THE bi­en­nial Malaysia Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cle Expo (MCVE) is back this year from May 18 to 20 at the Malaysia In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre. One of the var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ca­tions chan­nels for the com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle in­dus­try pro­vided by Asian Trucker Me­dia, the ex­hi­bi­tion serves to show­case the lat­est com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles to the Malaysian and South­east Asian mar­kets with “Con­nected Mo­bil­ity” as this year’s theme.

Big Data is in­creas­ingly be­com­ing a key in­stru­ment in man­ag­ing busi­nesses, whether it’s in­dus­trial or pro­vid­ing ser­vices to com­muters and trav­ellers. It is es­sen­tial to mo­bil­ity and con­nec­tiv­ity, which are two im­por­tant ar­eas in the com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle field; ben­e­fit­ing fleet op­er­a­tors and com­muters ac­cord­ing to or­gan­iser Asian Trucker Me­dia.

Since its de­but in 2013, it has at­tracted strong par­tic­i­pa­tion from lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ex­hibitors, show­cas­ing lead­ing prod­ucts and ser­vices as well as lat­est in­no­va­tions in the com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles in­dus­try. Oc­cu­py­ing 8000sqm of space, this year’s MCVE sees re­newed par­tic­i­pa­tion by past ex­hibitors and new.

MCVE 2017’s or­gan­is­ers an­tic­i­pate over 7,000 vis­i­tors this year, with fully sold ex­hi­bi­tion space.

There will also be booths from in­ter­na­tional ex­hibitors, a high­way rest stopthemed dis­cus­sion area, com­plete with food trucks and a chance to take part in the Sca­nia Driver Com­pe­ti­tion MCVE Edi­tion; which al­lows any­one with a stan­dard car driver’s li­cense to ex­pe­ri­ence the chal­leng­ing en­vi­ron­ment that truck and bus driv­ers face ev­ery day.

The event also marks the sev­enth an­nual Asian Trucker net­work­ing night and a lun­cheon for the mem­bers of the Asian Trucker Driv­ers Club which will be held on the May 20.
