The Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia has confirmed the dates of the 2019 Brisbane Truck show on the back of a successful 2017 exhibition.

The 2019 show will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 16-19 May.

According to HVIA boss Brett Wright, 2017 show exceeded attendance figures of the previous Brisbane show.

“33,763 people came through the door this year, tipping past attendance figures for 2015. More importantly, anecdotal evidence tells us that the audience included a tremendous calibre of business customer,” Wright said.

“Exhibitors really need to be commended for the presentation of their displays. They really went all out to create a special visitor experience, so it is gratifying to see so much business being done on the stands.”

Wright says that HVIA are striving for continuous improvement and that the comprehensive post-show examination has already begun.

“We’re very pleased with the outcomes of initiatives we put in place this year, designed to improve all visitors’ experience getting into and around the show during busy periods,” he said.

“It was especially noticeable on Saturday, as visitors flocked to the show, the flow through the venue was uninterrupted.”
