Exhibition opportunities at LowCVP's 'Moving North' Conference, 12 April. More leading speakers announced!

Wed 07 March 2018 | Back to news list


The LowCVP is inviting interest in exhibiting at the 'Moving North' Conference to be held in Manchester on April 12. There are limited spots for small vehicle exhibits outside the venue and space inside for small stands. More leading speakers, to follow the opening keynote by the Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, have been announced. The event is being sponsored by Uber and GEFCO.
The Conference, to be held at Manchester Metropolitan University, will focus on the challenge of cutting carbon emissions and air pollution and seizing the business opportunities for automotive and fuel supply companies in the Northern Powerhouse that are being stimulated by the low emissions shift.
Held in collaboration with the Mayor of Greater Manchester and the Northern Automotive Alliance, the event is also supported by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, Transport for Greater Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University. Delegate bookings are now open for the event. 
Internal exhibitions will be in the delegate networking area which will be used during breaks, and for the drinks reception which will take place after the event. There are a maximum of two spaces for smaller vehicles to be displayed immediately outside the entry point to the Conference at MMU which may also feature in photo opportunities for the Mayor and other leading visitors.  There is also one sponsorship opportunity remaining - for the networking reception which follows the Conference in the late afternoon. Please contact the LowCVP Secretariat for more information (secretariat@lowcvp.org.uk).
