Many of the world's major car, commercial vehicle and public service vehicle manufacturers will join a record number of technology and infrastructure businesses showcasing products at LCV2011 on September 7 and 8.
Brands including Ford, General Motors, Toyota, Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover, Iveco and Mercedes-Benz have confirmed they will exhibit at LCV2011, which combines a business-to-business conference, exhibition and ride-and-drive experience.
LCV2011 takes place at Rockingham Race Circuit in Northamptonshire and is hosted by Cenex, the Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell technologies.
Alongside a range of vehicles available for delegates to experience on the ride-and-drive course - from hybrids and highly advanced internal combustion powered vehicles, to those powered by batteries and hydrogen fuel cells - there will be a busy conference programme, which will be opened by Mark Prisk, minister for business and enterprise.
The preliminary speaker line-up includes: Lord Paul Drayson, former minister for science and innovation and now managing partner in Drayson Racing Technologies LLP; Iain Gray, chief executive, Technology Strategy Board; Jerry Hardcastle, chair of the Technology Group of the Automotive Council; and Michael Hurwitz, director, Office of Low Emission Vehicles.
