Australian Transport Industry’s premier event, the Brisbane Truck Show – the 5th biggest transport equipment show in the world – returns to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on Thursday May 16th.
More than 35,000 visitors are expected to attend the four day event which is the largest single event to be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre in its 18 year history.
The dazzling showcase of the latest trucks, trailers and transport equipment and technology celebrates everything that is Australian trucking. Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland (CVIAQ) CEO, Brett Wright said the event has grown in prominence and professionalism, but retained its grass roots ethos. “There is something for everyone at the show from fleet managers to owners and drivers to families and children of all ages.”
The show which is the largest automotive show to take place in Australia this year is expected to provide a boost to Queensland’s economy of $58 million.
2013 is a special year for the Australian Trucking Industry and for the Truck Show with two of Australia’s premier truck brands celebrating significant milestones – Mack Trucks are celebrating 50 years of local production and Western Star Trucks Australia celebrating 30 years of doing business in Australia.
Rugby League legend and former Bronco, Shane Webcke, a one-time truckie himself, is once again the ambassador and face of the Brisbane Truck Show.
