2014 ITTES supported by transport industry icons

The promotional campaign for the next International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show (ITTES) in Melbourne has officially kicked off, with planning for the country’s largest trucking event already underway. The show will be held 3-6 April 2014.

To coincide with the official campaign launch comes the release of a testimonial video featuring some of the country’s most regarded transport personalities, who jointly emphasize the importance of the event for Australia’s commercial road transport industry.

The long list of illustrious names who support the 2014 show includes Glen Cameron, Managing Director of the Glen Cameron Group; David Simon, Managing Director of Simon National Carriers and Chairman of the Australian Trucking Association; Jim Riordan, Managing Director of Riordan Grain Services; Ian Cootes, member of the Road Transport Hall of Fame and former Managing Director of Cootes Transport Group; Paul Cootes, Managing Director of Cootes Quarry Products, and many more.

“Listening to the needs of the transport community has enabled the ITTES team to continue to develop an exhibition that caters for suppliers and fleets alike in a world-class environment befitting a world-class industry,” said ITTES Show Director, Clint Hendry.

“We have always stayed loyal to our credo ‘Where Business is done’ and are pleased to announce a list of exciting new developments that will continue to improve the effectiveness and atmosphere of the exhibition.”

According to Clint, thorough consultation and consideration of the direct feedback from exhibitors and previous show attendees have lead to implementing a host of changes for the upcoming event.

For instance, the Melbourne Showgrounds facility has undergone further developments including the addition of climate control in several buildings and the show footprint has been re-designed with additional, centrally located buildings to improve traffic flow and offer a more cohesive experience for visitors.

“It now allows us the additional exhibition space to accommodate those unfortunate exhibitors who have been on the waiting list in previous years,” Clint added – revealing that the show will now run Thursday through to Sunday, predominantly to make the event more accessible to owner operators and fleet personnel and to maximize local and interstate visitors taking part.

“The formula for success continues to develop and grow as we leave no stone unturned to ensure that we deliver a platform that enables the industry’s best to show us what they are made of.”

In the coming week all exhibitors will receive the 2014 show prospectus kit, including all the relevant information needed to secure their involvement at the next event.
