The 11th biennial CTTC-Campion Insurance Coach & Bus Show 2022 is taking place once again at the RDS Simmonscourt Pavilion on the weekend of 19-20 November and promises to be a showcase of some of the leading brands and innovators in the passenger transport industry. In recent years, the event which was due to be held in November 2020 and again in November 2021, but was cancelled due to the pandemic.
The theme of this year’s Show will be “Sustainable Transport for a Sustainable Ireland” and exhibitors will focus on bringing their best-in-class solutions to the business representatives present around a number of key areas including transport evolution, sustainability, recruitment and retention, succession planning, accessibility and much more.
The event will be complemented by the prestigious Coach & Bus Show Dinner which will take place on the Saturday night at Croke Park. It presents a great opportunity for operators, their families and colleagues to meet and socialise in an informal setting, while hearing from senior industry stakeholders.
The two-day exhibition is the only one of its kind in Ireland and it will give operators a chance to meet with their peers, and industry leaders and gain invaluable insights on the latest products and innovations coming on stream in the mass transport marketplace.
In welcoming the return of the show, John Halpenny, Chairperson of the CTTC, said: “It is a great pleasure to see the return of the Coach and Bus Show following the postponement of the event in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The CTTC is very much looking forward to welcoming operators and exhibitors, old and new, from across Ireland, and beyond, to network, connect and succeed over the course of the weekend.”
CEO of Campion Insurance, Jim Campion added: “We are delighted to support the Coach and Bus Show as the headline sponsor once again. Our sponsorship of this event stretches back over a decade and while the event was disrupted in recent years due to the pandemic, our commitment to the industry is unwavering.
