Registration is now open for Coach & Bus UK, the new name for Coach & Bus Live, which takes place from October 4-5 this year at the NEC in Birmingham.

The free-to-attend trade event is expecting over 6,000 attendees and around 200 exhibitors.  Confirmed vehicle manufacturers and dealers to date include: Arriva, AYATS, BASE, EVM, Dawsonrentals, EvoBus, Irizar (UK), Minis to Midis, Mistral, Moseley (PCV), Salvador Caetano, Swansea Coachworks (SA), Volvo and Yutong.

Event Director Helen Conway said: “Coach and Bus UK is already by far one of the most important and effective business events for the sector, and now the new name more accurately reflects the industry and strength of our visitor profile.

“Once again, the support from our partners this year has been phenomenal.  We have lots of new ideas, which we are working on, to ensure we create an amazing, totally unmissable two days for this thriving sector.”

Whilst new vehicles and technologies remains a practical draw for many visitors to the show, The Theatre, sponsored by SmartDrive Systems, will once again provide talks on the key issues and challenges affecting today’s public transport community from a range of leading industry figures. The full 2017 line-up is due to be unveiled in the coming months.
