HVIA CEO, Brett Wright, announced the Brisbane Truck Show will return to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) from Thursday 16 to Sunday 19 May 2019.

“We are delighted to confirm the next show, on the back of a very successful four days,” said Wright. “33,763 came through the door this year, tipping past attendance figures for 2015. More importantly, anecdotal evidence tells us that the audience included a tremendous calibre of business customer.

“Exhibitors really need to be commended for the presentation of their displays. They really went all out to create a special visitor experience, so it is gratifying to see so much business being done on the stands.”

The 2017 Brisbane Truck Show covered 35,000 sqm over three levels of the venue, filling every space with an array of trucks, trailers, technology, components and equipment.
