Exhibitor numbers and booked floorspace for next year's show have already outstripped the 2013 outing by 26% and 17% respectively, in addition to which 2014 will see the return of Vauxhall and Renault for the first time since 2012.

Steve Bryant, Vauxhall's commercial vehicle brand manager, said: "As Britain's biggest van manufacturer, Vauxhall is delighted to be back at the UK's largest commercial vehicle show and is very much looking forward to returning to Birmingham in 2014."

Some 290 exhibitors have already booked for the 2014 CV Show, which will run from 29 April to 1 May 2014 across three halls of the NEC in Birmingham.

The show organisers - the Road Haulage Association, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, and IRTE (the trading company of the Society of Operations Engineers) - said the level of stand bookings already received "clearly indicated" and uptick in business for the UK road freight industry.
