On Behalf of the people of Queensland, I welcome you to Australia's premier transport industry event.
The 2015 Brisbane Truck Show provides a wonderful opportunity for people in transport and related industries to meet and share ideas, establish business relationships and showcase new vehicles, equipment and technologies.
Queensland relies greatly on the trucking industry and we all owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women who ensure our goods and services are freighted safely and promptly around our vast State, day and night, three hundred and sixty five days a year.
I congratulate the Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland (CVIAQ) for bringing together this world class bi-annual event. It is estimated the 2013 Brisbane Truck Show injected an extra $61 million into the Queensland economy.
The expected 40,000 visitors to this year's show can look forward to seeing much more than gleaming trucks, trailers and the latest technology.
For the first time ever, the Brisbane Truck Show will feature a 'Health Tune-Up Centre' where people in the industry, particularly men between 30 to 60 years of age, can receive advice and assistance on their future health risks.
The popular competition where apprentices have to beat the clock to discover the mechanical hidden faults in a pair of identical trucks will also return with the 11th CVIAQ Apprentice Challenge.
To our interstate and overseas visitors, I invite you to experience all that Brisbane has to offer and I hope you can extend your stay to enjoy Queensland's world renowned tourist attractions.

Brisbane is pleased to welcome delegates for the 2015 Brisbane Truck Show to Australia’s New World City.
Brisbane is exceeding expectations as a conference destination and is building on the success of hosting the world’s largest peaceful and safe conference for world leaders – the G20 Leaders’
Summit in November last year.
The 2013 Brisbane Truck Show was estimated to have generated an extra $61 million into the local economy, which is great news for our hotels, restaurants, venues and retailers, and a similar
level of success is expected this year. Together with the strongest population growth in the country, competitive labour and property costs, close proximity and access to Asian markets,
world class universities and infrastructure, it’s not hard to see why Brisbane is the destination for new residents, business and tourists alike.
The Brisbane Truck Show, now recognised as Australia’s premier event is all about showcasing the industry’s best and this objective is clearly demonstrated during every show in recent history, through the highly popular ‘Apprentice Challenge’ a competition that pits skills, commonsense and determination in a ‘beat the clock’ race to discover the mechanical hidden faults in a pair of identical trucks.
“First and foremost the competition is a ‘hands-on’ practical test.” says CVIAQ’s CEO Brett Wright…
With 2015 signalling the 11th Apprentice Challenge to be hosted at the forthcoming Brisbane Truck Show, the challenge will once again pit six individual teams, comprising two apprentices per team against each other in a practical ‘hands-on’ competition to identify faults in identical Mercedes-Benz Actros 2655LS trucks in a set period of time.
There is this old saying that you are judged by the company you keep and on that basis the Brisbane Truck Show has been judged and found to be in great company!
Acknowledged as the premier transport industry event in the southern hemisphere, the Brisbane Truck Show attracts a local, national and international audience of around 38,000, including CEOs, fleet buyers and industry leaders.
They come because the professional management of the show ensures the delivery of one of the best floor plan designs, to ensure visitors can conveniently navigate their way around all of the exhibits with ease, and all under one roof, but in reality, the major draw cards come from the long standing business arrangements between not only the premium exhibitors returning over many years, but also the strong partnerships, and friendships that have been built and established over many years. So indeed the Brisbane Truck Show has for many years been judged on the company it keeps and the show organisers protectively guard those friends by ensuring they are rewarded for their loyalty.

Much praise has been given to the Brisbane Truck Show organisers for introducing a focus on industry health matters in 2015 and not just delivering the gleaming trucks, trailers and industry manufactures latest technologies. So the aptly named ‘Health Tune Up Centre’ will become one of the new draw cards at the 2015 show says Noelene Bradley, Show Manager.
“ We took the decision to introduce this health precinct following the outcome of our 2013 show survey which indicated that of the 38,000 or so attendees, around 85% were males between the ages of 30 to 60 of which over three quarters of them were directly involved within transport, logistics and warehousing industries. Being aware of various health statistics that indicated this group to be highest ranked for pending health risks, it was a simple decision for us to take positive action in providing advice and assistance in this area, hence the 2015 launch of this significantly sized precinct.”
