Brisbane Truck Show Space Filled

All Australian truckies should mark 14th to 17th May as a must visit day for the 2009 Brisbane Truck Show as the Brisbane Truck Show steams ahead.

The heavy vehicle industry and its peak body – the Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Q’ld (CVIAQ) is not letting the global economic crisis stand in its way!
Commenting on preparations for the 2009 Queensland Truck and Machinery Show to be held from the 14 – 17 May at the Brisbane RNA Showground’s,
CEO Brett Wright said;
“The 2009 event is destined to be a record breaker on all fronts. Despite the economic uncertainty we are expanding! We are already in the position to announce that all previous show exhibition space has been filled and all the big truck and equipment manufacturers are locked in, ready and raring to go!

Our waiting list of additional exhibitors now stands at well over 200 applications, all of whom are keen to get a spot at the show for the first time. So with the recent approval of our Traffic Management Plan allowing the closure of Gregory Terrace, we have been busy re-planning the show site and doing everything in our power to accommodate as many of these prospective exhibitors as possible.
Our forecast is that the 2009 Queensland Truck and Machinery Show will deliver a marked increase in exhibitor and visitor numbers, which is great news on the back of announcements of show closures among other motoring industry groups. Add to that the recent announcement of the 30% Government Investment Allowance which must be taken up by June 30 and all things point to a much needed boost for our industry.”
Brett concluded by stating;
“The Queensland show is the only industry owned and run event of its type in Australia where all proceeds are invested back into serving and supporting the commercial vehicle industry. As the premier event in Australia our aim now is to position the Queensland event as unquestionably one of the worlds’ premier truck shows, located in one of the very best destinations in the world for show attendees to do business, relax and enjoy!”

In further good news for the Queensland event, the 2009 show has been endorsed by new major industry sponsors such as Fleet Partners, BP Australia and Brisbane’s RiverCity Motorway Group, the people responsible for the new tunnel system running underneath the city.
