NACV 2021 Show postponed

NACV 2021 Show postponed

Organizers of the North American Commercial Vehicle (NACV) Show are postponing their 2021 event, originally scheduled for Sept. 28-30 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center.

The decision was made after discussion with both manufacturers and fleets, who cited the lingering effects of COVID-19 on willingness to travel and attend large gatherings, organizers say. Additionally, the growing number of events competing with one another in the fall of 2021 also factored into the decision.

“Each organization and individual attendee has made choices over the past months based on a variety of factors, health and safety being the most pressing. While many exhibitors demonstrate commitment to the show and vaccination rates continue to rise, our research shows that the trucking industry will not be ready to attend large events like they traditionally have this fall,” said Ed Nichols, Vice President of Hannover Fairs USA.

Registered exhibitors were informed of the postponement earlier through a letter from the joint owners of the biennial event – Newcom Media and Hannover Fairs USA. The NACV Show will be rescheduled. Organizers plan to share more information regarding future plans in July 2021.
