Brisbane Truck Show crowds increase

The 2019 Brisbane Truck Show (BTS) was attended by 36,921 people over the four days.

Held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, it was more than a nine per cent increase on the previous event in 2017.

Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) Chief Executive, Todd Hacking, said it was gratifying to see how it was supported by the broader heavy vehicle industry.

“The halls were busy and most importantly the exhibitors were meeting with the people they needed to," he said.

“I have had so many of our exhibitors telling me the level of business that was done on the stands.

"There’s no doubt they deserve every bit of that success with the fabulous effort that each and every exhibitor goes to, working with us to create and deliver a world-class event.”

BTS incorporated Australian Heavy Vehicle Industry Week, a new event engaging with stakeholders and the public. These included exhibitor dinners, drive days, factory tours and other activations around the city.

"We saw this as a great opportunity to help them leverage those investments," said Hacking.

“The displays in Queen Street Mall by the Daimler Group and in Redacliiff Place by the Volvo Group are two great examples.

“More than anything we thank the industry across Australia who have supported this event for over fifty years, and they are telling us in an overwhelming fashion, that they want to see the Brisbane Truck Show prosper for fifty more," he said.

BTS will return to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on 13-16 May 2021.
