Thanks to the support of our partners, the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show is fully loaded with food and beverage options across all three levels of the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre
During a day at the Truck Show you could find yourself racking up a lot of steps – enough to put down as a good day of exercise. That will most likely also result in a good appetite … and thirst.
Well, we’ve got you covered – thanks to the support of a bunch of fabulous partners, the choices on offer are better, and better located, than ever before.
On the ground floor if you come in the main entry from Merivale Street, we have the perfect rendezvous point at Merivales Cafe. Merivales will have live entertainment every day of the show, thanks to Chevron Equipment Finance.
Just around the corner on the Concourse, trucksales.com.au are pouring the best espresso coffee on the southside, with its barista under the stairs.
That’s before you have even laid eyes on a truck or trailer.
In the main hall there are four Shell Card Cafes, lining the back wall of each of the main exhibition halls. The food offering has something for everyone, thanks to the crews from the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre’s amazing kitchens.
Upstairs are another 150 or more exhibits. Near the Grey Street entry, and outside the Plaza Ballroom, is the family zone.
It consists of free kids rides, free treats for the mums at the Pamper Parlour, remote control model trucks and another Shell Card Cafe.
Last, but by no means least, is Detroit Plaza. The famous Plaza Terrace is a brilliant outdoor activation which has often been referred to as Australia’s favourite truck stop – even if it is only open every second year.
Detroit is going all out to make sure that is the case at BTS23. In fact, somewhat ironically, more people will probably read this article in the program – while sitting at Detroit Plaza with a mate, a burger and a couple of beers – than anywhere else on the planet.
While you are up there, make sure you check our NTI’s latest restored truck ‘Daphne’. The gorgeous girl could be yours with a ticket in the raffle raising funds for MND research.
