With over 1,950 delegates and 154 exhibitors, Cenex LCV2013 set a new record of attendance at its two-day event, securing a total increase in visitor and exhibitor attendance of 5% compared with LCV2012.
The LCV event has established its unique positioning for the Low Carbon Vehicle community as the technology showcasing and networking event.
Attracting UK and international visitors, LCV combines a technology exhibition with broad B2B focus, a ride & drive in a test track environment, networking activities and an extensive seminar programme.
Highlights from this year’s event included Transport Minister Norman Baker launching the Government’s strategy to drive forward the ultra-low emission vehicles.
Baker said: “These are exciting times for the motoring industry as ultra-low emission vehicles are the future for road travel.
“Our vision is that by 2050 almost every car and van will be an ultra-low emission vehicle, with the UK at the forefront of their design, development and manufacture. This strategy moves us up a gear in pursuing that vision.”
Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex, said: “Cenex is extremely proud to be associated with such a successful event.
“We work closely with supporting partners from Government and industry to showcase the exciting developments in our industry.
“The UK automotive sector has proved to be at the forefront of technology and market innovation for low carbon vehicles and these past two days have highlighted the UK’s status as world leader.
“We have had a record turnout of visitors and exhibitors at LCV2013 and a full seminar programme with high quality speakers, wonderful sets of vehicles to ride and drive and great weather.
"This event is important because it brings together all the various stakeholders, key manufacturers of the supply chain and officials of the Department of Transport and BIS. Anyone who is anyone is here today” concluded Baker.
