With further enhanced fringe program and an influx of new exhibitors, the Malaysia Commercial Vehicle Expo 2019 writes history again and consolidates its position as largest exhibition dedicated to the commercial vehicle industry in South East Asia.
The anticipation for the event was palpable whenever industry players gathered and finally the show arrived with a lot of highlights to report. Themed “The Future of Transportation in Malaysia”, the fourth instalment of the exhibition further highlighted the importance of commercial vehicles to move the nation.
Event organiser Asian Trucker Media proudly reported that there has been an increase in bookings for space for this year’s exhibition. “Not only have we received more bookings compared to the previous exhibitions, but we actually sold out all space available. There were even requests for space that we could not accommodate anymore,” said Stefan Pertz, representing the organiser. It was learned that Asian Trucker Media is considering opening up more exhibition space for the 2021 exhibition to accommodate more exhibitors.
More to learn
Several exhibitors used the opportunity to engage with the industry during the show. Discussing future trends, Volvo hosted a seminar with the topic “Road to Electromobility for Malaysian Transport Industry”. Filtration expert Hengst welcomed delegates to learn more about how filters work, what to look out for to spot counterfeit filters and what is the best practices when servicing filters. Others took to the stage to present papers, new products or to share information.
Following feedback from previous shows, the organisers amended the networking platforms at MCVE 2019. “This time, we are offering networking opportunities throughout the three days. This is different from the last events were one specific event was meant to connect delegates and exhibitors,” said Pertz. In addition, the Hour of Power created a buzz throughout the event. Several exhibitors were given time slots during which they could “make as much noise as they want” in order to attract attention to their booth.
