Exciting opportunity to display your heavy vehicles at South Bank Parklands.
HVIA is excited to announce that Little Stanley Street and Stanley Street Plaza will be closed to traffic to create the South Bank Truck Festival including a major display of trucks and trailers.
The 2019 show featured the launch of Australian Heavy Vehicle Industry Week as the umbrella event encompassing the Brisbane Truck Show, and the many significant complementary events, activities and activations, both within the BCEC and across the city.
Australian Heavy Vehicle Industry (AHVI) Week focuses on promoting the heavy vehicle industry’s values around a set of key themes: safety, innovation, sustainability, careers, knowledge and community.
One of its goals is to foster broader community awareness about the heavy vehicle industry’s vital role and positive impact within the community.
With the support of the Queensland Government, the City of Brisbane, South Bank Corporation and the precinct traders that aspiration came to life.
South Bank Truck Festival – Major heavy vehicle display and entertainment & networking hub
The opportunity to showcase our industry in this spectacular location provides the perfect opportunity to share our story with the community in a tangible and lasting way.
The week will see 30-40,000 people enjoying this exciting initiative, a place for our industry to gather with customers, mates – both old and new – and the broader community.

How does your vehicle promote AHVI Week themes?
Participating suppliers are requested to mark up their vehicles (trucks and trailers) to include community-facing messaging that showcases the key themes of Australian Heavy Vehicle Industry Week: innovation, safety, sustainability, careers, community, knowledge
We expect that this will take place with the application of professionally designed and applied stickers (or printed curtains) attached to the vehicles to showcase how the vehicle reflects the themes.
For example – a prime mover might feature labels applied to its exterior cabin panels that say:
- Blind spot detection sensors
- Front underrun protection system
- Adaptive cruise control
- Active safety systems
- Pedestrian alert automatic braking
- Lane change assist
- LED headlights
- Euro 5 emissions control
- Class-leading fuel economy
- Built in Australia
- Fatigue monitoring sensors
A trailer might say:
- Australian designed engineered and manufactured
- major supporter of xxxx drought relief project
- over 20 Australian companies – directly supplied parts, components, equipment and technology for the production of this trailer
- reliable curtain arc technology
- non-slip buckle
- our factory team includes over 100 apprentices
- conspicuity markings for side-on night-time safety
- electronic stability control – rollover protection
- faster load/unload times
- easy to maintain
- reduced risk of repetitive strain injuries
- led lighting
- Australian steel & aluminium
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
- Anti- Lock Braking System (ABS)
- Anti-rollover electronic braking system (EBS)
