Once again it’s coming up to that time of the year, when our industry comes together for possibly their biggest dedicated event held in Europe.


Euro Bus Expo 2014 will take place on the 4th, 5th and 6th November at the NEC Birmingham in Hall 5, where McKenna Brothers will be in attendance on stand D98, which is easily located directly opposite ADL’s stand.


This year’s show looks like being bigger and better than any previous show and the McKenna stand will be full of all the latest products we have available.


Along with our range of traditional printed destination blinds and mobitec coded Smartblinds for which we have become renowned, we will also be showing the full mobitec/LAWO range of electronic signs and passenger information systems. These will include the ultra lightweight Ultima signs which along with being available in the standard amber LED are now also available in white. Ultima LED signs offer a saving in weight of up to 50% when compared to most existing signs, they also have a low life cycle cost and green focus, offering reduced fuel consumption, reduced operating costs and to complete the green theme they leave a considerably smaller carbon footprint.


You may have seen or heard recently about The Guide Dogs for the Blind ‘’Talking Buses’’ Tour, where along with our assistance they kitted out a bus with a full mobitec Audio – Visual system which included amongst other features ‘’Next Stop’’ Audio information which is beyond value for a blind/partially sighted person enabling them to use public transport with confidence and this system will be on our stand for you to see at first hand its full capabilities.


We will also have on our stand a surprise new concept, so new to us that it will be the first time we have shown it in the UK.


Do you know that McKenna Brothers print and supply vinyl livery and graphics to some of the UK’s largest bus builders/operators, you may also not know that we offer a full vinyl livery design and fit service both at our factory in Middleton or at a location of your choice anywhere in the UK. We do of course still supply all types of required legal lettering, logos, No Smoking stickers, along with the many different material types of Regulation School Bus Signs, we can even help you to design and then supply any bespoke vinyl that may be individual to your own company.


So please visit our stand and speak with one of our excellent team who will happily discuss all our products and options available.


You could also enter our special show competition draw, which would give you a chance to win an IPAD MINI.
