The Brisbane Truck Show is the only business-to-business trade show representing and advancing the interest of manufacturers and suppliers of heavy vehicles and their components, equipment and technology.
The show has been a mainstay of the national event calendar since 1968. From humble beginnings, the event has grown into a leading international showcase for the trucking industry.
In fact, it is the largest show of its kind in Australia and the largest transport related show in the Southern Hemisphere.
Last year the biennial Brisbane Truck Show (BTS2019) was recognised as Australia’s Best Corporate Event and Best Exhibition, Trade or Consumer Show at the Australian Event Awards.
In 2021 the event’s importance to the heavy vehicle industry and its customers is all the more important in the absence of alternative major shows in other parts of the world.
Across the four days the show attracts in the order of 40,000 visitors including fleet executives, purchasing managers from industries including road transport, agriculture, retail, mining, construction, infrastructure, services, trade and local government.
The Brisbane Truck Show is far more than just a trade exhibition. It is a showcase of the amazing capabilities and capacity or the Australian Heavy Vehicle Industry.
Those qualities are now captured by the festival like atmosphere of the numerous activations and events under the umbrella of Australian Heavy Vehicle Industry Week.
The 2021 event will be a true showcase of innovation, design, safety, sustainability, manufacturing, skills and careers.
Over comings months we will be inviting exhibitors to stretch their wings and take full advantage of the exciting opportunities both within the walls of the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and across Brisbane.
I hope you will join us when the industry comes together in Brisbane from 13 to 16 May in 2021.
