The Board of the Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland (CVIAQ) has announced the Queensland Truck and Machinery Show will now be called The Brisbane Truck Show, following the overwhelming support from industry of the decision to relocate the show to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) earlier this year.
CVIAQ President, Mr Bob Martin announced, “The CVIAQ has always listened to industry and the overwhelming message was to go to a dedicated transport industry show. We acknowledge and thank the Construction Mining Equipment Industry Group (CMEIG) for their support over the last 20 years, however the time has come for the show to go back to its roots. Over the last five months the CVIAQ has carefully assessed the support for the relocation to the BCEC and the transport industry’s needs for 2011 and into the future.
“Given the support for the move to the BCEC and allowing for future growth of the show, the CVIAQ Board moved quickly and has made the decision to provide certainty for all stakeholders,” CVIAQ CEO Brett Wright remarked. “This is yet another great evolution of the show and one which will only further enhance the show’s performance.
“The CVIAQ is dedicated to retaining the legendary atmosphere and characteristics of the show and now it will be at a superior venue for exhibitors and visitors alike. Visitors will enjoy the fantastic facilities where they can do business or just catch up with colleagues while taking in the show in a fully undercover, air-conditioned world class facility.”
The Brisbane Truck Show will be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from Thursday 5 May to Sunday 8 May 2011.
