Australian trucking history on show at Brisbane
Taking place this weekend, this year’s event will feature 300 exhibits with the industry’s heaviest vehicles, trucks, trailers and the latest accessories on display over three levels of the centre.
More than 35,000 visitors from around Australia and the world re expected to visit the show, contributing more than $70 million to the Queensland economy.
Brett Wright, CEO at Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia, the organisers of the event, said innovation was a strong focus of this year’s show.
“This major milestone is a reflection of the innovation and resilience of the Australian heavy vehicle industry,” he said.
“As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations we have developed the Heavy Vehicle Industry Innovation Centre showcasing the latest research and development and connecting businesses with support programs and services.”
BCEC general manager Bob O’Keeffe welcomed the Truck Show back to the centre.
“The 2017 Brisbane Truck Show is the fourth held at the centre and with its long and proud tradition it gets bigger and better,” he said.
“The Truck Show is in a class of its own with regard to size and scale and has enormous appeal and benefit for Brisbane.”
