The CV Operator Show marks a welcome return to Birmingham's NEC for the partnership that bought you the CV Show, last held there in 2008. Moreover, as managers of the first CV Operator Show, IRTE (Institute of Road Transport Engineers) is hosting an interactive stand offering visitors a relaxed, informative and engaging base from which to explore the exhibition.
The IRTE stand (no. 5750) will house dedicated Transport Engineer and irtec sections, providing a wealth of information to benefit engineering professionals. Transport Engineer, the IRTE's industry-leading technical journal, has recently launched a dedicated website and visitors will be able to learn more about this comprehensive resource.
The IRTE's voluntary technician licensing scheme, irtec, certifies the practical and theoretical competence of light and heavy goods, service and passenger carrier vehicle technicians. Through mock on-screen tests, visitors will be able to measure their knowledge against the recognised safety and competence qualification. IRTE is also hosting the irtec Awards, sponsored by Halfords, to recognise fourteen technicians who excelled in their recent irtec tests.
In addition, the IRTE's membership team will be on hand to answer any questions, offer advice and explain how the IRTE can boost your career.
Show Manager Corinne Hines, who is leading the team managing the CV Operator Show, said: "This event has been championed by IRTE and is set to offer exhibitors and visitors a unique experience, benefiting industry at a crucial time. I am thrilled at how successful the preparations for the Show have been. It is going to be a triumph."
The Commercial Vehicle Operator Show will take place on 13-15 April at the NEC, Birmingham. To register for free tickets, or for more details, please visit www.cvoperatorshow.com.
