COMvex 2023: The impossible is possible. The main exhibition of commercial vehicles ended brightly and ambitiously
From May 23 to May 26, the COMvex exhibition at the Crocus Expo IEC became not only the main platform for the presentation and presentation of a full range of commercial vehicles, but also the most anticipated premiere as part of a grand exhibition event – the synergy of three industry projects: COMvex, CTT Expo, and CTO Expo.

The main exhibition of commercial vehicles occupied the entire area of Hall 15 and part of the Crocus Expo street exposition, which amounted to 27,201 sq.m. From the first minutes of COMvex, 114 exhibitors from Russia, Belarus, China, Turkey and South Korea actively joined the presentation of products, equipment, the latest developments and innovative solutions. Cargo and passenger vehicles, LCVs, electric vehicles, trailers, semi-trailers, superstructures, auto parts and components, as well as the best developments in the field of IT and service for commercial vehicles were presented by both the largest market players and brand new companies: AZ URAL, GC "STT", East Wind (Dong Feng Trucks), Grunwald, KDM Plant, Compass Auto (Sitrak), KAMAZ, KZAA, MAZ, MZ Tonar, Mega Drive, PH - Lubricants, Rustrak, Rusman, Scan-South-East (Dauyn), Techinkom-Spectech, Transport Center (Yutong), Chaika-NN, Photon Motor, FAV-Eastern Europe, Shakman Rus, BEIBEN, NURSAN, LUKOIL and many others.

So, for the first time in Russia at the COMvex exhibition, transport for the logistics of the "last mile" was presented. Orthaus Trailers presented a fully electric low-tonnage delivery van Pilotcar P–1000 - a car for urban logistics with the functionality of the final delivery of goods around the city.

The company "Scan-South-East" held the official opening of the representative office of DAYUN in Russia and the EAEU countries, also presenting new cars.

Gazprom Gazomotornoe Fuel and Beiben Truck Rus, a distributor of one of the largest Chinese automakers, have signed a cooperation agreement to promote the development of the natural gas market as a motor fuel. Yulia Bors, Beiben Trucks shared her impression of the debut at the exhibition, which absolutely coincided with the brand's debut in Russia: "The exhibition is striking in its scale. Huge traffic in non-stop mode. There are a lot of potential customers, many offers of cooperation. The level of consumer activity is very high. We are introducing a new brand on the market and are glad that it is absolutely in demand. We have ambitious plans to popularize our brand. See you next year!".

The group of companies "Modern Transport Technologies" held a presentation of a compact and maneuverable bus, and also presented a manufactured goods van "Sable NN". Marketing Director Mikhail Bakhtarin spoke about the design features of the novelty.

Sergey Komarov, Technical Specialist at Faw Eastern Europe: "We have found new foreign partners here, introduced our customers from remote regions to each other, and of course solved our problems."

A representative of the Ural Automobile Plant also shared his impression of COMvex 2023: "New partners, promising suppliers who can influence the quality of our equipment and the development of transport and the industry as a whole. The COMvex exhibition allows you to combine the latest technologies and commercial transport."

There was also a premiere in the "passenger" theme — the Foton Tunland pickup truck. The Chinese company Foton has announced the resumption of deliveries of this model after a four-year break. "An incredible number of new contacts, meetings, negotiations, purchase requests and dealerships gives us hope that our products are in demand by the market. Here, at COMvex 2023, a representative of any segment can find a full range of all technical solutions. We see that the Russian market is important and interesting," — the opinion of Deputy General Director Roman Ryzhikov, Photon Motor Company.

Commercial vehicle specialists showed a high level of expectation for a successful professional exhibition, which has not been seen in the industry for more than 5 years. 33,683 professionals visited COMvex. An important factor in the high consumer demand and interest in new suppliers is confirmed by the impressive figures: an average of 295 visitors per COMvex exhibitor. Moreover, more than 27,000 visitors play a role in company decision-making and hold management positions. The qualitative composition of visitors is brightest represented by transport companies and commercial vehicle fleets/retail, with almost 12,000 visitors; transport service companies (service and repair), with more than 8,000 professionals; and commercial vehicle dealers, with more than 4,000. Among the visitors are such companies as BELUGA GROUP, "V.I.P. Trans, Avtoline Group, Cherkizovo Group, Mosgortrans, Cargo Line, KOMOS GROUP, Vostok-Zapad Company, Leader Truck, Moskovsky Transport, First Transcompany, PepsiCo, Russian Post, Pony Express, RAISING, Segezha Group, Delko TC, Miratorg TC, MosBus TC, Favorit and many others.

A representative of Support Logistic as a COMvex visitor was pleasantly surprised by the expansion of the range of presented companies "...not only in industry areas, but also in narrow areas. Among other things, there were high-frame machines with a new cabin, a large number of superstructures among the participants, interesting samples of trailer equipment, which are already worthy of competing with Western companies that have left the market, the representation of new brands, which are quickly scaled up without losing quality".
