Truck Week 2014 is less than six weeks away, so get your event organised now to be a part of the nationwide celebration from 1–8 September.
TruckWeek 2014 already has events listed across NSW, Victoria, Queensland and the Northern Territory. But we need your help to make sure it reaches your community.
TruckWeek is a great opportunity to give your business or industry group positive exposure. Anyone can hold a TruckWeek event, and it can take any form that suits your business.
Registering an event is easy to do – just go to the website and fill in the online form. The TruckWeek team will then list your event on the website, and promote it through the @TruckAustralia twitter feed and the weekly Friday Facts newsletter.
You can find event suggestions at www.truckweek.com.au, or have a look at some of the events below for more ideas. This is our chance to show Australia how trucking delivers and celebrate our great industry.
