Cenex LCV and CAM events postponed until November

Cenex has postponed the Low Carbon Vehicle (Cenex-LCV) and Connected Automated Mobility (Cenex-CAM) events until November 18-19, due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The events were originally planned to take place at Millbrook, in Bedforshire, on September 9-10.

Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex, said: “We and our supporting partners are committed to the Cenex-LCV and Cenex-CAM events, given their importance for technology showcasing and networking of the UK motor-industry innovation community. Although we are disappointed to have to postpone, we feel this is the most pragmatic approach at this time, given ongoing uncertainties.”

The decision was driven by three key considerations: Firstly, Cenex wants to ensure the wellbeing and safety of its exhibitors, attendees, speakers and organisational staff.

Secondly, it wants to allow more time to prepare, based on greater certainty as to how the relaxation of social distancing will enable international events to recommence and operate.

Thirdly, as international visitors are a key part of the make-up of the Cenex events, it expects current quarantining arrangements to be lifted between now and November.

“To date, we have been following the official government and healthcare advice, and after extensive discussions with our supporting partners, which comprise government and industry, the new November date was agreed upon.

“This allows us more time to see how the gradual relaxation of social-distancing measures will progress and to make the necessary logistical arrangements to ensure both events abide by the ‘new normal’ regulations, so we can make it a safe environment for all.

“Our host, Millbrook, is working with the Association of Event Organisers (AEO) and the UK government to reduce the risks posed by the virus,” Evans added.

If the COVID-19 threat has not reduced by autumn and the public-health risk remains high, Cenex said it will host both events virtually.
