SIAM is the nodal body for Automobile manufacturers in India and it conducts large Auto shows like Auto Expo every two years. It also conducts a dedicated show for buses show every alternate year to the Auto Expo. Now SIAM has announced a new show for Commercial Vehicles as COMVECS – Commercial Vehicle Show. This will be held at the same venue of other shows, at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, on March 1-3, 2017.
The event will showcase buses, trucks, commercial vehicle systems, accessories, tyres and tubes among CV-related products. The objective of this exclusive B2B expo is to showcase the latest technological developments, provide manufacturers the right platform to interact with focused customers, offer more visibility to focused customers and enable a better understanding of the requirements of different user segments. COMVECS 2017 will also see CV manufacturers display ambulances, school buses, army vehicles, mining and industrial application vehicles, and pick-up trucks apart from coaches, city buses and trucks. The Indian commercial vehicle industry, which is the second largest bus producer and the fifth largest truck maker, has emerged as one of the most important in the world. The domestic CV sector is poised for major transformation in the coming months with BS IV emission norms kicking in April 2017 and BS VI in 2020.
With already Bus & UV show over lapping with Auto Expo interms of products displayed by bus manufacturers, this show will be a clear overlap for CV manufacturers. It seems, that Indian CV manufacturers need to reserve products for each and every shows.
