Euro Bus Expo, the premier trade show for the coach and bus sector, returns to the NEC Birmingham on 12-14 November 2024.
The show’s free-to-attend Masterclass Theatre will serve as a dynamic platform for stakeholders to provide updates, present findings, share experiences, and explore solutions to industry challenges.
Brand new at Euro Bus Expo 2024
Presentation proposals are invited until 30 June, under eight programme themes. These include looking ahead, investing in our people, fleets of the future/sustainable travel, funding and finance, cities and transport, operations and compliance, back to basics, and innovation.
Organizers point out that “Presentations should help visiting operators to grasp changes in attitudes or upcoming trends, tackle a challenge in their business, improve a practice or process, learn about legislative or regulatory updates, or plan for a project or business development. They should aim to foster meaningful conversations and learning, and are to be shared in an educational, non-commercial, and non-self-promotional manner. Each proposal will be confidentially reviewed by a panel of operators and industry professionals, who will consider factors such as quality, originality, relevance, and interest to the audience. Proposals with overt commercial intent will not be considered for the Euro Bus Expo stage”.
Feedback and invitations to present or participate in alternative content-sharing opportunities will be provided by July 31, 2024.
Euro Bus Expo inviting presentation proposals
This year, for the first time, the organisers are inviting presentation proposals from the industry, encouraging all interested parties to be a part of the conversation, share their expertise, and influence the trajectory of the sector.
Says Helen Conway, Event Director: “Euro Bus Expo has always been the go-to platform for discovering what’s new and next in the coach and bus sector. This year, due to popular demand, we’re inviting speaker proposals to shape the show’s content. We strongly believe that diverse perspectives, on-the-ground experiences, shared best practices, and thought-provoking debates are crucial elements for an enriching experience. This is a unique opportunity for operators and suppliers to contribute to a community-driven event that leaves a lasting impact on the sector as a whole. This new approach to creating the programme reflects our commitment to creating an inclusive platform at Euro Bus Expo.”
