- Online event scheduled for 18th and 19th November 2020
- Decision made due to ongoing impact of COVID-19 and following stakeholder feedback
- Online event format offers an effective means of engaging UK and international audiences with UK low carbon and connected automated mobility innovation themes
Loughborough, UK, 2 September 2020
Cenex, the organiser of the annual Low Carbon Vehicle (Cenex-LCV) and Connected Automated Mobility (Cenex-CAM) events, has announced that both events, originally planned to take place at Millbrook in Bedfordshire, will now be held online in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The events will take place online on 18th and 19th November 2020. Further details will be announced shortly.
Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex, says, “We are very grateful for the support we have received from our many exhibitors and are disappointed not to be able to host the events in our usual way, which has been a successful format for both showcasing technology and networking. However, we are now committed to making a success of an online Cenex-LCV and Cenex-CAM and believe these events can play an important role in getting Britain back to business and supporting a green recovery.
“On balance, we feel the online event format offers an effective means of enabling UK and international audiences to engage with UK low carbon and connected automated mobility innovation themes, including innovation policy, technology and market developments.
“We would like to thank the events team at Millbrook for their assistance and support during the many months of event preparation, including in-depth COVID-19 contingency planning. With their support and advice from the Association of Event Organisers, we were confident we could deliver a safe event for exhibitors and visitors to attend. Unfortunately, concerns related to COVID-19 continue and neither the business community nor the events sectors are expected to return to business-as-usual by November. We have therefore concluded that the online approach remains the most pragmatic and inclusive option. “We look forward to returning to Millbrook in September 2021 and will be announcing our 2021 dates shortly.”
