BusNSW has announced the postponed Australasia Bus and Coach Expo has been rescheduled and will be held a year later than originally planned over two days on Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 October 2022 at The Dome and Halls of the Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park.
Executive director of BusNSW, Matt Threlkeld said that BusNSW was excited to announce the new dates for 2022 after postponing the 2021 Expo due to COVID and the lockdown in Sydney.
“The dates have been chosen following the consideration of school holidays, venue availability and other industry events in 2022,” Threlkeld said.
“We believe the 12-month delay gives us the best opportunity to host a world class exhibition and optimise attendance,” Threlkeld said.
The COVID-safe event will involve displays covering more than 13,000 square metres, all under the one roof.
“We will soon commence discussions with industry suppliers regarding bookings for booths and display areas,” Threlkeld said.
“Transport for NSW is leading the way on the transition to zero emission buses and will be proudly supporting the Expo,” Threlkeld said.
“We anticipate that there will be a strong focus on battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell buses, so the event will provide a great opportunity to showcase this technology,” Threlkeld said.
“We have an opportunity to build on the new Australasia Bus and Coach Expo brand as we promote the event over the next 12 months.” Threlkeld said.
The Expo will include two important social events, with a welcome function on Tuesday 4 October 2022 and an industry Gala Dinner on Wednesday 5 October 2022.
Suppliers, operators and industry stakeholders can keep informed in the lead up to the Australasia Bus and Coach Expo 2022 via the official Expo website www.busandcoachexpo.com.au
