event’s aims are to focus on the transport sector’s “Road  to net zero”, and its impact on vehicle technology and fuels.

With 150 exhibitors confirmed, and a few places still to fill, the event is being supported by established brands including DAF, Iveco, Mercedes-Benz and Renault, as well as the latest from innovative manufacturers such as Volta.

Ten different government agencies will also be attending.

As well as the static exhibition, It will include Ride and Drive opportunities with around 100 vehicles promised, as well as a series of nine conferences in the 300-capacity conference hall, the first being hosted by British astronaut, Major Tim Peake.
