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.

The award categories include some that might be expected, including best trailer and categories for best light or medium and best heavy duty truck.

A series of awards focus on innovation, including a technology category, component, equipment or service innovation category and the best body innovation category.

Then there are the real stars of the show; the awards that highlight the Australian heavy vehicle industry’s ingenuity; our willingness to push boundaries, paired with a demand for robustness of design, engineering and manufacture.

The Best PBS innovation category will highlight initiatives to achieve greater productivity for specific tasks, with the application of an overarching requirement to exceed safety benchmarks.

Then the two glamour awards will go to the best Australian designed and engineered product and best Australian manufactured innovation.

These awards will really showcase the industry’s capabilities. Amongst the contenders there are many already well-known, if not iconic, brands. Then there are many others who have quietly been creating ground-breaking products, technology and services that are changing the way the transport industry does business.

There are some stipulations to products being eligible for nomination, including their release date. Products must have been released to market since the last Brisbane Truck Show in May 2015. The criteria recognise that some products have been around for much longer, however now include significant new features, upgrades or enhancements.

It is going to be exciting to see what products are put forward for consideration, let alone the finalists and eventual category winners. The exciting thing is that every one of them will be on display at the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show.

The prestigious 2017 Brisbane Truck Show Awards will be presented with the support of Platinum Partner BP Australia at a special cocktail event at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on the first evening of the show, Thursday 25th May from 6.30pm – 9.00pm. Entry will be via a separate ticket. Ticket sales will be announced closer to the show.

Nominations will open next week and close on 12 April. More information is available here.
