South Bank Roadhouse

The Brisbane Truck Show is far more than a trade exhibition. It is a showcase of the amazing capability and capacity of the Australian heavy vehicle industry. It is the place where the industry gathers – a broad community coming together from across sectors and across the country.

It is for that reason we are expanding the show outside of the walls of the convention centre, to create an exciting new entertainment and networking hub in the South Bank precinct.

HVIA is excited to announce that Little Stanley Street and Stanley Street Plaza will be closed to traffic to create the South Bank Roadhouse including a major display of trucks and trailers.

Restaurants and bars throughout the precinct have decided to rename the area the South Bank Roadhouse for the duration of the truck show. They’ll be rolling out the proverbial red carpet for you and your guests, to create a festival atmosphere including live entertainment; many will be offering special deals for truck show visitors.

The week will see 30-40,000 people enjoying this exciting new initiative, a place for our industry to gather with customers, mates – both old and new – and the broader community.

Come and share in the spirit of this fabulous week of events – a great reason to host your guests in the area.

What is Australian Heavy Vehicle Industry Week?

This year sees 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.

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, so we’ve invited Brisbane Truck Show truck and trailer exhibitors to apply to put vehicles on display in South Bank. The catch is the vehicles have to feature community facing messaging 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 is coming to life.
