Mercedes VanExperience 2015 goes live at Millbrook

Mercedes CitanThis year’s Mercedes-Benz VanExperience Live is taking place at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire, for the first time in its 12-year history, from 2 to 12 June. It’s an invitation-only event and caters for over 1,800 customers and fleet operators during the two weeks.

There will be three main hands-on demonstration areas to help guests assess how Mercedes-Benz vans perform, including the opportunity to experience the entire LCV product line-up. Additionally, there’s a challenging off-road course to sample the abilities of the Sprinter 4x4 and even the special 6x6 Oberaigner conversion.

Being a Merc event there’s a safety-focused activity which compromises a ‘city’ driving course with Citan, a drive to demonstrate safety systems such as Collision Prevention Assist and Blind Spot Assist, and a self-park/reversing camera challenge in the latest generation Vito.

There will also be a Service24h vehicle on display to demonstrate how Merc can fix over 80 per cent of breakdowns at the roadside, a fully-accessorised van to highlight the range of products available from the options list and an expansive static display featuring vans from more than 30 bodybuilder and conversion specialists.

“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,” said Steve Bridge, managing director, Mercedes-Benz Vans. “The feedback we receive each year proves the format is the best in the industry.

“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.”

Anyone wishing to attend VanExperience LIVE 2015, will need to contact their local Mercedes-Benz Vans Dealer for full event details, or register their interest online here.

For those that can’t make it to VanExperience Live, Mercedes will have a full line-up of products to test at DRIVEit 2015 from 7 – 9 July at the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground In Leicestershire.
