Open for all van operators, VanExperience Live promises to be bigger than ever before, with more than 2,500 van operators expected to arrive. Taking place at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire across 10 week days from 20 June to 1 July 2016, VanExperience Live is now celebrating its 13th year.
There will be three main hands-on demonstration areas to help guests assess how Mercedes-Benz vans perform in all areas:
Drive It – A full range drive to experience the entire product line-up from Mercedes-Benz Vans, and compare them directly with competitor test vehicles
Test It – A challenging off-road course to show the skills of the Sprinter 4×4 and 6×6 vehicles
Trust It – A safety-focused activity, including handling on the all-new wet grip experience
Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans, said: “This is the first time in the events’ 13-year history that we are opening up the doors of VanExperience Live to all van operators, to really help them to make their minds up when it comes to assessing their next vehicle purchase – the feedback we receive each year proves the format is the best in the industry.
“We know how important vans are to our guests, and appreciate that many who attend aren’t ‘van drivers’ – they are people who use a van to deliver goods or services, so it is our promise to provide as much support as possible to these UK businesses, enabling them to focus on delivering their customers great service without having to worry about their van.
“I look forward to seeing many van operators there – from a one-van business, through to some of the biggest fleets in the UK.”
With experts available throughout the event to answer any questions, guests can use their time at VanExperience Live to fully understand the range of products and services offered by Mercedes-Benz Vans and how Mercedes-Benz Vans can support their business, including: MobiloVan free roadside assistance; Accessories to personalise any Mercedes-Benz van; GenuineParts and their importance; and the Star Expert team will be on-hand to answer any van-related queries, including product, industry and legislative questions.
A complete display of vehicles will also be available to access, including vans from more than 30 body builder and conversion exhibitors to show how adaptable a van can be. In addition, guests will have access to all areas of the business, including Management, as the entire Mercedes-Benz Vans UK team relocates to the event for the duration.
