Melbourne means business

The facts are undisputed: Melbourne’s 2008 International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show was the largest dedicated road transport expo ever to be staged in the Southern Hemisphere. And now the organisers are gearing up to make it even bigger and better in 2010.


The facts are undisputed; Melbourne’s 2008 International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show was the largest dedicated road transport expo ever to be staged in the southern hemisphere. Over 300 national and international based companies, representing all major truck, trailer and ancillary equipment suppliers, made the Melbourne Showgrounds site their home to demonstrate the dynamics and cost efficiencies of their products and services.

Such was the size of the event that it attracted over 35,000 genuine business leads from around Australia and overseas. All the exhibitors surveyed reported that the Melbourne based show brought high quality trade visitors to their stands and very few, if any, of the so called tyre kickers. The high level of business activities also moved off site, after dark, as many networking events were staged in and around the city precinct, located just 10 minutes from the newly renovated Showgrounds venue.

The success of the 2008 event, and the subsequent requests from previous and new exhibitors for more display space, has prompted the organisers, Transport Marketing Australia, to expand both the show and management committee. “We have now negotiated with the Melbourne Showgrounds to open the last of the remaining pavilions and outside areas for display use. In essence, the 2010 show will absorb all available showground space to cater for both the local and overseas industry involvement,” Showtimes will remain the same as the previous inaugural event commencing at10 a.m. and closing at 6 p.m., each day. With the move to the month of March, trade visitors and exhibitors alike can take full advantage of the States daylight savings times as well as Melbourne’s balmy autumn weather.
