Merc’s well established VanExperience Live is moving from Prodrive in Warwickshire to its new home at Millbrook Proving Grounds in Bedfordshire. Almost 2,000 people attended last year’s event, and this year witnesses the first drive of the all new Vito.

VanExperience Live will be held between June 2-12, and is focused around three main demonstrations, in addition to displays on the often overlooked elements of vehicle ownership, like aftersales support, tyres, safety, bodybuilders and conversions.

The three main demonstrations are ‘Drive It’, where attendees get to drive the 200 test vans, ‘Test It’, where off-road demonstrations on the 4×4 and 6×6 Sprinter are held and ‘Trust It’, which focused on the safety aspect of Mercedes-Benz Vans.

“Visiting VanExperience LIVE really does help our van buyers and drivers to make their minds up when it comes to assessing their next vehicle purchase – the feedback we receive each year proves the format is the best in the industry”, Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans, explained.

“We welcome almost 2,000 guests to VanExperience LIVE, offering them a full emersion in to our brand and everything that we stand for and I personally like meeting as many visitors as I can, with all Mercedes-Benz Vans colleagues joining me on site for the duration.”

Parkers Vans will be attending with a full summary of the day’s events, but if any van operator would like to attend VanExperience LIVE 2015, they will need to contact their local Mercedes-Benz Vans Dealer for full event details.
