Better, greener, more connected transport: Euro Bus Expo 2022
Euro Bus Expo returns to the NEC, Birmingham, on 1-3 November 2022. The premier bus, coach and mini vehicle exhibition is a must attend for local authorities.
Established as the leading UK-based international trade exhibition for the bus, coach and mini-vehicle sector, Euro Bus Expo returns to the NEC, Birmingham, on 1 November to 3 November 2022.
The industry showcase will bring together thousands of thought leaders, suppliers, manufacturers, operators, transport planners and strategy influencers. Each has a critical role to play in connecting communities, encouraging bus patronage, improving service and, not least, achieving net zero.
To this end, transport planners are managing more regulations and contract decisions than ever before. All while dwindling government resource and rising inflation rates are increasing focus on investment returns. Visiting Euro Bus Expo can help to alleviate these mounting pressures.
Achieving net zero
Free to attend seminars will inform about the milestones, challenges and possible solutions to make the vision for carbon-free transport a reality. Visitors will hear about the practicalities of implementation, infrastructure requirements and how others are adapting to similar circumstances. There will be also sessions dedicated to game-changing technologies and industry developments.
With hundreds of suppliers in one place, it’s easy to find and compare all of the new emission-reducing products and technologies available, and to research which of these quickly developing opportunities will deliver the best value for money.
The exhibitor line-up includes over 20 vehicle manufacturers that will be showcasing the fleets of the future – including brand new launches. Several will be demonstrating vehicles in the dedicated Zero Emission Zone. Here, visitors can experience the latest carbon-free battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles first hand. They will also see new features designed to lower the costs of operating and make the passenger experience more desirable.
To convince people to use greener travel options, services need to be available, accessible and convenient. Exhibitors will be showcasing an array of products and services to help with these challenges.
Among hundreds of exhibiting brands are suppliers whose technologies can make seamless journeys a reality. From route mapping and traffic flow modelling, through multimodal ticketing and on-demand bus and coach services.
There will be smart passenger information systems that can keep commuters informed about expected arrival times and any delays, and products to increase on-board comfort.
In the miniplus Area, visitors will find mini vehicles fitted with modern accessible aids, including step-free design, wheelchair lifts, bespoke seating and more safety items.
The show will be brimming with developments that can create the new customer experience needed to drive a shift from cars to buses.
To drive this shift, collaboration is necessary between authorities, businesses, supply chain partners, policy makers – and, not least, communities. As the entire industry comes together in November 2022, there will be ample opportunity to network. Visitors can meet new contacts, develop relationships, share ideas, learn from others and forge new partnerships.
An industry challenge
Buses and coaches have vast potential to reduce pollution and congestion, to connect people and support economic success, and they have a central role to play in achieving decarbonisation goals. This is a collective industry challenge.
