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.”
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.

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.
