“The inaugural show is off to a very promising start,” said president and CEO of HFUSA Larry Turner. “We expect to fully book all of the exhibition space by early 2017 as the North American commercial vehicle industry has responded favorably to this dynamic new event and how we have positioned it to meet the industry’s evolving needs.”
Additionally, the organizers have adjusted the original trade show dates. On Monday, September 25, the NACV Show will open only to attendees who have received an invitation from one of the show’s exhibitors. The trade show is officially open to all attendees from Tuesday, September 26 through Thursday, September 28.
Joe Glionna, president of Newcom, said, “Listening to our show committee, we backed everything up a day for a more fluid schedule, giving exhibitors a full day with their invited guests. Although we have adjusted the dates, the event will still run over four action-packed days. We are excited about offering our exhibitors the chance to conduct intensive one-on-one meetings with some of their key customers on Monday before the show opens to all attendees.”
The organizers expect to open registration prior to January 2017. Additionally, NACV Show is offering a wide range of hotel options within walking distance to the trade show venue, Georgia World Congress Center.
