All the required boxes have been checked for the Brisbane Truck Show – it’s go time.
That’s the message this week from organisers Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia with tickets officially now on sale for the industry’s biggest showcase from May 13-16.
Despite the obvious Covid-19 concerns – and the no-show of four big-name acts – 300 exhibitors, including Big Rigs, have confirmed bookings across all three levels of the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
HVIA Chief Executive Todd Hacking said the sense of anticipation is palpable.
“This is such an important occasion for the industry to get together,” Hacking said.
“It is a reward for the incredible job that has been done keeping Australia moving over the last eighteen months through drought, bushfires and the pandemic.
“I know I speak for all of our exhibitors when I say that we cannot wait to welcome trucking operators to Brisbane.”
Hacking said the exhibitors do an extraordinary job of raising the bar every show, and he doesn’t think this year will be any different.
“There will be a fantastic array of product on display, from the very latest trucks and innovative trailer designs, to components, equipment and ground-breaking technology solutions.”
Tickets have been held at 2019 rates with a full adult day ticket still just $22, and accompanied kids under 18 free. Click here to get yours.
Fully registered tickets will go into the running for the Ultimate VIP Experience Package thanks to the Morris Finance with one lucky attendee set to enjoy corporate treatment at Bathurst and the AFL, hot laps and numerous other prizes valued at over $45,000.
All tickets also give access to the nearby Civil Construction Field Days heavy equipment and machinery show. A free shuttle service will also be available, running between the two events.
“When the doors open and visitors start streaming through – there is really no better sight and we expect 2021 to be bigger than ever,” Hacking said.
“But what I really enjoy is seeing old mates catching up, sharing knowledge, fellowship and banter and, I think this year we all need that more than ever before.”
