Also at the event, visitors to the Millbrook stand will see a display of services with a 360 degree visual to demonstrate the key capabilities and facilities at Millbrook.

Guests will then be invited to take part in an exclusive tour of Millbrook¹s facilities, including a look inside its high-tech laboratories, where they will see live demonstrations and drive around some of its 70km of varied test tracks, including the Alpine Hill route.

Phil Stones, head of emissions and fuel economy at Millbrook will be presenting a seminar on the comparisons between the laboratory, proving ground and real world driving using the portable emissions measurement system (PEMS) at 10:30am on Thursday, September 10.

Alex Burns, CEO of Millbrook said: "As the leading independent vehicle test, validation and engineering service provider to customers in the automotive, transport, petrochemical, defence and security industries, Millbrook is the ideal location to host the UK¹s number one low carbon vehicle event.

"We are looking forward to exhibiting at LCV2015 and hope that the highly visual element of this year's stand will prove to be a popular draw for people who may not be aware of the full scale of services we offer here at Millbrook."
