The Brisbane Truck Show celebrates its 50 year anniversary

Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) has today launched the 50 year anniversary Brisbane Truck Show, to be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) from Thursday 25 to Sunday 28 May 2017.

HVIA Chief Executive Brett Wright said the major milestone is a great reflection on the innovation and resilience of the Australian heavy vehicle industry.

“The show has come a long way from its humble beginnings when twenty-one truck, trailer and component manufacturers and suppliers came together at Haulmark Trailers’ premises in Rocklea in 1968.” Brett said.

“The 2017 Brisbane Truck Show is the fourth that will be held at BCEC, and will feature up to 300 exhibitors displaying the latest trucks, trailers, components, equipment, accessories and technology.”

Mr Wright announced a series of new features and improvements for the 50 year anniversary show.

“As part of the celebration HVIA will be featuring an innovation, manufacturing and workforce development display on the Plaza level,” Brett said.

“Our focus is always on making the event a great experience for visitors and exhibitors. The improvements we’ve made for the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show range from online ticketing to the exhibition layout.”

“As previously, visitors can enter BCEC from any of three points however the main foyer entry will no longer interfere with visitors moving between the main halls and the upper floors.”
