Brisbane Truck Show to boost local economy

According to the AEC Group’s most recent Economic Impact Assessment, the Brisbane Truck Show will generate sales orders of million and contribute $57 million in additional expenditure in the Queensland economy – making for a lot of potential both inside and outside the convention centre.

With 287 exhibitors and around 36,000 attendees over four days the event is also the biggest event the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre has held in its 27 years of operation.

It has a long tradition of breaking big stories in the transport industry and this year is be no exception with the latest technology vehicles including hybrid technology and even a fully electric distribution vehicle range, and crowd-pulling charity projects like the famous ATA trailer built by CIMC Vehicle Australia to support the Australian Trucking Association. Bids for the trailer – to be seen at stand 72 – will be accepted until Sunday.

Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland (CVIAQ) President Bob Martin: “It is a truly world class event and looks absolutely stunning.”

Martin also presented the 2013 Tuck Awards at the Brisbane Truck Show last night. The winners are:

  • Risk Management Excellence: J. Smith & Sons
  • Outstanding Vehicle Component & Equipment Display: Detroit Australia
  • Outstanding Trailer / Truck Body Manufacturer Display: O'Phee Trailers
