Who Comes and Why?

Amongst the tens of thousands of attendees at every Brisbane Truck Show are diverse groups whose motivation for making the trek to Brisbane differs substantially.
That is, of course, unless they are from Brisbane already. And that is exactly the point. HVIA has always commissioned an on-site survey to develop an effective snapshot of the demographics, experiences and interests of visitors, informing constant improvement of the event.


The ALL NEW Brisbane Truck Show Awards

The all new Brisbane Truck Show Awards celebrate our dynamic heavy vehicle industry by showcasing the last two year’s best design, engineering and manufacturing achievements, influenced by a culture of innovation and safety.

Judged by a cohort of the country’s leading transport and equipment journalists, the new Brisbane Truck Show Awards will highlight the industry’s latest product and service innovations.


What’s on display?

The 2017 Brisbane Truck Show creeps ever-closer, there tends to be a lot of conversation around the fuel pump, (or the water-cooler, depending on your particular office), about what new gear you can expect to see.

Naturally there’s an expectation that any new trucks you’ve read about will be there. Kenworth, for instance, dominated headlines pre-Christmas with the launch of the new T610. You’ll want to sit in the cab of course. So yep, tick that box.


National Apprentice Challenge entries open for Brisbane Truck Show

The 2017 HVIA National Apprentice Challenge is a “hands-on” competition staged live at the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show.

Teams of two heavy vehicle mechanical apprentices will represent each of HVIA’s three national regions, working simultaneously on identical trucks, generously supplied by Fuso Australia, to identify and rectify a series of programmed faults as the clock ticks.


Industry Careers Hub

Adjacent to the Innovation Centre sits HVIA’s workforce development showcase, the Industry Careers Hub. At the 2015 Brisbane Truck Show, HVIA sponsored and coordinated over 700 students and 50 educational staff from 23 schools to visit the show.


Over 300 exhibitors and always something new

The 2017 Brisbane Truck Show will feature more trailers than ever before with expanded displays and new exhibitors from all over Australia confirmed.

Brisbane Truck Show Manager, Noelene Bradley said visitors will not be disappointed with the displays.

“The show is set to exceed expectations with bigger, better displays by leading truck and trailer manufacturers and more big announcements in the pipeline,” Ms Bradley said.
