Exhibitors from The Commercial Vehicle Show will swap trucking and transport for a night of greyhound racing at Hall Green Stadium, where they have hired the entire grandstand next week.
The Hall Green greyhound Millie, known to racing fans as Mary’s Millions, has been undertaking promotional work for the stadium.
Clive Feltham, managing director at Hall Green Stadium, said: “We’re looking forward to having a full house and trade shows are always guaranteed to bring a fantastic atmosphere. After learning that some of the Keltruck workforce love greyhounds, we thought we’d show our thanks to the local truck industry by popping in with Millie, one of our former prize racers.”
Keltruck, the world’s largest independent Scania dealer, is one of the big names exhibiting at the show. Marketing and Business Development Manager, Andrew Bentley, said: “We are looking forward to stepping away from the trucks and hitting the track next week, especially after a visit from Millie.
“The show is always a fantastic few days but it’s nice to kick back and get to know people from the same industry in a more relaxed environment. Hopefully we’ll back some winners too!”
