Having just celebrated the 40th anniversary of Live Promotions Events Ltd in many ways you couldn’t have planned it.
The company, founded by Managing Director Colin Ward, initially concentrated on the role of marketing services support for many of the ‘blue chips’ fulfilling their requirements and providing bespoke events to the wholesale and retail sectors. With companies such as Austin Rover, Allied Breweries and Marlboro all engaging Live Promotions to provide unique concepts and strategies for interesting and innovative branding awareness and fulfilment campaigns.
After many years of providing their services for other companies, Live Promotions developed a concept for a commercial vehicle event called Truckfest, which would be both a business to business and consumer event. Providing a shop window for the road haulage industry and a festival for operators and drivers.
30 years ago the Truckfest concept was rolled out and in 2012, as well as celebrating the anniversary of the event, the launch took place of the Irish version. Making five in all.
In 2012 the company was contacted by Burghley Park, who were playing host to Her Majesty the Queen and were honoured to assist with management and logistics support at the prestigious Jubilee event held at the stately home.
Bob Limming, Director of Live Promotions Events, says “Together with our historic motorsport, classic car, motorcycle, music, land rover & haulier events, there are new events in development which not only compliment our existing event portfolio but take it to the next chapter in the Live Promotions story. We can’t wait for 2013”. Visit our event pages for the full story.
The original Road Haulage & Trucking events in the UK.
Whether you are a driver, manager or operator, Truckfest events are the UK's premier trucking shows.
Truckfest has been wowing the crowds for more than 30 years now, in that time so many changes with road haulage and logistics have taken place that the industry has seen the demise of so many events. Truckfest has been the one constant for operators and drivers year on year, increasing in popularity. Truckfest has provided that all-important meeting place for all sectors of the industry as well as a viable alternative to make contact with both principles and drivers alike in a relaxed atmosphere.
Welcome to the Land Rover Show
