Exhibitor Stand Bookings Open – Avail of Early Bird discount

The 10th CTTC Coach & Bus Show 2018, sponsored by Campion Insurance, will once again be held at the RDS, Simmonscourt Pavilion on Saturday/Sunday – 17/18 November next. The biennial event continues its successful format with exhibition halls full of new products supported by service providers. The Coach Driver of the Year Competition and Gala Dinner is also part of the weekend’s activities.

“The Show is the only one of its kind in Ireland and gives Operators a chance to socialise with their peers and view the latest products and innovations in the market place, ” stated Kevin Traynor, National Director of the Coach Tourism & Transport Council (CTTC).  “The purpose of the show is to fund the work of the CTTC, as the voice of Ireland’s Private Bus and Coach Operators.  With significant challenges ahead in the areas of PSO Tendering, unfavourable conditions for School Transport providers, increased regulation, increased insurance costs and the challenges facing Operators in the area of accessibility and environmental legislation going forward, the CTTC’s work is more important than ever.”

Kevin is inviting potential exhibitors to book a stand early (by 30 June) to avail of an early bird discount by logging onto the CTTC website at www.cttc.ie and clicking on the heading: Coach and Bus Show and following the link to book a stand.

Driver of Year Competition: This year’s Show will once again feature The Coach Driver of the Year Competition, sponsored by Mercedes Benz Commercial Vehicles. The competition will take place throughout the Show weekend providing drivers an opportunity to display their diverse range of skills. Entrants have to undertake a Theory Test, an Interview and a Driving Skills Test on a predesigned test circuit. “It is designed to test every aspect of the entrant’s driving ability and knowledge and find a worthy winner who can claim to be Ireland’s top coach driver,” explained Kevin. Application Forms, along with terms and conditions can be accessed via the CTTC website – www.cttc.ie

Gala Dinner: The social highlight of the event is the Gala Dinner, sponsored by Mercedes Benz Commercial Vehicles, which takes place in the Ballsbridge Hotel, Pembroke Road, Dublin on the evening of  Saturday, 17 November.
