Shane Webcke affectionately known as "The Warhorse" and Rugby league legend, veteran of 21 State of Origins, 263 first-grade games for the Brisbane Broncos and Channel Seven's sports reporter, backs up for the trifecta as the Brisbane Truck Show's ambassador. Webcke, will remain the ‘public face’ in all print, radio and television commercials and pre-show promotional events for Australia's premier transport industry's event.
Noelene Bradley, Brisbane Truck Show Manager, for CVIAQ says, the three peat appointment of Shane as our show ambassador was driven primarily by the positive feedback received from our 2013 show attendees and exhibitors. His high public profile, both through sport and now as a TV presenter together with the fact that Webcke has a genuine passion and direct interest in the transport industry, makes him a powerful advocate for the event.

After four days the Brisbane Truck Show has now come to an end with the event boasting an unprecedented growth eclipsing the successful 2011 Show.
Brisbane Truck Show Manager Ms Noelene Bradley said the feedback from exhibitors this year had been very positive with the two main industry business days Thursday and Friday recording strong attendance levels which actually translated to product sales and positive sales lead generation.
As the first year as the Show Manager Ms Bradley said she was very happy with the way the Show went.
“The feedback from attendees and exhibitors reflects and overwhelming support for the Show this year,” she said.
The attendance figures of 6,878 (16%) up on Thursday and 8,977 (9%) up on Friday equates to a 15% per cent overall rise from 2011 for the two core industry days of the show.
Saturday was on par with recent years while Sunday eclipsed 2011 figures meaning an overall rise in attendance to 37,774 or just under an 8 per cent growth for the Show.
“Saturday was once again a massive day while Sunday was a whopping 18 per cent bigger than usual with just over 7,473,”Ms Bradley said.

It was billed as the tournament of brains and brawn where teams were pitted against each other for the honour of being Australia’s best apprentices.
The stage was set at the Brisbane Truck Show Apprentice Challenge. Victors Sam Savva and Daniel Johnston from Volvo Commercial Vehicles Brisbane achieved the seemingly impossible beating fellow Swedish manufacturer Scania Australia’s Luke Riseley and Aaron Wemyss in the first heat of the Apprentice Challenge on the opening Thursday of the Brisbane Truck Show.
